Manchester United legend lists players who have suffered since Ronaldo’s arrival

Gary Neville, a Manchester United legend, has listed three players who have suffered since Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival last summer.

Ronaldo returned to Man United from Juventus in August 2021, with the expectation that he would lead United to the Premier League title in the previous season.

Man United, on the other hand, had a disastrous season, finishing sixth in the table.

Ronaldo scored 24 goals for United, but the rest of the team’s performance was noticeably lower.

Despite signing Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane, and Cristiano Ronaldo, the team that finished second in the 2020-21 season slipped four positions.

“I think at the start of the season, he created a problem straight away with (Edinson) Cavani. [He was] being pleaded to stay and lead the attack for the year, but when they signed Ronaldo, Cavani was shot then and finished.”

“It upset the dynamic in the dressing room for Bruno (Fernandes). I think Bruno looks up to him like a godfather in Portugal so it made him feel a bit inferior to what he was before.”

“It made Maguire a little bit inferior as captain just naturally – nothing from Ronaldo’s doing this. Just his presence itself on the pitch means everyone’s looking to Cristiano with Harry trying to establish himself as Manchester United captain.”
