Chris Armas has offered advice to manager Erik ten Hag on handling Cristiano Ronaldo.
Armas worked alongside Ronaldo, who now wishes to leave the club, after United failed to qualify for the Champions League by missing out on the top four.
He told Sky Sports: "I think the most important thing is to engage with Cristiano. He's got so much to give, again his commitment to winning and scoring.
"Each guy has their different type of leadership - he can certainly be a leader in his way and my goal like everyone else on the roster was "how can I get the best out of Cristiano?"
"So I do think that's a hands-on approach, it's speaking with him, it's bringing him into the office, it's asking him questions. So he's part of the solutions and part of the success.
