Zapping Goal! Football club Cristiano Ronaldo: his record against Portuguese clubs in the Champions League
Last Saturday, Cristiano Ronaldo led the game from start to finish against Everton (1-1). On the bench at kick-off because his manager does not want him to get injured, he showed his dissatisfaction, just like once on the pitch, from the 57th, and at the final whistle, when he is returned to the locker room, moaning. For his former partner Gary Neville, now a consultant for Sky Sports, this attitude is necessarily harmful for his team since it puts unwelcome pressure on the already highly contested Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
“I saw him come in and I can’t say I liked it,” said the former defenseman. Is Cristiano upset when he’s not playing? Yes. Is Cristiano upset when he doesn’t score? Yes. Does Cristiano get mad when the team doesn’t win? Sure. Actions like this – and Cristiano is smart enough to know it – are going to put real pressure on the manager, more pressure than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is already under. I think this is something that needs to be managed over the next couple of months. Cristiano isn’t always going to score, he might not play every game. But I think if he goes like that, it’s going to put a lot of pressure on Solskjaer. There is no doubt that the discussions after the game were about the manager. He has this collection of players, but they don’t have that style of play, they don’t have this or that. He did not choose Ronaldo … “
🗣 “Cristiano Ronaldo is smart enough to know that will bring real pressure on the manager.”
