“Ten Hag I believe if he wants Ronaldo to play, he’s going to need to get it across to him that’s the job: ‘I don’t want you racing around, but make sure that we make the opposition predictable’,” Robson told ESPN.
“You don’t need to be over-enthusiastic along with your pressing to be an excellent player to dam things off, when you say to him ‘Whenever you go to the right-sided centre-half, make sure that it doesn’t go to the left, so stand in the way in which, now we all know where the ball goes to go’.
“That’s what he has to do, he needs to be clever in his closing down. You don’t need to run 100mph and shut people right down to be an excellent presser of the ball, you’ve gotten to stop it going into the areas to go past people.”
