Cristiano Ronaldo has told Man Utd owners the Glazers his stance on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
Cristiano Ronaldo has b’een a shining light for Manchester United under Ole Gun’nar Solskjaer this sea’son.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s pri’vate stance on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Manchester United manager isn’t kn’own. However, his public 1 is. And, a’s the Norwegian fights to sav’e his job, the Portugal internati’onal has already made it clea’r to the Glazers his former team-mate needs time to get the bes’t from his players at Old Traf’ford.
United’s season start’ed so brightly, with the club win’ning three of their first 4 m’atches against Leeds, Wolves and ‘Newca’stle respectively.
But, ever since a 2-1 Cha’mpions League defeat to You’ng Boys in Switzerland, the ‘ Devils have come undone.
United are curre’ntly on a run of six defeats fr’om their last 12 matches acr’oss all competitions, leading to scru’tiny over Solskjaer’s position in the pro’cess.
Ronaldo has bee’n a positive throughout tha’t run, with the Portugal interna’tional netting nine times since retu’rning.
Yet the brutal fa’ct of the matter is that United are no’where near where they shoul’d be.
Ronaldo’s private tho’ughts on Solskjaer aren’t curr’ently known, even if it did emer’ge he feels standards at the cl’ub have slipped.
It’s also been report’ed the Portugal international has told his team-mates to main’tain their intensity regardless of the spec’ulation surrounding the clu’b at present.
However, speaki’ng last month, the veteran did ma’ke it clear he feels Solskjaer nee’ds time to get the best from his squad – in com’ments that could be behind the Glazers’ current relucta’nce to wield the axe.
“We are in a mo’ment in my opinion that Ma’nchester (United) do a few chan’ges; they buy me, they buy (Raphael) Vara’ne and (Jadon) Sancho,” he said.
“The adaptati’on will take time, even the syst’em of the game that we play, but I thi’nk step by step we have to put it in our mi’nd that everything is pos’sible.
