Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer answers to Sir Alex Ferguson's criticism of Ronaldo.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he's "relaxed" about Sir Alex Ferguson's recent criticism of his team choices, noting that it's not the first time the two have clashed.

During a conversation with UFC superstar Khabib Nurmagomedov, Ferguson was overheard criticizing Solskjaer, claiming that the Manchester United manager should not have rested Cristiano Ronaldo in the club's 1-1 draw with Everton.

Solskjaer, on the other hand, has shrugged off the criticism, stating that Ronaldo is a player who requires recovery from time to time in order to perform at his best.

What did Ferguson have to say about it?

"I also think that when they saw Ronaldo wasn't playing...", Ferguson says in the footage of his talk with Nurmagomedov.

Ferguson answers, "I know, but you should always start with your top players," as Nurmagomedov informs him that Ronaldo came on in the second half.

The reaction of Solskjaer

In reaction to the former Manchester United manager's criticism, Solskjaer remarked, "I'm fairly relaxed about it."

"I had a lot of disagreements with the gaffer, and I told my wife about it a lot of times, but as a player, that never made the news."

"I'm sure Sir Alex is aware that it makes no difference to me." Cristiano is someone we all want to see.

"We all want to see him because he's unusual, he's unique, he's had a career, and everyone wants to see him." But the simple fact is that he is unable to play every single game that we play; it is simply a matter of physical and human nature.

"The gaffer already knows how difficult this task is." He didn't always use the same lineup of 11 players. He took some risks by resting Ryan Giggs, Wayne Rooney, and David Beckham, three of our finest players. It worked some of the time, but not all of the time."
