Reasons why Manchester United should not have signed Christiano Ronaldo

No doubt Ronaldo is one of the greatest to ever grace the game of football and every team would love to have such a superstar on their squad. But gone are the days when Cristiano Ronaldo was at his best as he is now in the twilight of his career.

Here are some reasons why Manchester United united should have signed ronaldo;

1. Ronaldo now lacks the energy and atleleticism upfront unlike before, he now barely marks opponent from the front to help relieve some pressure of opponent players on his team.Which is something Cavani and Rashford are good at, but somehow Ronaldo is preferred to Cavani because he is almighty Cristiano Ronaldo

2. Ronaldo now lacks pace and strength for counter-attacks which is very important for any team if they want to be a goal treat upfront. Back in his prime, he was able to singlehandedly take on the opposition players and tear down opposition defense with ease at great pace and strength, and an attribute which he lacks.

3. Ronaldo's arrival at old trafford have somehow affected the uprising talents like Amad Diallo, Mason Greenwood, and especially Jesse Lingard as he is barely given a chance to prove himself.

4. Too much expectations on Cristiano Ronaldo which is now leading to disappointment. The influence which Ronaldo has on and off the pitch is incredible, the team are being given a huge boost of confidence with his presence expecting to win every game as players, the coach and fans often look up to the five times ballon dor winner to always make the difference on the pitch. But Ronaldo now gradually lacking the individual prowess to singlehandedly decide games as he more of a traditional centre forward and therefore can't impact much on pitch.
