Cristiano Ronaldo approves Manchester United star quality after Sheriff win

Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo has approved Diogo Dalot’s quality after the defender impressed against Sheriff Tiraspol.

Man United secured a much-needed win over Sheriff on Thursday night to ensure their chances of qualifying into the knockout stage of the Europa League remain in their hands.

Jadon Sancho opened the scoring in style early in the first half and Cristiano Ronaldo scored from the penalty spot after Dalot was fouled inside the penalty area.

The Portuguese defender was impressive throughout the game and created some decent chances, including the early chance he created for Bruno Fernandes, whose shot from inside the penalty area was well saved by the goalkeeper.

After the game, Ronaldo took to Instagram to laud his compatriot’s performance against the Moldovan champions.

He said: “Jogas muito miudo @diogodalot.”

In English translation: “You play too much kid.”

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag was pleased with Cristiano Ronaldo’s performance against Sheriff.

“He’s [Cristiano Ronaldo] really close, when he gets more fitness he’ll score more,” said Ten Hag. “He’s totally committed to this project, totally involved, he also has connections that are coming around him and is constructing connections. I’m happy with that.”
