“He has played in all sorts of teams over the years, Cristiano, and has succeeded in playing in many different ways, and consistently scoring goals for every team he has played for.

“So I’m sure he’ll keep scoring. I have no doubts about that.”

“I went in to talk to the team in the first half and he warmed up 10 minutes before he was ready to come on in the second half. I think it is possible to create a lot of things and turn it into a negative but behind the scenes the reality is very different.”

Ronaldo came on in the 64th minute at Stamford Bridge in place of goalscorer Jadon Sancho but went straight down the tunnel in a 1-1 draw.

Rangnick will be in the stands for the game against Arsenal after being given a tour of Old Trafford by Director of Football John Murtough on Wednesday.
