Cristiano Ronaldo trains with Man Utd ahead of Aston Villa clash in huge boost after missing FA Cup win with injury

MANCHESTER UNITED have been handed a huge injury boost with Cristiano Ronaldo training ahead of Saturday’s clash with Aston Villa.

The Portugal legend, 36, missed Monday’s win over Villa in the FA Cup with a hip injury.

But Ronnie looks set to lead the line in this weekend’s Premier League battle after making a recovery.

Ronaldo looked to be in good spirits on a cold day at Carrington.

But despite the freezing conditions, brave Ronnie opted to go without gloves and a hat on the training field.

In comparison, the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Martial and even boss Ralf Rangnick were warmly wrapped up.

Other players including Harry Maguire, Jadon Sancho and Fred were all smiles as they took part in various training drills in a sign that the gloom that has surrounded the club was lifting.

But fans will be hoping United can rediscover some red-hot form after a lukewarm performance this week in the Cup.

Red Devils supporters will also be keeping a close eye on the players’ body language in Saturday’s game at Villa after an extraordinary interview from Ronaldo yesterday.

He added: “I remember, when I was 18, 19, 20, some older players spoke with me."But other people, they don't accept that, if you criticise them.

"I don't say this in relation to our players, but in general. I have kids, I know.

"We are here to help and if they need my help, and my support and my advice, I will be the No1 to help.

"But if you don't want my help, do your job, look for yourself, and do your best to help the team."

Reflecting on his ambitions for United, Ronaldo added: “Manchester United belongs in important things so we have to change.

“I do not want to be here in a club to fight for sixth place or seventh place or fifth.

“I am here to try to win, to compete. I think we compete but we are not yet in our best level.

“But we have a long way to improve and I believe that if we change our mind we can achieve big things.”
