Aston Villa hero, Gabriel Agbonlahor, has told Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, that he committed a sackable offence for benching Cristiano Ronaldo during the Red Devils’ Premier League 1-1 draw with Everton on Saturday.
Agbonlahor, who was clearly not happy with Solskjaer’s decision not to start Ronaldo against Everton, said the Norwegian would not win the Premier League for Man United this season.
Ronaldo had previously started all three Premier League matches since re-joining Man United from Juventus in the summer.
But Solskjaer instead opted for Edinson Cavani to lead the United attack line against Everton.
“It’s a sackable offence not to start Ronaldo in itself. Ronaldo, you have to play him, you just put yourself under so much pressure by not playing him, he has to start,” Agbonlahor told talkSPORT.
“He’s been brought in on probably £700,000 a week to play games and win leagues for Manchester United.
“He’s in that squad to win the Premier League this season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not going to win the league for Manchester United.”
