“He doesn’t pass to Ronaldo”, Man United senior players reveal the youngster that won’t give CR7 the ball
Some Manchester United senior players have revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo is ‘conspicuously’ irritated with youngster Mason Greenwood.
They confirmed that both players don’t pass to each other whenever they are paired upfront in the Red Devils line-up.
This came out after their historic 5-0 defeat to Liverpool at Old Trafford a few days ago according to Metro UK quoting ESPN.
Manchester United players aware Cristiano Ronaldo is ‘irritated’ by Mason Greenwood.
The same set of players are also frustrated with Ole Gunnar Solakjser’s failure to get the best out of his attackers after slipping to seventh on the EPL table.
United have lost five of their last nine English top-flight games so far this campaign – meaning their title contention may gradually be slipping off their hands.
The publication added that the members of the squad are openly questioning Solskjaer’s position at the club due to his inability to manage both Ronaldo and Greenwood.
It is also believed that United players are not happy with the lack of lack of tactical direction from Solskjaer and feel there is a ‘favouritism’ towards members of the squad who are underperforming.
Ronaldo has now gone four Premier League games without scoring a goal – his longest run in the league since he was with Real Madrid in 2015..
