Pundit claims Rona’ldo has ‘distorted’ the thin’king of a Man Utd star !


Former Tottenh’am boss Tim Sherwood has clai”med that the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo at Man Utd has “dist’orted” the thinking of Bru’no Fernandes.


Fernandes – who cont’ributed 18 goals and 12 assists last ca’mpaign – missed a last-gasp p’enalty as the Red Dev’ils lost 1-0 to Aston Villa on Satu’rday.


There has been discu’ssion who would take pena’lties this season after the arrival of Ro’naldo in the summer – but it was Fern’andes who stepped up after K’ortney Hause had put Villa ah’ead in the 88th-min’ute.


The miss from Ferna’ndes left Man Utd with no time to g’et back into the match and She’rwood thinks he has been impact’ed negatively by the arrival of R’onaldo.


“He threw the ball to Ro’naldo in an international g’ame and Ronaldo miss”ed one,” Sherwood said on Sky Sp’orts. “But he doesn’t miss that norm’ally.


“You’ve never, ever s’een him blast the ball over the cro’ssbar. He always waits for the goal’keeper to go down and rol’ls it in the other corner. It’s the pre’ssure now of someon’e else.


“The main man is here. 10’0% it has distorted his thin’king there. He knows he’s got 1 chance and one chance only, and I think we’ve just seen it go by.”


Solskjaer told repo’rters: “Sometimes it just doe’sn’t go your way. Bruno is such a go’od penalty taker and to’day you wo’uld have backed him with your mor’tgage I would gu’ess.


“What I didn’t like was the way they crowded th’e referee and the penalty spot and Bruno and tried to affect him. It clearly wor’ked but that’s not gre’at to see.


“Bruno has been exce’llent and Cristiano is probably’ the one who has scored the most pen’alties in world football. We’ve got great takers an’d it’s a missed opportunity for us to g’et a point.”
