Man United says Ronaldo is back in training with Man United 1st team as Wan-Bissaka and Donny Van Beek are also back from injury.
Cristiano Ronaldo has returned to training with Man Utd’s first-team squad. He is in contention to play against Sheriff on Thursday.
Cristiano Ronaldo has trained with the rest of the Manchester United first-team squad for the first time since being exiled for refusing to come on as a substitute against Tottenham.
Ronaldo was dropped from the squad to face Chelsea at the weekend after he’d told Erik ten Hag he wouldn’t come on as a late substitute in the 2-0 win against Spurs on Wednesday.
The 37-year-old walked down the tunnel before full-time and left Old Trafford, with Ten Hag then telling Ronaldo he would not be considered for the weekend and ordering him to train away from the rest of the squad.
Since the 1-1 draw with Chelsea on Saturday, United’s players have had two days off so only returned to Carrington on Tuesday to begin preparations for the Europa League game against Sherrif Tiraspol, which takes place on Thursday.
Ten Hag and Ronaldo have held talks since the incident last week and the manager was happy to welcome Ronaldo back into the squad after those discussions. The forward had taken to social media last Thursday to explain his actions the previous evening, although he didn’t apologize.
Ronaldo will be available for the game against Sherrif Tiraspol on Thursday, while Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire and Donny van de Beek also returned to training.
