Solskjaer dares Ronaldo’s critics following United return



Ole Gunnar Solskjaer dared Cristiano Ronaldo’s critics to make their criticism of the returning Manchester United hero ‘personal’.

The Red Devils had on Friday, confirmed a deal with Juventus that will see the 36-year-old make a return to Old Trafford, 12 years after his departure to Real Madrid.

With the formalities of the transfer yet to be concluded, however, Ronaldo was unable to make his debut at Molineux where fellow summer signings, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho, made their first starts for their new club.

Although Solskjaer accepts his former teammate is different player to the tyro who ripped defences to shreds during his first spell, he is confident Ronaldo will feed on the negativity of the doubters.

‘Of course we’re excited by the whole story Cristiano has had at Manchester United,’ said Solskjaer.

‘Hopefully we can get the paperwork sorted and announce him very soon.

‘He is a winner and a great human being. The players are excited and l am excited to keep adding to this squad. He adds something completely different.

‘He [Cristiano Ronaldo] adds something completely different — hopefully Cristiano can come in and show what he has done in his career.

‘I’m sure he likes all the talk about ‘he’s too old’. Make it personal and he will show what he can do.’

Meanwhile, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted on the position Cristiano Ronaldo will play when he eventually joins.

He said ‘But there will be games where we play with two up front, three up front. I want him in the box, I want him scoring goals.

‘That’s football for you, sometimes it happens. We’ve always been watching Cristiano thinking one day he’s going to move and we’d be interested. We never thought he was going to leave Juventus this season. When he did we had to speak to him of course.

‘Everyone that cares for Man Utd wanted this to happen and everyone played a part but the biggest thing was that Cristiano wanted to come here.’

For Liverpool, they reached successive Champions League finals in 2018 and 2019 and would be eager to challenge for another this seasonn.

Danny Murphy insists Manchester City are one of the favorites as with Chelsea, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, PSG and Atletico Madrid.

Asked which teams he expects to challenge for the Champions League title, Murphy told MailSport:

“I personally think the winners will come from one of six – Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and PSG.

“Atletico are an outsider because Diego Simeone has matchwinners in Luis Suarez and Griezmann in addition to the remarkable team spirit he’s fostered.”

Why Man Utd may not win trophy



Rio Ferdinand, has said the Manchester United inexperience could stop themfrom winning the Champions League this season.

Man United manager has brought in Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane this summer, as he seeks to win his first title at Old Trafford.

However, the team have not won any silverware since the Europa League final in 2017.

Their rivals, Liverpool and Chelsea have won both the Premier League and Champions League while Manchester City have won last season’s fina, their third league title in four years under experienced coach Pep Guardiola.

“I think Man United’s not a problem, but where they’re behind the other three English teams, is the experience of winning things.

“All the other three English teams have won things, whether it be the Champions League or the Premier League. Man United have yet to do that as this group.

“That’s where they are lacking, and that’s where they’ve got to play catch up and they’ve got to do that this season. The transfer window for them has been impeccable, but that’s got to translate into trophies,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lambasted his side following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on yesterday.

Manchester United began their Champions League campaign with a shock loss to Young Boys.

The Red Devil took the lead when Cristiano Ronaldo scored his third goal since he returned to Old Trafford.

Later on, the game turned around after Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card for his challenge on Christopher Martins.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lay blames on his team following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday.

The Switzerland side eventually drew level, thanks to Moumi Ngameleu’s strike.

The match should have been a draw but Lingard tried to find David de Gea but his pass found Theoson Siebatcheu.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seriously warned his squad that they must learn from their mistakes if they are to avoid an early exit from the championship competition.

“A lack of concentration, you make a mistake and you get done. We did that last year, conceding two sloppy counter-attacks against Basaksehir and lost that game in the last seconds today.

“So we know we’ve given ourselves a more difficult task. We did last year when everyone thought we were through after two games.

“You need 10 or 12 points: win your home games and one away from home. We’ve lost the opportunity to get three points, but we’ve got two home games next and got to focus on those two,” Solskjaer said after the game.
