Cristiano Ronaldo proved powerless to keep his side from falling to their 11th Premier League defeat of the season.


What did Dublin say about Ronaldo?

The Portuguese player, laughing after Brighton’s third goal against the Red Devils, summed up Manchester United’s disgusting display, according to Dion Dublin, who said they didn’t do the basics at Amex Stadium.

The Seagulls outmaneuvered Man Utd 4-0 on the south coast after a dominant performance, with Moises Caicedo giving the hosts half time before goals from Leandro Trossard, Pascal Gross and Marc Cucurella turned the win into the second period. Cristiano was seen laughing sarcastically after Pascal scored a third at Brighton in the 57th minute, which Dion singled out after the final whistle.

The ex-Red Devils player was skimpy in his assessment of Rangnick’s side and also suggested that the club had taken too long to appoint a new permanent head coach ahead of Ten Hag’s summer arrival. Dion Dublin said it was Man Utd’s fault for not getting the right person to take the manager’s job and give him time.

There are a couple of potentially great players there, according to Dublin. However, as they think, if they are not ready to do the basics of the game, there is no way they can realize their own skill. If they don’t do the basics, they won’t stand a chance.

Dion says one of the telltale signs was after one of the goals, when Cristiano was laughing. Is Cristiano Ronaldo laughing at his players? Does he say what’s going on here, Dublin in Man Utd or not? According to Dion, this summed up the day.


“They need young, hungry players”

Man Utd brought Cristiano back to the club from Juve last summer and he returned to great fanfare for his trophy-laden first spell at Old Trafford between 2003 and 2009. Cristiano Ronaldo has failed to inspire Manchester United to the silverware this season, although they have suffered in the Carabao Cup, FA Cup and Champions League with early exits.

Man Utd are also now guaranteed to finish outside the PL’s top four and while Cristiano managed to score 24 goals in all competitions, it has been suggested that the Portuguese has held back the team’s overall progress.

His former teammate Wayne Rooney noticed in April that Ronaldo was getting along a bit. The Portuguese is not a player who was in his twenties and it happens, this is football. Cristiano Ronaldo is dangerous to the net, but they need more in the rest of the game. According to Rooney, they need young, hungry players.
