"I think it’s okay that Ronaldo’s on the touchline and Ole’s going to have to accept it. If he brings him to his football club you’ve got to know what you’re bringing in.

"It’s a completely different Ronaldo to the one who was at Old Trafford the first time around. He knows how he’s needed and if he feels like he needs to stand next to the manager and give instructions then you’ve got to let him do that," the former Blackburn Rovers star noted."

"I’m not sure he’d be doing that with Jose Mourinho mind you, it would be very different with him still in charge," the 52-year-old said. "But you’d also have to ask Ronaldo why he feels it’s necessary to stand up and give some instruction in the first place."

"We’ve seen him do it on the international stage, most recently at the Euros, barking out orders. That boy will be a manager 100%. I would have a bet on him being Manchester United manager in 18 months."

Sherwood elaborated: "Whenever Ronaldo finishes playing I think he will become a manager, it will be an automatic choice.

"If they win the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, any of those trophies, then Solskjaer keeps his job, but if they don’t win anything I think they’ve got a manager there in the making."

"He could bring an experienced coach in there with him – someone like Carlos Queiroz [former assistant at United]– as he’ll know plenty of them, and I can see him being a manager at Man United in the future," he reiterated.

"He’s almost coaching now; you saw it at the weekend during the warm-up whispering in [Raphael] Varane’s and [Harry] Maguire’s ears, but I don’t think it’s that he needs the captain’s armband to be a leader, he leads by example anyway.

"He did when he was at United the first time it’s just now he’s being more vocal with it."
