Ronaldo causes a negative return of goals between club mates

Few to none of Manchester United supporters lamented the moment Cristiano Ronaldo returned to Old Trafford this summer, as Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s team sought to bridge the gap with their Manchester City rivals after the Red Devil ended the last season as runner-up behind Pep Guardiola’s Citizens.

Along with the acquisition of English star Borussia Dortmund, and former city academy prospect Jadon Sancho, Ronaldo was destined to spearhead United’s continued resurgence as the club looked to maintain its season-after-season rise in the table. of the Premier League on the right track.

On paper, the current situation seems more or less expected. United are second in the league with 13 points along with City, Chelsea, Everton and * check notes * Brighton. The return of the goals is also the place where many expect the Red Devils to reside, with 13 goals to their name only surpassed by Liverpool (15).

But the reality of the attacking situation from the minute Ronaldo made his second Old Trafford debut, a match in which he bagged a double, paints a picture that may be familiar to Juventus fans at least.

As joked @ FrenchGooner23 On Twitter, Mason Greenwood, who scored for three straight games to start the current Premier League season, has yet to score a goal since Ronaldo arrived on the scene.

Portuguese compatriot Bruno Fernandes started the season with an opening day hat-trick against Everton and also found the back of the net against Newcastle during CR7’s debut, but has yet to score since then and has only shot since penalty spot in his name. ; one that has yet to achieve atmospheric reentry.

Sancho also has to find the back of the net, and the same can be said for Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani.

Right now, the current tactical picture being painted under OGS is one that is a similar problem seen at Juventus with splashes from Portugal and Real Madrid in between; Building your focus around trying to score Ronaldo goals is not the way to get the best out of a very talented attacking unit.

The Champions League attendance record is a telling sign

There’s no denying how effective a Ronaldo scorer has become over the years, from the second half of his first spell at United and through his stints at Real Madrid and Juventus.

But with his brilliant scoring record has come dependence on others, while those same club mates can rarely look to the Portuguese for opportunities.

With only 5 assists to their name in the last three combined seasons in the Champions League, there is the possibility to suggest that United could have a difficult time spreading goals across the front line at the expense of making sure Ronaldo remains the threat. key attack.
