Cristiano Ronaldo is “going to change everything” at Old Trafford !
Former Manche’ster United goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszc’zak believes Cristiano Ronaldo is going to have a “massive” impa’ct at Old Trafford.
What’s’ the latest news inv’olving Cristiano Ronaldo?
United re-sign’ed Ronaldo on summer Dead”line Day in a deal worth an init’ial £12.86m, and it’s safe to say the Portu’guese legend has enjoyed a blistering start to life back at his form’er club.
Ronaldo has foun’d the net in all three of his appear”ances for the Red Devils so far this season, including a brace against Newcastle on h’is ‘second United debut.
Perhaps that shouldn’t be surprising considering Ronaldo is one of the greatest play’ers of all time, but former Unit’ed team-mate Kuszczak believes the 36-year-old’s goalsc’oring exploits are just the tip of the iceberg.
Kuszczak has sugg’ested that Ronaldo will prove to be a game-changing signi’ng for Un’ited, helpin’g lift them back towards the club’s glory days under Sir Alex Ferguson.
Kuszczak, spea’king on behalf of 888sport, said: “This was a massive statement becau’se this is what Man United h’as needed for a long time, some’body who can lift the club from the average time it’s had since Sir Alex Fergu’son left because being honest, the last couple of years, Man’ Uni’ted have been disapp’ointing.
“The fans haven’t been hap’py and with players coming and going, different coa’ches, th’ey couldn’t find a rhythm’. But now they’ve signed Cristia’no Rona’ldo, who is the best player in the world, in my eyes – obviousl’y I had ‘a chance to play with him.
“But what Cristia’no brings to the club is the fact ‘he has always been the best no matter which league he is playing in. No matter whether it’s for Man Utd in the Premier League, Real Mad’rid in La Liga, or Juventus in Seria” A, he comes in and makes a massive impact, and becomes the main guy. Cristiano is the player who’s going to change everything. And even after the first game against Newc’astle, he’s had a massive imp’act. We could already see the differ ence in the fans, the team, the w ay they play. It’s massive.”
Re-signing Ronal do comes with two obvious adva ntages. The first is that his profile alone creates a natural buzz arou nd whatever team he’s playi ng for. That will improve morale both within the dressing room a nd amongst the fans.
The second adva ntage is the fact he posses ses mat ch-winning quality. Four goals in three games speaks for itself, and United lacked a reliable goalscorer up front last season with Bruno Fernandes going on to top the club’s netting charts in the Prem’ier League.
Nonetheless, Ronaldo needs others to pull their weight, and Unit’ed’s last two games have sho’wn that.
The Red Devils ende”d up losing to Young Boys in midw’eek after the former Real Madrid’ and Juventus star had been subb’ed off, while Sunday’s win over West Ham required a late won’der-strike from Jesse Lingard and a penalty save from David De Gea.
It could be argue’d that R’onaldo is helping to ‘inspire a higher level of performa’nce from his team-mates, but ultimately he can’t do it all on his own.
