Premier League

Should Ronaldo become Man Utd's new penalty taker after Bruno's miss?

Manchester United has a reputation for being one of the biggest and most successful clubs in the world and has millions of supporters from different geographical regions of the globe.

The match week-6 fixtures of the premier league saw Manchester United host Aston Villa at Old Trafford and the clash ended in a 0-1 loss for The Red Devils which was the club's first EPL defeat of the season.

Aston Villa's English defender Hause was the player that scored an 88th-minute header for the visitors from a brilliant set-piece taken by Douglas Luiz.

After conceding a goal Manchester United's attacking pressure increased against Villa and Hause was forced to make a handball offense inside the box from a cross made by Bruno.

Since the season Bruno arrived at Old Trafford, the Portuguese attacking midfielder has always been the player assigned to take Manchester United's penalties.

But after Cristiano Ronaldo's return to Old Trafford, there was a lot of speculations about who would be Man United's new penalty taker since the role was assigned to the 36-year-old forward in the previous clubs he has played for and Portugal's national football team.

Though Bruno Fernandes has an excellent penalty record for Man United, I think Ronaldo should have played the penalty instead of Bruno.

Cristiano Ronaldo is more experienced than the attacking midfielder and also does better under pressure. The Portuguese forward has in the past successfully taken a lot of decisive penalties for the previous clubs he has played for and his country's national football team.

Man United's penalty against Aston Villa was a decisive one that could have helped them get a point out of the game and there's a good chance that Ronaldo would have scored the goal and saved the day just like we've seen him do on multiple occasions.

I feel Cristiano Ronaldo should be the player assigned to take Man United's penalties from now on.
