Following Manchester United's humiliating 4:2 defeat at the King Power Stadium yesterday, some angry fans have been blaming the former Real Madrid and Juventus star player for the club's poor performance. We all know that the game of football is all about teamwork and not individuality.
The article states reasons why some angry Manchester United fans should not blame the five-time world-best player of the year, Cristiano Ronaldo for their club defeat yesterday despite his poor stats against Brendan Rodgers Leicester City.
Cristiano Ronaldo is 36 years old, an age limit which most footballers do retire but the Portuguese international is still at top of his game despite his age and has been involved in three consecutive games both club and country without rest.
Here are Cristiano Ronaldo's stats against Leicester City in yesterday's EPL game.
1 (1) Dribble attempts (succ.)
1 Key pass
1 shot on target
6 Possession lost
Although, Cristiano Ronaldo was not at his best form in yesterday's game as he missed different goalscoring opportunities which would have helped Manchester United retains their position on the EPL table. On several occasions, the Portuguese international failed to convert goals and as well restricted some key passes from going through during the game.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should not have made Cristiano Ronaldo a lone striker in yesterday's game. We all know that Ronaldo usually starts as a winger while playing at Real Madrid and Juventus. Manchester United's midfielders (Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandez, and Nemanja Matic) were not making key passes to Cristiano Ronaldo.
Instead of blaming the 36 years old for Manchester United's poor performance against Leicester City, the blame should go to the entire squad.
