The presence of Cristiano Ronaldo has undeniably helped Manchester United’s front line which looks less biting in recent seasons. However, there are reports that say that Ronaldo’s presence at Man United actually made the dressing room feel tense because many Red Devils players were intimidated by CR7’s presence.
As is known, Man United spent 15 million euros to repatriate Ronaldo from Juventus in 2021. The presence of the 31-year-old player is expected to help the Red Devils get out of adversity.
However, some Man United players were not happy with Ronaldo’s arrival, which put them under pressure. The reason is that since the presence of the Portuguese star player has created tension in the Red Devils dressing room if they fail to win.
Even according to a report by The Sun, Friday (1/14/2022), Man United players were afraid if they made a mistake in giving a pass to Ronaldo. They are afraid that the megastar will become furious.
The report further stated that Ronaldo had given a warning to Man United players to perform well. Even if it wasn’t in his favour, at least every individual was able to play well.
This situation is thought to be inseparable from the training pattern applied by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer which provides less intense and competitive training. While this is different from Ronaldo, who is the type of hard worker.
Currently, Man United is in seventh position with 31 points. Meanwhile, in the next match they will face Aston Villa on Sunday, January 16, 2022. Of course, the victory in the match will be very valuable for Man United to return to the top of the standings.
