Rio Ferdinand hits out at critics blaming Ronaldo for United woes. He spoke about the issue on his Vibe with Five podcast saying.
“I’ve heard some talk and the only way I can explain it, is it’s blasphemy, when I heard some people talking about Ronaldo’s the reason why Man United aren’t going to be a success.
“Ronaldo turning up at Man United and yeah it’s great but he’s going to be the reason why they don’t do anything. Listen, I’ve been seeing too much of it, don’t talk like that. Please, it’s a disgrace, absolute disrespect.
“A player that’s done what he’s done in the game, a superstar at any generation, he’ll be one of the best players in any generation you can think about.
“And even again he just told people at the weekend what he’s about here […] pressure’s on he scores. To think that because he doesn’t press, because he doesn’t run as much as other people… that’s not what he’s there for.
“You play to people’s strengths sometimes, you can do that when you’ve got a superstar in your team sometimes for certain clubs.”
Despite all the criticism on him, Ronaldo still remains United’s top scorer this season – having scored 7 goals so far. He’s also scored in every single one of the Red Devils’ Champions League games and will hope to continue that trend against Atalanta on Tuesday.
