It was a video of Cristiano Ronaldo’s (now Alnasr) hat trick against Tottenham, which was posted on United’s official social media.
“In the past, Tottenham scored two goals against United, but a United player single-handedly scored a hat-trick to beat them. However, the player was perceived as a problem and was sent off,” Morgan writes. The United player Morgan is referring to is Ronaldo.
