United told Cristiano transfer not enough



Man United legend Roy Keane has stated that Cristiano Ronaldo is not enough for the Red Devils as he will not solve all the issues at Old Trafford.

Ronaldo is set to return to United after agreeing a two-year deal on Friday. The Red Devils will pay Juventus up to £20million for the 36-year-old.

The Sky Sports pundit, who played alongside Ronaldo, says United still have two major issues to resolve in midfield and in goal but admitted that the former Juventus star will make a great impact in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team.

Keane said: “He will bring a winning mentality to the dressing room. We all know he’s a fitness freak.

“His game has changed over the last few years obviously and I’ve said it before I think he’s one of the most intelligent players I’ve ever seen in my life.

“I think the way he’s adapted his game, and he’s a winner.

“He’s coming back to Man United to win stuff, make no mistake about that.

“But Man United still have the same problems with and without Ronaldo, and that is midfield and goalkeeping problems. But for Ronaldo, I think it’s great.”

He added: “The guy’s selfish, he’s greedy. Obviously we put him up there with [Lionel] Messi.

“These guys are winners, they’re born winners. They don’t want to relax.

“I see a lot of pluses but the bigger picture, I still think for Man United I still don’t think for one second that Man United all of a sudden are going to be winning the league title.”

Meanwhile, Gary Neville says United fans should expect a different type of player to when Ronaldo was last at the club.

“He’s not the player he was, he was a dynamic, running player 12 years ago when he was at Old Trafford,” Neville said

He added that “He’s now going to be a box player, he’s going to make brilliant movements in and around the box to score goals.

“But there are enough legs in that team around him to enable him to be able to stand up there and do what he does best now in this period of his career.”

Danny Murphy

Experienced legend, Danny Murphy has listed the six clubs he thinks can win the Champions League this season.

Danny Murphy predicts English clubs could be a dominant force in Europe this campaign, with Chelsea hoping to defend the title they won after beating Manchester City in last season’s champions league final.

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.

What Solskjaer said about Man Utd 2-1 defeat to Young Boys




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.
