Football News: Manchester United unexpectedly repatriated Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus in the 2021 summer transfer window. Six months on, Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 14 goals for Manchester United in all competitions.
That number makes Ronaldo lead the list of temporary goalscorers for the Red Devils in the 2021-2022 season. However, CR7 is believed to still have not had a significant impact on Man United in his second period at Old Trafford.
In fact, former Man United player, Kleberson, considered that Ronaldo ‘s comeback to Old Trafford was a failed product. Klebersonleberson said that the Red Devils should not rush to re-sign Ronaldo.
“To be honest, Ronaldo’s experiment so far has been a bit of a failure, mainly because of the level of his players and how he’s been influencing the team lately,” Kleberson said, quoted by diggingsports from the Daily Star.
Kleberson on Cristiano Ronaldo
“When you look at the things he can bring to the club and what he gives the fans, it’s not extraordinary. Man United haven’t been playing well lately. It’s a difficult time for Ronaldo to return to the club. He and Man United have a great history together.”
“Players like Ronaldo return to the club after a long time and it’s a completely different style of play and atmosphere to what they remember before.”
“This club is not the same as under Sir Alex Ferguson and it must have been difficult for him to understand that.”
Kleberson was Ronaldo’s contemporaries when he first arrived at Old Trafford in 2013. At that time, Kleberson and Ronaldo were brought in simultaneously by Sir Alex Ferguson as Man United’s new recruits. Unlike Ronaldo, who had success at Man United, Kleberson had bad luck due to injury.
After spending two seasons at Old Trafford, Kleberson finally left Man United for Turkish club Besiktas. In 2016, Kleberson decided to hang up his boots.
