'Ronaldo's Teammates Are Afraid Of Him!'

A football pundit has suggested that Cristiano Ronaldo's teammates at Manchester United are afraid of him, and that the Portuguese superstar's arrival Old Trafford this season has caused problems in the dressing room.

'World Richest Footballer' Finds New Club

The 36-year-old was strongly condemned recently by ex-United captain Gary Neville after he and Bruno Fernandes stormed off the field without acknowledging the travelling fans following the Red Devils' 1-1 draw with Newcastle United on Monday night.

Former Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor has now joined in on the criticism of the five-time Ballon d'Or winner, saying Ronaldo's attitude is having a negative impact on his teammates in England.

"It looks to me like Ronaldo just cares about his goals," he told Football Insider.

"That performance from Ronaldo was somebody sulking all game.

"He was throwing his hands up in the air because he wasn't getting chances. Then after the game, he runs off the pitch sulking and I imagine he's sulking in the changing room.

"His attitude was off. If I'm [Marcus] Rashford, [Mason] Greenwood and [Jadon] Sancho, I'm scared to have a shot. Every time they have a shot, he's got his arms up to say, 'Why haven't you passed to me?'

"The harmony is not right in that changing room. The form of Rashford and Greenwood has dropped since Ronaldo has been there.

"They can't express themselves, it's like they think, 'I have to pass to Ronaldo, I have to create a chance for Ronaldo'.

"Before Ronaldo came, Greenwood was taking players on and shots on, and he's not doing that anymore and getting dragged at half-time.

"If I was Rashford, Greenwood or Sancho, I'd be saying to myself, 'Oh, why did we have to bring him here?'"

Here are some images of Ronaldo appearing frustrated throughout United's clash against the Magpies:
