Cristiano Ronaldo: Is The Portugal Legend Helping Or Hindering Manchester United

Posted by

Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United this summer sparked a lot of excitement among fans, and he has already scored a few key goals, but is the team better off without him?

The prodigal son, now 36, returned from Juventus this summer in one of the Premier League’s most high-profile signings, just days after it appeared he was about to join rivals Manchester City.

However, despite scoring four goals in his first three games, he has only scored two in his following six – both against Villarreal and Atalanta, and both were late Champions League winners.

United’s style of play has changed to accommodate the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under immense pressure, with his team seeming further away from the top than ever following a 5-0 home defeat by Liverpool.

Teammate from the past Former Liverpool and Scotland captain Graeme Souness does not believe he should be an automatic starter at United, while Leonardo Bonucci believes Juventus would be a better club without him.
