RUMOR: Cristiano Ronaldo gets nod from Man United teammates to intervene in fixing club’s woes

Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo

A report claims Manchester United players are urging Cristiano Ronaldo to step up amid the team’s difficult situation.

Manchester United is in a very bad situation at the moment. Many have been criticizing the team’s form leading to the Liverpool game and the 0-5 defeat to the Reds certainly speaks highly of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s problems.

Prior to the Liverpool match, Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly “interrupted” Solskjaer’s team talk during halftime against Serie A side Atalanta. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner urged his Manchester United teammates to do a better job as they were down 0-2 at the time.

With Manchester United evidently dejected after the humiliating loss to Liverpool, Ronaldo’s teammates now want him to “take up a new and bigger role” in the dressing room following the said half-time intervention, Mirror reported.

The report added that Manchester United stars have come up with the said idea in the hope to “bridge the gap between the players and the coaching staff.”

Whether it is true or not that Ronaldo is being urged to take the lead is yet to be known. However, one thing certain is that Solskjaer is well aware that it is still his responsibility to help Manchester United get back to its winning ways.

“I’ve heard nothing else [on my future] and I’m still thinking about tomorrow’s work,” Solskjaer said after the Liverpool match. “Of course, we’re all low, I can’t say now that I’ve felt any worse than this, this is the worse I’ve been, the lowest I’ve been, but I accept the responsibility and that is mine today and it’s mine going forward.”
