Ronaldo warned about challenges he will face at Man Utd

Former Manchester United defender, Mikael Silvestre, has warned Cristiano Ronaldo he must learn a “difficult” lesson on his return to the club. It has been at least 12 years since Ronaldo last played for the Red Devils. During that time he has played with Real Madrid and Juventus and gone on to become one of the best players in history. However, at 36, Silvestre has urged Ronaldo not to overwork his body. “The difficulty is for Cristiano to accept that he will have to get some rest, he’s still playing for Portugal. Yes, he wants play all the time but he needs to know when to take his foot off the gas which is difficult. “I’ve been there myself and you still think you can train as hard as a 20-year-old and you can’t and the reality is you have to rest so you can peak during...

Two top stars removed from Man United’s ideal XI for this season

Silvestre warns Man United That Travelling To Anfield To Face Liverpool Was like “Going To Hell”

Mikael Silvestre has warned former club Manchester United that travelling to Anfield to face Liverpool was like "going to hell" during his playing days. Jose Mourinho's men visit Liverpool on Saturday looking to continue their fine start to the season, which has seen United win six of their opening seven Premier League games. But Silvestre, who won five league titles and a Champions League with United, has told his former club to expect a huge test against Jurgen Klopp's side. "You feel like you're going to hell. You are not welcome and you can feel the hate for sure," he told 888sport. "It's a hostile environment and it's a good occasion to see how you react in adversity. It's the best place to win games." While United are second in the table, Liverpool sit seventh following just thr...

Arsenal’s Wenger Can Sometimes Be Too Nice – Silvestre

Former Arsenal defender Mikael Silvestre has said manager Arsene Wenger can be “too nice” but remains still the right man for the job. After months of speculation about his future, Wenger signed a new two-year contract at the Emirates Stadium last month despite failing to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in two decades. Silvestre, speaking in Singapore at the launch of November’s Singapore Masters, told reporters: “Arsene’s nice — but sometimes too nice, in my opinion. “A lot of stuff has been said about whether he should stay or go, from the critics to the press to ex-players. “I think if he shows the same aggression to the players in the dressing room, he’ll be able to push them to win some trophies.” He said Wenger should be praised “for achieving many ...
