Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo is having a rough time with his squad, as the Portuguese star requested his departure from the squad in the transfer market last summer, then arrived late for the squad’s preparatory season, which it made him relegated in the table of the main players of the Dutch manager Erik Ten Hag’s battalion.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s latest critic was Wayne Rooney, star of Manchester United and his running colleague in the Red Devils.
“Ronaldo and Lionel Messi can be said to be the best players ever,” Rooney told TalkSport radio.
The Manchester United top scorer added: “I think the things that Ronaldo has done since the start of the season are unacceptable at Manchester United. I have seen Roy Keane defend him, and what I know is that Roy is not going to accept that at all.”
He continued: “It’s a distraction Manchester United don’t need right now, trying to rebuild, for Cristiano to just put his head down, work and be ready to play when the manager needs you.”
And he concluded: “If it does it will be an important element and if it does not it will become an unwanted distraction”.
