Because Curtis Jones was kicked, Virgil van Dijk attacked Cristiano Ronaldo

The incident occurred during the injury time of the Manchester United vs Liverpool match which is the continuation of the ninth week of the 2021-2022 Premier League, Sunday 24 October 202. At that time, Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk attacked Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United) by crashing himself into CR7’s body – Cristiano Ronaldo’s nickname.

As a result, Cristiano Ronaldo bounced and was immediately protected by his teammate, Bruno Fernandes. At that time, Bruno Fernandes immediately pushed Virgil van Dijk who looked annoyed at Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, Bruno Fernandes was also a victim in this commotion. Shortly after pushing Virgil van Dijk, the Portuguese midfielder also bounced because he was pushed by Liverpool defender Ibrahima Konate.

If only the players from the two teams did not intervene, Virgil van Dijk and Cristiano Ronaldo could potentially have a fistfight. So, what makes Virgil van Dijk angry with Cristiano Ronaldo?

Initially because of the unpleasant actions that Cristiano Ronaldo did to Liverpool midfielder, Curtis Jones. In the first half injury time, Cristiano Ronaldo dueled with Curtis Jones.

In the duel, Curtis Jones, who was in control of the ball, fell because his leg was violated by Cristiano Ronaldo. When Curtis Jones fell, the round skin was stuck between the thigh and stomach of the English midfielder.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo actually kicked the ball that was stuck in the thigh of Curtis Jones. As a result of this action, Cristiano Ronaldo was sentenced to a yellow card by the referee in charge, Anthony Taylor.

Manchester United itself became the butt of Liverpool in the match which was held at the Old Trafford Stadium. Because, Manchester United fell 0-5 to Liverpool.

Liverpool’s goals were scored via Mohamed Salah’s hat-trick in the 38th minute, (45+4′) and (50′). Meanwhile, two other Liverpool goals were scored by Naby Keita in the fifth minute and Diogo Jota (13 ‘).

As a result of this defeat, the future of Manchester United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, is on the line. So, will Ole Gunnar Solskjaer be sacked because Manchester United haven’t won in their last four games in the 2021-2022 Premier League?
