EPL: Ronaldo will be Man Utd’s downfall, drop him – Agbonlahor advises Solskjaer

Former Aston Villa striker, Gabby Agbonlahor, has insisted that Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, will be the club’s downfall this season.

Agbonlahor wants Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Ronaldo from his squad and instead use the likes of Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Jadon Sancho in his attack line.

He stated this ahead of Man United’s home Premier League clash with Liverpool on Sunday evening.

According to him, Ronaldo doesn’t fit the way Man United play, adding that he was supposed to join Manchester City.

Asked whether Ronaldo improves Man United as a team, Agbonlahor told Football Insider: “I don’t think he does.

“People got carried away. Ronaldo was awful for Juventus last season. This season for Man United, he has not scored many great goals.

“The one against Newcastle was the goalkeeper’s fault, it went through his legs. The Villarreal one wasn’t anything special.

“If you look at Man United, if I am a Man United fan I want to see Greenwood down the middle, I want Rashford on the left and I want Sancho on the right, he is better on the right. That is my front three. Behind them, I want Pogba, Fernandes and Fred or McTominay.

“Ronaldo doesn’t fit into the way that Manchester United wants to play. The problem is, because of his profile and how good of a player he was, everyone feels like they have got to pass to him. They feel they have got to make a goal for Ronaldo.

“He is going to be the downfall of Man United, for me. It was a signing that was done for the fans and to stop him from going to Man City.

“Let us not be fooled, Ronaldo would have gone to Manchester City, 1000 per cent, he had probably already spoken to Manchester City.”
