Ex Liverpool playmaker and defender, Jamie Carragher trusts Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United has really added to the team’s concern of being a team of individuals.
Ronaldo got back to the club from Juventus in the late spring on a two-year deal, and has since scored five awesome goals in five matches.
Cristiano Ronaldo was warming the bench as a substitute for last Saturday’s Old Trafford match and keeping in mind that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer brought him in at the 57 minutes, and even with that, Ronaldo could not effect any change.
Sir Alex Ferguson including numerous others censured the Norwegian for his choice to start Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench for Manchester United’s awful draw with Everton last weekend.
Responding to the circumstance at the Manchester United, Carragher had all this to say in an interview with the Telegraph:
”They remain a team of individuals rather than a team. Cristiano Ronaldo has added to that rather than fixed it. That’s why, despite a brilliant squad, they are not yet at the level of the other three. Dropping 5 points in their last 2 home games highlighted lingering inconsistency.
They (City) are still the team to beat. There was a question mark against them after failing to replace Sergio Aguero, but it is business as usual for Pep Guardiola.
They have gone to the two toughest venues and taken 4 points, justifying being favourites to win it again. They will take some stopping.”
