Cristiano Ronaldo “is the reason” world class PL manager is not at Man United, claims journalist

Posted by

Manchester United fans might well be divided by Cristiano Ronaldo’s signing this season.

On the one hand, the Portuguese has scored some incredibly important goals, and on the other, it appears he has become an increasingly divisive presence behind the scenes.

Not to mention that his place in the side has stunted the growth of others within the squad.

A late summer signing, the Red Devils already appeared to have the make up of their side and patterns of play locked down, before Ronaldo arrived.

Jadon Sancho didn’t really get a look in for some while as the veteran seemed to have taken his position in the squad, and that meant no room in other areas of the pitch for the likes of Jesse Lingard and Donny van de Beek.

The latest stories emerging, including from Mirror, is that he is trying to wrestle the captaincy from current incumbent, Harry Maguire.

With all of that in mind, a tweet from broadcaster, Richard Keys, is an interesting one.

Keys has suggested that current Tottenham Hotspur manager, Antonio Conte, isn’t at Man United because of Ronaldo.

That’s some claim, with Keys also noting that if the Portuguese were to leave the club this summer, that the Italian shouldn’t be ruled out of taking over at Old Trafford.

That precise scenario isn’t likely to go down well with the powers that be in North London, but they can’t say they had no idea that Conte would demand winners both on and off the White Hart Lane pitch.

If Spurs can’t match their manager’s ambitions, which would say more about them than him, then he shouldn’t be begrudged a move north.

  1. Why is every problem with United is linked to Cristiano Ronaldo. He has been the one positive among many negatives.
    The players should also do their part in producing the goals and defend when necessary. Ronaldo is not an one-man army to play a multi-faceted role. He had been the shining light with DeGea also producing the much needed stability in keeping out the goals. Otherwise the club will be a mid-table team.

  2. Fully agree if 4 Man United was defeated & Ronaldo on the bench , they will still say , reason is Ronaldo . Pls stop blaming CR7 4 Man United issues . He is the positive motivation in Man United . Man United is a team of 11 players . CR7 is an Icon that youngsters hve 2 follow .

    1. I don’t understand why Ronaldo is giving them Nightmare always.We love C.R in MANUNITED and he remains with us .

  3. Cristiano Ronaldo is a club legend.His workrates is unbelievable.He is a winner type of player.That’s what the squad needs now and years to come.
    Conte?Who is this so called world class manager?I doubt Antonio Conte is world class.He is juz an average standard manager.Pep of Mancity,Klop of Liverpool,Pocchetino I would say a world class level manager.Stop creating havoc and blaming CR7.He is a determined player who want to win throphies.

  4. This rantings about cr7 should stop if we want to make top 4. Cr7 is not our problem, rather he has redeemed us from relegation zone. Instead of praises is blame. Why hate this legend, the game changer, the goal machine. Stop stop. Poor defenders and young players should take corrections
