All the wonderful runs which were made by Cristiano Ronaldo were not spotted by any Manchester United player. Even when Ronaldo's runs were spotted by his teammates, the balls did not arrive early enough for Ronaldo to utilize them properly.
Ronaldo must be concerned about his teammate's slow buildup which limits the number of chances he gets in most games. Ronaldo would love it more if Manchester United's players can be a little quicker in the movement of the ball.

It is very sad to see Ronaldo in a football match without him getting enough chances to score goals simply because his teammates decided to be sluggish in their build-up. During the match between Manchester United and Villarreal, Villarreal created enough chances to score goals but they missed most of it.
Villarreal got so many chances not because they can play better than Manchester United, but because they moved the ball quicker than Manchester United did. Villarreal players knew exactly what they wanted to do and they wasted no time in executing their plan.

Manchester United players were interested in playing perfect football but they failed to understand that wanting to play a perfect football means that the team can't play the ball quickly enough to enable them to create better chances.
Christian Ronaldo should be angry with his teammates because they are too slow. Ronaldo is an agile player who is always on the move. If the likes of Pogba, Sancho, and Fernandes can be quicker, Ronaldo will score so many goals for Manchester United in this 2021/22 season.
