Former Nigeria striker, Victor Ikpeba, has claimed Manchester United re-signing Cristiano Ronaldo was a mistake.
Ronaldo returned to Old Trafford at the start of the season from Juventus.
The 37-year-old netted 22 goals for the Red Devils in all competitions, but Manchester United are out of the race to win any silverware this season and are struggling to finish in the Champions League places.
Current Ajax boss Erik ten Hag has been appointed as the new manager for the Manchester club and Ikpeba believes Ronaldo should be on his way out come next season.
“I think he should be leaving the club. Ronaldo coming back to Manchester United was a mistake,” the 48-year-old said on SuperSport’s Monday Night Football.
“It is not a question of him scoring goals, so many things happen when a star player returns to his original club.
“In many ways, Ronaldo has been a distraction. He’s a global star in football, he shouldn’t have come back at that age, he should have gone to Manchester City.
“Egocentric players, jealousy comes to play in the dressing room. The atmosphere has been nasty right from the beginning.”
