The coach also links everything to a “team” problem: “Some players let their egos come out into the open (Cr7, ed.)”
Like a bolt from the blue, Ole Gunnar Solskjær returned to Cristiano Ronaldo’s transfer from Juventus to Manchester United. The coach, for whom Cr7 has always had good words, stated to TheAthletic that it was a “wrong choice, because he still seemed strong and instead it didn’t go as I hoped…”.
THE COMMENT: The coach commented on Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United as follows. “It was an opportunity too tempting to refuse and I felt we had to take it, but in the long run it turned out to be the wrong one. He was still one of the best strikers in the world and he looked strong, the usual Cr7 in short. But then things went against us and it all started with Aston Villa at home (1-0 defeat).” Continuing, Solskjaer linked everything to a team problem: “When you have a group you need everyone to push in the same direction. When things weren’t going well, you could see some players come out with their egos (Cr7? ed.. .)”. Words that will certainly not please Cristiano who has always respected the Norwegian coach.
