Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the most consistent footballers in football history, he spent 6 years in Manchester United, 9 years in Real Madrid, 3 years in Juventus, he is back in Manchester United and is still playing at the top level.
In a recent interview with 'The Athletic', the Italian said that working with the Portuguese lifted the spirit of the team. But, the team began to depend on him too much and in the process, they thought his presence was enough to win games.
Instead of working hard and contributing their maximum quota, he said, "We began to fall a little short in our daily work, humility, sacrifice, the desire to be up-to-date with your teammate.” They preferred to give him the ball always because they believed he was going to always win games for them.
Although he also said that the mentality changed last season as they were a team and depended less on him, the result was that they only won the Coppa Italia.
Depending on Ronaldo alone may be draining on him, but working together as a team will yield a Maximum result.
