Manchester United manager Ralph Rangnik has clarified why Ronaldo did not play in the English Premier League match against Manchester City. The German coach says that Ronaldo did not play in the match that Manchester City won by four goals to one due to a hip injury.

In addition to Ronaldo, Edison Cavani, Rafael Varane and Luke Shaw also missed the match. Following this, Ranknick dropped Anthony Elanka and Jaden Sancho to the forward line, bringing Bruno Fernandez to the False Nine.”Edison Cavani has been training well for the last three days but at the end of the season the player felt unwell. Cristiano Ronaldo has had problems with his hip since Friday and has not played since.” Ranknick speaking to the media after the match

Kevin de Bruyne and Riyad Mahraz scored twice for Manchester City, while United’s consolation goal came from Jaden Sancho. With the win, Manchester City maintained their three-point lead over Liverpool and dropped to fourth, while fourth-placed Manchester United fell to fifth.
