Manchester United head coach Ralph Rangnick commented on the victory over Tottenham (3:2) in the match of the 29th round of the championship of England.
“It was a top performance from both Criscitano Ronaldo and the rest of the team.
I didn’t expect a hat-trick from him, but I expected him to score. That’s why I decided to put him on the field. He looked very good in training, so I decided to release him from the first minutes, and not leave him in the reserve.
Ronaldo showed today that he still has the qualities to play for a club like Manchester United, Rangnick told Sky Sports.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored the 59th hat-trick of his career. He scored 49 hat-tricks in games at the club level, 10 more – in the Portuguese national team.
This is the first hat-trick of the Portuguese for Manchester United since returning to the club in the summer of 2021.
This is the best result among current players. Lionel Messi, representing PSG and the Argentina national team, has 55 matches with 3 or more goals scored.
