Cristiano Ronaldo wants management role at Manchester United after retirement

Cristiano Ronaldo in action for Manchester United

Cristiano Ronaldo is apparently keen on becoming a part of the Manchester United coaching staff when he retires but the club hierarchy are not considering him for such a role just yet.

According to Daily Star, the Premier League club have no plans to offer him a coaching role at Old Trafford.

The Portuguese superstar joined Manchester United earlier this summer on a two-year deal and he has been excellent for the Red Devils so far.

Despite the team struggling to perform at a high level every week, Ronaldo has managed to produce consistently and he has chipped in with vital goals in big games for Solskjaer’s side.

Meanwhile, the report from Daily Star also claims that Ronaldo is keen to oversee the progress of his son who is currently on Manchester United’s books and therefore he wants a management role at the club.

There is no doubt that the 36-year-old still has a lot to offer at the highest level and his retirement is probably still a few years away.

It will be interesting to see if Manchester United changed their stance in that time and allow Ronaldo to continue his career at the club in a different capacity.

There is no doubt that the 36-year-old is a Manchester United legend and the fans would certainly be delighted to see him involved in the club in some capacity beyond his playing career.
