Following Liverpool’s 7-0 win against Manchester United at Anfield, Piers Morgan had three words for the team and their manager Erik ten Hag. Despite going into the match as favourites, having won the Carabao Cup and remaining unbeaten since January 22, United were torn apart by Jurgen Klopp’s rampant Reds. Morgan, who revelled in United’s defeat, posted a picture of him and Ronaldo with the caption ‘funny thing, karma’. United terminated Ronaldo’s contract in November after his explosive interview with Morgan. In a string of posts, Morgan posted a picture of Ronaldo and his no.7 shirt before uploading a picture of the Portuguese star and Sir Alex Ferguson, with words from the five-time Ballon d’Or winner about the legendary former boss.
Up until Sunday, things could not have gone better for Ten Hag as he seemingly turned around United’s fortunes. The manager revealed his unhappiness in a frank team talk and the 7-0 defeat will be seen as a mere set-back. However, Morgan cheekily asked on Monday morning: “Has Ten Hag resigned yet? How can any Manchester United manager survive a performance & result that catastrophically dreadful?”
Ronaldo put pen-to-paper on a £173million-a-year deal with Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr in December after leaving United. Since his arrival at the club, the Portugal international has netted eight times in seven appearances. In doing so, he has earned the Saudi League’s player of the month award with eight goals in four games.
The defeat against Liverpool was a huge blow to Manchester United, who were expected to put up a strong fight against their rivals. However, they were completely outplayed by Liverpool, who dominated from start to finish. The result was a shock to many fans and pundits alike, who had expected a much closer game.
Despite the loss, United remain one of the strongest teams in the Premier League and will be looking to bounce back in their next game. The team has some of the best players in the world, including Ronaldo, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest footballers of all time.
It remains to be seen how United will respond to their defeat against Liverpool. The team will need to regroup and come back stronger if they are to challenge for the Premier League title this season. With Ronaldo leading the line, United will always be a threat going forward, but they will need to tighten up defensively if they are to compete with the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.
Overall, the defeat against Liverpool was a wake-up call for Manchester United, who will need to improve if they are to achieve their goals this season. The team has the talent and potential to be one of the best in the world, but they will need to work hard and stay focused if they are to succeed. With Ronaldo leading the way, anything is possible for this talented group of players.
