Ronaldo's arrival in Manchester United has increased the amount of time Solskjaer has to turn the team's fortunes around. Some critics have argued that the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo has mounted more pressure on Solskjaer to deliver in Manchester United and that Solskjaer has to deliver at all cost.

Contrary to what people believe regarding how Ronaldo's arrival and the latest Manchester United results might reduce how much time Solskjaer has to turn things around in Manchester United, Ronaldo's arrival has prolonged the time Solskjaer has to turn things around in Manchester United. Before the arrival of Ronaldo, Solskjaer preferred his team to play counter-attacking football. However, Ronaldo's arrival meant that Solskjaer had to change his pattern of play.
Ronaldo's arrival in Manchester United was not planned. It took a last-minute deal for Manchester United to complete Ronaldo's signing after Manchester City we're close to sealing a deal. The unexpected arrival of Ronaldo meant that Solskjaer had to change his already established style of play so that he can create a new one. Today in Manchester United, the entire team is trying to adapt their style so that Ronaldo will be comfortable playing in the team. The team looks like it is trying to build around Ronaldo and such transformation will take time.

Manchester United board members will give Solskjaer more time to get the team going because they will feel that reshaping the team and building it around a leader like Ronaldo will take time to achieve. Ronaldo is valuable to Manchester United, however, when a player like Ronaldo is in a team, the team must be built around him because of his pedigree and worth. Changing the ideology of Manchester United will take time before Solskjaer can get it right and the board appears to understand that Solskjaer needs time to adjust things because of Ronaldo.

Had it been that Ronaldo did not join Manchester United during the summer transfer window, Solskjaer would have been under severe pressure from the Manchester United board. Most Manchester United fans will be quick to conclude that Solskjaer should be sacked. However, when you look at the impact of Ronaldo's arrival in the team, you will understand why the board members will stick with Solskjaer as long as he manages to grind out the results when the team needs it most.
