    Ronaldo actions put more pressure on Ole – Gary Neville

    Ronaldo made a hasty exit down the tunnel after Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with Everton, having started on the bench; Neville: ‘He walks off the pitch, muttering to himself, which throws questions up in the air… it can only come back to the manager’

    On his podcast, Gary Neville believes that Ronaldo storming down the tunnel after Manchester United’s 2-2 draw with Everton put great pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, which will need to be managed in the coming months.

    Cristiano Ronaldo’s antics at Old Trafford, according to Gary Neville, only add to the pressure on Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

    After United were held to a 1-1 draw by Everton, for whom Andros Townsend scored, Ronaldo was filmed striding alone down the tunnel, obviously mumbling in displeasure – and then mimicking the Portuguese’s signature goal celebration.

    Solskjaer defended his team selection after starting Ronaldo on the bench, but with his team now on international break, the decision has come under scrutiny, and Ronaldo’s demeanour has just added to the scrutiny.

    In his recent podcast, former Manchester United captain Neville discussed Ronaldo’s body language and offered tips to Solskajer on how to manage the returning hero at Old Trafford.

    I watched the game and I watched him walk off. I can’t say I liked 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 walks off the pitch, muttering to himself, which throws questions up in the air. What is he saying? Who is he annoyed with? It can only come back to the manager.

    Cristiano is smart enough to know actions like that will bring real pressure on the manager – more than he is already under.

    It is what it is, but I think that is something that has to be managed in the next couple of months.

    Cristiano is not always going to score and he maybe can’t play every game. But if he’s going to walk off like that, it’s going to put immense pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.”

    Ole has restored values… but needs trophies

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he has ‘no regrets’ for starting Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench following Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with Everton at Old Trafford

    The worst that could happen for me with Ole is that he’s been an incredible bridge, from a period where the club lost its identity and it lost its way.

    There is no doubt the club lost its way in reaction to Sir Alex Ferguson’s leaving the club. Ole has returned some of the values to the club.

    There’s a group of players who I think do want to play for the club. The signings have been a lot more Manchester United-like.

    But I do now think with the signings of Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane, recognised world-class talents, comes a pressure to deliver.

    Ole knows that. He said it in his press conference. He does have to win. You have to win a trophy when you’re three or four years in and you’ve got players like that.

    He has to look after himself, Ole, he has to be selfish, he’s got to make sure that he manages Cristiano in the right way.

    I think he’ll have a word with him and say, ‘Look, if we’re going to do that, let’s do it in the changing room’.

    But Cristiano is not a sheep either. He’s not just going to follow and say, ‘I’m not going to say anything. He will demonstrate his dislikes and his lack of happiness with situations.
