Cristiano Ronaldo is doing much more than goals since joining Manchester United. In addition to deciding momentous matches, such as Wednesday’s against Atalanta, the Portuguese is covering the shortcomings of a team that is losing Solskjaer. Asked at a press conference if the players were with him, the coach, visibly angry despite the agonizing victory, asked for respect for them: “They are Manchester United players and they know they are the luckiest men in the world for it.” Of course, the Norwegian coach is aware that the latest results – three wins, one draw and four losses in the last eight games – are not good. For this reason, criticisms that have begun to question CR7’s defensive commitment to the team were not taken well at a press conference. “Cristiano is great in front of the goal. If someone wants to criticize him for his effort and his ability to work, they should watch this game. They should see how it has worked. “

He, for his part, has preferred to focus on defending the team on social networks, where he has been exultant about a new comeback consummated in the last breath: “Yes! The Theater of Dreams is on fire! We are alive! We are Manchester United and we never give up! This is Old Trafford! “. The victory, even so, has concealed but did not cover the failures of the team, something that has not gone unnoticed by some ex-footballers such as Peter Crouch or Rio Ferdinand. “If Pep and Klopp were in charge of this team, I think the four forwards would work much harder, in no way would they get away with it. I don’t think Ole is going to anger his players, ”said the forward.

Ferdinand, for his part, tried to be a little more optimistic: “Nobody can tell the public that the problems are solved and that everything is fine and it is rosy, because it is not like that. But you have to stick with a result like this. The emotion you have, you have to carry it forward to lift the spirit of the dressing room ”.
