Oyogist has learned that Manchester United legend, Gary Neville has Severly criticised Cristiano Ronaldo’s decision to walk off the pitch following Manchester United’s draw with Everton.
Ronaldo was substituted in the second half of the match and he wasn’t able to secure a goal which left him visibly angry.On leaving the pitch, Ronaldo muttered certain words to himself.
Neville said: ‘I watched him walk off and I can’t say I like it.’Is Cristiano upset when he doesn’t play? Yes. Is Cristiano upset when he doesn’t score? Yes. Is Cristiano annoyed as hell when the team don’t win? Of course.
‘We know those things. He doesn’t have to prove that.’He walked off the pitch muttering to himself, which throws the questions up in the air – what’s he saying? Who is he annoyed with?’It can only come back to the manager. Actions like that – and Cristiano is smart enough to know this – will bring real pressure on the manager, more pressure than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is already under.’I think that is something that just has to be managed in the next couple of months. Cristiano is not always going to score, he’s maybe not going to play every single game.
‘But I think if he walks off like that, it’s going to put immense pressure on Solskjaer. There’s no doubt the talk after the game was about the manager.’He has this collection of players but they haven’t got this style of play, they haven’t got this or that. He didn’t pick Ronaldo…
‘While acknowledging that Ronaldo has the right to express his annoyance, Neville believes Solskjaer must handle the situation sooner rather than later.
