Cristiano Ronaldo sends message to Manchester United ahead of Atalanta

Cristiano Ronaldo has sent a message to Manchester United ahead of their meeting with Atalanta on Wednesday.

Manchester United vs Atalanta

The Red Devils are back in Champions League action on Wednesday evening and are set to face off with Serie A outfit, Atalanta.

Man United head into the tie in in a poor run of form, which has seen them win just two of their last seven games across all competitions.

In the Champions League, United did scrape past Villarreal in their last outing thanks to a late strike from Cristiano Ronaldo.

But before that, the Manchester outfit would fall to a shock 2-1 defeat at the hands of Young Boys.

This means that, heading into Wednesday’s game, Man United are sat 3rd in Group F. And with Atalanta currently top of the group with four points, if United lose, their hopes of finishing in top spot will be all but over barring a major turnaround in the final three games.
