Juventus decision proving right as Ronaldo disrupts Man United’s ‘familiar pattern’

October 3, 2021 - 11:02 am

Juventus allowed Cristiano Ronaldo to leave this summer, with many claiming that he had become a hindrance to our side, and he is now facing criticism with Man United.

The Red Devils have been struggling for form of late, failing to win any of their last three domestic matches, whilst scraping past Villarreal in the Champions League group clash in midweek also.

Ronaldo is now claimed to have caused ‘miscommunication’ for his side, with Danny Blind claiming that he has no intention of winning the ball back, simply waiting for his team-mates to do the dirty work for him to score the goals.

“Ronaldo doesn’t really need to play an active role,” Dann Blind told Sportnieuws(via the Express).

“Like ‘take your time’. You also see the other players looking at you like, ‘how are we going to solve it then?’

“Normally, the striker runs from one central defender to the other. This caused a lot of miscommunication.

“Now, they are not playing in their familiar pattern. When the ball was deflected [against Villarreal], you saw Paul Pogba coaching that they had to put all the pressure on.

“Ronaldo did not do that; he is not like that. He only thinks about goals and hopes others will conquer the ball.”

While the Portuguese’s ability to score goals was never in question, those watching Juventus last season could see what Danny Blind has noticed on too many occasions, with the team focused on what they can do for Ronaldo, and not what he can do for them.

The team ethic is returning for us in Turin, but it appears that the issues for the Red Devils are starting to emerge already.

    Yes, it has been obvious from the start, Ronaldo plays for himself & if you’re not a Galatico squad with players like Ballon d’Or winner Modric to carry Ronaldo it’s difficult for the team to obtain succes.

    we`ve been saying this for two seasons. goal difference plummeted , he cost us the tenth scudetto, and he became lazy and negative with body language that spreads. at least he isn`t finessing united as much as he finessed us, little punk! he won at Real because they could win games without him at their peak so going missing didn`t matter. now he`s under a microscope, you will see his true worth on the field and the tam will suffer for him. Pogba will leave soon enough. as i always said, having ronno in the team was like playing with ten players instead of eleven.

    SEE??? that’s why i hate those zealot penaldo worshipers who can’t see football in the nutshell.
    penaldo effects is VERY BAD in juve.
    we turned into the club that servicing for penaldo goal records not playing for our glory and win.
    yet people still kept licking the news that we are failed just because one big selfish megalomaniac ego gone. it’s a benefits! and huge advantages without him on our shirt.
    what do i remember about penaldo seasons on juve? his penalties and freekick to the wall.
    basically juve thrown away hundreds of uero to buy hypes to satisfied zealot and media social followers which won’t give juve anythint but painful addicted into empty dreams.

    Lol there was probably only one moment where he didn’t chase the ball in all other instances he is trying to take the ball and also clearing balls and defending. Juve just crazy that they can’t replace the GOAT. After all he is done for Juve this is what he gets. Also a quick reminder that not for cr7 Juve would be playing Europa League. (His goal against udinese)
