Problem with Ralf Rangnick and his successor
Despite his heartwarming return, Cristiano Ronaldo would be unhappy at Manchester United. A lot is at stake, from the ambitions of the team to their disappointing results, and the lack of support from his teammates. However, the report claims that CR7 sees Rangnick as the main culprit.
The Portuguese ace does not assess the interim coach and he believes Rangnick is unable to get the most out of him and the team. Moreover, the veteran would think that his manager is a bad influence on young players, that he is selfish and does not respect the fans, ignoring what everyone expected of him.
Ronaldo’s main objection is that the current manager cannot bring any trophies to Old Trafford, and his eventual successor is expected to meet those demands as well. Interestingly, he is considered to have thought the same about Rafael Benitez at Real Madrid and Maurizio Sarri at Juventus.
Possible tensions with teammates
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner was brought back to fix things at Manchester United, but did the Red Devils need redress? Aston Villa legend Gabriel Agbonlahor, who won three caps for the England national team during his career, suggested United sell the 36-year-old next summer.
“You’ve seen the change in Bruno Fernandes since Ronaldo came in. Fernandes was the key man before Ronaldo came in, now Cristiano is the key man. He led the team against Wolves as captain When Harry Maguire was away before Ronaldo arrived Fernandes was captain, but now Bruno is on the bench there will be a lot of tension there.
“When you look at the whole storyline, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will see that he made a mistake bringing in Ronaldo. Yes, Ronaldo scores, but he scored goals that Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford would have scored in the same situation. I would let Ronaldo go this summer, in my opinion, in order to allow Greenwood, Jadon Sancho and Rashford to team up“said Agbonlahor in an interview with Football insider.
