Manchester United’s caretaker manager Michael Carrick was not surprised Cristiano Ronaldo delivered again in their 2-0 win over Villarreal in the Champions League on Tuesday. Watch the post-match conference here.
Ronaldo’s chipped finish gave his team the lead in the 78th minute at the Ceramica before Jadon Sancho added a second late on to secure United’s place in the last 16.
“It’s what he does,” said Carrick about Ronaldo. “In the big games, the big moments, when you need a goal or that something, he’s there to deliver.
“He has that cold, calculated mentality to stay calm. He doesn’t snatch at chances. I’m delighted to have him and not surprised at all he managed to come up with a goal for us.”
