Manchester United struggle

Incoming manager Ralf Rangnick was supposed to oversee significant improvement at Manchester United, but that is yet to materialise.

The Red Devils have been poor and fell to a 1-0 defeat at home to Wolves in their last League game, while two disallowed Aston Villa goal saw them scrape through with a 1-0 scoreline in the FA Cup third round.

However, there is still plenty of time to turn it around.

Ronaldo backs Rangnick to succeed

And, speaking to Sky Sports, Ronaldo was quick to show his ambition has not dimmed, revealing that he doesn’t wasn’t to be at a club that is only fighting for sixth or seventh place. Indeed, it was a fourth placed finish in Serie A that the Portuguese star deemed beneath him last season, swapping Turin for Trafford in the closing stages of the window. Ronaldo claimed:

“Manchester (United) belongs in (competing for) important things. We have to change that. I don’t want to be here in the club to fight to be in sixth place or seventh place or fifth place,”

However, he backed Rangnick to succeed in Manchester, despite a poor start with the Red Devils so far, that has seen performances get worse rather than better, calling for more time for the German.

“He arrived here five weeks ago and changed many things but he needs time to put his ideas to the players and on the pitch as well it takes time but I believe he is going to do a good job.”

Were Manchester United not to make Champions League football next season, could we see another change of club for Ronaldo, who is continuing to set records even in a poor side, or will he make it his mission to return them to Europe’s top table?
