Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo has sent a clear message to his teammates after their Premier League title hopes were dented by a 1-0 home loss to Aston Villa.
He called on Manchester United to bounce back from their defeat by Aston Villa and arrest their slide by showing their “true strength”.
The Red Devils suffered their first Premier League loss as Villa defender Kortney Hause scored a late winner at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.
Bruno Fernandes had the chance to equalize from the penalty spot in added time but fired his effort high over the bar.
Ronaldo did not register a shot on target as he failed to score in a match for the first time since he returned to United this summer.
The 36-year-old wrote on Instagram: “This is only the beginning, but in competition as strong as the Premier League, every point counts! We must react immediately, get back on our feet and show our true strength.”
