'We Are Hearing 'Ronaldo Is Unhappy' Too Much'

A former Premier League footballer is concerned about the number of stories coming out of Manchester United suggesting that Cristiano Ronaldo is unhappy.

Although he has scored six goals in nine appearances since returning to the Red Devils, some reports in England have claimed that all is not well within the United camp amid the team's recent run of underwhelming performances.

It has been suggested that Ronaldo has been concerned by the slow build-up play from midfield, while videos following the team's 1-1 draw with Everton a few weeks ago showed the Portuguese international mumbling to himself angrily as he made his way to and down the Old Trafford tunnel.

Following the latest international break, United's 4-2 defeat to Leicester City led to more questions around the functionality of the team amid accusations that Ronaldo does little to no work off the ball for his colleagues.

Paul Robinson, a former Tottenham Hotspur and England goalkeeper, believes the supposed leaks coming from United’s camp do not paint a pretty picture for the mood at the 20-time English champions.

"It doesn't look like a happy camp," he said, according to the Daily Express.

"Stories very rarely came out of Old Trafford under Sir Alex Ferguson. It was a tight-knit dressing room and a tight-knit club.

"There would have been a lot of cross words and a lot of arguments in the dressing room and on the training field.

"But they barely ever made it out in the media. There might have been one or two stories which made it out in the end.

"There are far too many stories coming out of United now, though. We are hearing about Ronaldo not being happy and now it is Rashford. It is clear to see it is not a happy camp. Things need to be put right very quickly."
