After the home team shortened the score to 1-3 in the 73rd minute thanks to substitute Hannibal Mejbri, chants of “Viva Ronaldo” began in the stands at Old Trafford.

This is the slogan Man Utd fans used to express their support for the player who twice played for the club in the period 2003-2009 and 2021-2022. The chant then spread strongly and overwhelmed a corner of the stands.Ronaldo was forced to leave Man Utd to move to Al Nasr in January. Before that, the 38-year-old striker shocked everyone when he conducted an interview with MC Piers Morgan. There, he accused Man Utd of betrayal and admitted not respecting Erik ten Hag, while also revealing secrets related to the club, including stagnation in facilities and operations.

When Ronaldo first left, Man Utd showed signs of revival under the direction of Ten Hag. They won the League Cup and reached the top 4 of the Premier League. However, after the first five rounds of this season, the “Red Devils” lost three, to Tottenham, Arsenal and Brighton. The fact that Man Utd fans called Ronaldo’s name shows that they no longer support Ten Hag like when the conflict broke out between the two.

“Suddenly recalling the situation where Ronaldo single-handedly defeated this super team Brighton,” a fan wrote. Another commented: “Ronaldo shows who is the boss.”

MC Piers Morgan also joined in: “Witnessing Man Utd’s weak defeat at home against Brighton, does anyone still doubt that Ronaldo was 100% right about the club and Ten Hag? They got worse and worse after Ronaldo left. “.

Yesterday, Man Utd entered the game strongly, created many opportunities but wasted them, only to be conceded by former player Danny Welbeck in the 20th minute. At the beginning of the second half, they lost two more goals thanks to goals from Pascal Gross and Joao Pedro. . Young midfielder Hannibal pulled one goal back, but that was not enough to ease the pain of the home fans.

Many Man Utd fans left after the home team lost the third goal. Previously, many people were unhappy because coach Ten Hag withdrew rookie Rasmus Hojlund from the field to make room for Anthony Martial – who has only scored two goals in the last 15 matches.
