Cristiano Ronaldo remains a goal threat, but Wayne Rooney thinks the Red Devils need more.


What did Rooney say about Cristiano Ronaldo?

According to his former teammate, the Portuguese’s move to Man Utd didn’t go as well as both sides could have hoped. Cristiano was returned to Old Trafford after a largely unsuccessful spell with Juve, with him hoping the Portugal captain would act as a springboard to success. But while Ronaldo remains Man Utd’s main source of goals, it is the younger, hungry players who feel that his old club is missing.

Asked if he thought Ronaldo’s signing had worked, Wayne Rooney replied that at the moment, one would have to say no. Cristiano Ronaldo scored goals, important goals in the Champions League early on, he scored a hat-trick against Tottenham, but if they are looking for the future of the club, they must go with younger, hungry players to do whatever it takes to lift Manchester United into over the next two to three years.

According to Wayne Rooney, Ronaldo is improving a little. He said that Cristiano is not a player in his twenties and this is happening, this is football. Ronaldo is a scoring threat but they need more in the rest of the game. They need young, hungry players.


Which players can help?

Pressing on which players already at the club can help the cause in the coming years, Wayne said they have some good young players. Sancho will be better next year, Rashford will be better next year. Rooney thinks Lingard should be the player for them because he brings energy and quality. McTominay has done well, so they have some good young players, they just have to be confident, make them believe they are good players and perform at their best. According to Wayne Rooney, the new manager, whoever it is, is confident he will bring in his own players to help rebuild the group.
