Former Arsenal Manager, Arsene Wenger seems to have identified the challenge Manchester United are having with Cristiano Ronaldo who returned to Man after stints with Real Madrid and Juventus in the Spanish and Italian leagues respectively.
The Red Devils have been poor in recent times and it reached a new height on Sunday when they lost 5-0 at home to Liverpool.
Although Arsene Wenger insists that Ronaldo’s return is not a mistake, the ex-manager claims the striker has upset the balance of the squad.
Former Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger has disclosed that 36-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo has upset the balance of Manchester United squad since his arrival,
Ronaldo has scored six goals in his first nine appearances since he re-joined the Red Devils, but United have been poor in recent times as it took a new height after they suffered a 5-0 loss to Liverpool.
Wenger said via Metro 301: “I wouldn’t say it was a mistake but certainly some emotional impact was in there because he has been a fantastic player.
“No, I believe Ronaldo can still score you the goals you need. Can he repeat every three games, very high intensity games? That’s certainly less the case today but let’s not forget he was the hero three days ago.
“When you buy a player like that, the secret is the balance of the team. To play Ronaldo, he can win you games, but you need to create the balance around him.”
