Ronaldo scored again on Thursday night as Manchester United held Chelsea to a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford despite being thoroughly outplayed by the Blues.


The 37-year-old is the highest goalscorer for Manchester United this season, scoring 23 goals in all competitions and has netted eight of their last nine Premier League goals.



Hoddle stressed that apart from his goals, the veteran attacker was working his socks off for the team against Chelsea and was popping up everywhere to help out his team-mates.


He insisted that he is the perfect example for the rest of the Manchester United players and admitted that he cannot understand if Ronaldo can show that kind of work ethic at 37, what excuse do the others have to not work as hard as him.



Hoddle said on Premier League TV post match: “I was looking at him intently.


“He was back at the left-back area at one stage, making tackles, he cleared a free-kick from the centre of the penalty spot and he was the first one to press the Chelsea player who has got it at the halfway line.



“His attitude is there and everyone else needs to get on board because if he is going to do it, he is 37 and is a fantastic player for what he has done, everyone needs to do it.


“That’s really what should be happening at United and it’s not.”


Only Mohamed Salah has scored more Premier League this season than Ronaldo, who is on 17 for the campaign.
