Cristiano Ronaldo and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (Man United site)
Cristiano Ronaldo noted Manchester United have time to do things right in the Champions League after his equalizer in added time that saved a 2-2 draw against Atalanta on Tuesday.
One point keeps United at the top of Group F and on track for the round of 16 despite a series of rambling performances bailed out by Ronaldo’s goals.
The 36-year-old has also scored late goals at home against Villarreal and Atalanta.
“We believed until the end. I helped my team to score a point,” said Ronaldo. “We never give up, it’s a good result for us I think.”
United crashed in the group stages last season but had much higher expectations following the signings of Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane in the summer transfer window.
However, Ronaldo claimed the new signings were still in place as Varane limped with the recurrence of a groin injury and Sancho was once again left out by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
“We have to adapt to each other,” he added. “It will take time, we have time to improve and be better.”
