Ronaldo's Problem With Greenwood?

Reports in Europe suggest that Manchester United players are concerned about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's inability to solve an apparent problem between Cristiano Ronaldo and Mason Greenwood.

Ronaldo Breaks Silence After Damaging Liverpool Loss

According to ESPN, the Red Devils camp is beginning to show signs of unhappiness and did so even before the team's humiliating 5-0 defeat to Liverpool this past Sunday.

It is claimed that among the players' biggest concerns is Solskjaer's incapability of handling the strange relationship between his forwards, particularly Ronaldo and Greenwood.

The report suggested that a few first-team players have noticed how little the ball is exchanged between the two players, with Ronaldo mainly featuring down the middle and Greenwood on the right.

This is seemingly something that is bothering Ronaldo, a five-time Ballon d'Or winner, as Greenwood tends to pull the trigger towards goal instead of looking to pass to his senior teammate when he is in and around the box.

Ronaldo was left frustrated against Liverpool this past weekend as Jurgen Klopp's side put five goals past United at Old Trafford before the hour mark, a rout that included an emphatic Mohamed Salah hat-trick.

The ex-Real Madrid and Juventus forward, however, has come in for criticism himself in recent weeks since returning to the 20-time English champions due to a perceived lack of work off the ball.

He has been accused of causing an imbalance to the team, with other players perhaps feeling the knock-on effects of his arrival by being moved around into different positions or being taken out of the side, such as Paul Pogba.

The Frenchman has seemingly lost his place in Solskjaer's strongest XI, despite the midfielder recording five assists in his first two matches of the 2021/22 campaign. Since Ronaldo's arrival, he has set up just two goals in 10 games.

Man Utd's Next Manager Identified?

Jadon Sancho has also played far less than he might have expected after his big-money move from Borussia Dortmund, while opportunities have been rare for the likes of Donny van de Beek and Jesse Lingard.
