    Did Man United Make A Huge Mistake Signing Ronaldo?

    As absurd as it may seem, Cristiano Ronaldo’s signing may have actually made United weaker.

    United had known how to beat the big clubs up until this season, thanks to Solskjaer’s counterattacking strategy, in which his squad sat behind the ball, compressing space in the easiest way imaginable.

    Before November, they have a run of difficult games against the other five of the ‘Big Six,’ giving Solskjaer a chance to recover, but the collapse against Leicester implies Ronaldo has made United poorer at the one thing they did best.

    Ronaldo has the lowest number of pressures of any attacker who has played three Premier League games this season, with 17, far fewer than second-bottom Romelu Lukaku’s 43.

    Ronaldo’s aversion to pressing has, predictably, spread around the group like a virus.

    The ease with which Leicester transferred from center-back to central midfield, with one vertical ball beyond Ronaldo allowing Youri Tielemans or Boubakary Soumare to pivot and gallop towards goal, was astounding.

    Carragher has been speaking about the attacker’s coming back to United. Even though he is “one of the greatest players of all time”, the pundit claims that Ronaldo may have a “negative” influence on the team:

    Manchester United needed a midfield anchor like Ndidi or Saul more than they needed another attacker. Ronaldo may have obscured this weakness, but there were still warning flags in his second United start against Newcastle.

    Now it’s all too obvious to see how United’s unorganized system was exposed by the Liverpool squad against a team of Liverpool’s level.

    Although Solskjaer has tactical weaknesses, this is a club that finished second last season despite being pounded by Liverpool.

    Ronaldo’s refusal to track back and defend is having a negative impact on the squad, and it has stolen the shine off Cavani, who had a fantastic season last year.
