The interview granted by Cristiano Ronaldo (36) to Skysports made a lot of noise. As a reminder, the Portuguese Manchester United put a lot of pressure on his partners. Clearly, the Red Devils do not have the level of their competitors and the former Juventus player has not returned to Old Trafford to play supporting roles in the Premier League.
“I do not accept that we do not think we are in the top three in the Premier League. (…) I don’t want to be here to be in sixth, seventh or fifth place. I’m here to try to win, to be competitive. I think we are in the race, but we are not yet at our best. “
CR7 is not listened to
How will the Mancunian locker room react to these comments? Not necessarily good if we are to believe the feedback from various English tabloids. the Sun explains for example that some of the players are “terrified” by CR7. Concretely, these elements are very intimidated by the Lusitanien, in particular on the ground where they would play with the handbrake, for fear of making a mistake.
Finally, the Daily Mail indicates that CR7 himself fears his interview will not be taken seriously. The five-time Ballon d’Or has big doubts about the attitude of his teammates and fears being ignored, especially by young people. After the episode “Ronaldo makes his law in the canteen of MU”, the media adds that the episode “Ronaldo is surprised not to see his partners work more indoors after training” has also been released. Beautiful atmosphere in Carrington!
