If Cristiano Ronaldo leaves, Manchester United might place in the bottom half of the Premier League, according to Gary Neville.
After losing their first two games, Man Utd is currently last in the Premier League, and Cristiano Ronaldo’s future with the team is in doubt. In Gary Neville’s opinion, if the 37-year-old leaves the team, United might finish in the bottom half of the league. If Cristiano Ronaldo leaves the team, according to Gary Neville, Manchester United might place in the bottom half of the Premier League this year.
Under new manager Erik ten Hag, United are off to their worst Premier League season start in 101 years. United is at the bottom of the standings after losing to Brighton on opening weekend and then suffering a humiliating 4-0 loss away to Brentford on Saturday. Ronaldo’s future at United is currently in grave doubt because the 37-year-old wants to leave Old Trafford this summer in order to sign with a Champions League team.
The loss of Ronaldo, a teammate of Neville’s at United, could hurt their prospects of finishing the season in a respectable position, according to Neville. The issue they currently have is that the goal-scoring portion of the field would be completely depleted if they lost him.
Neville remarked on Monday Night Football, “I truly believe they can finish in the bottom half of the table if they don’t bring players in or if they bring in mediocre players and he leaves. “I believe that team is in the lower half of the standings. That is a big statement that can come off as foolish at the conclusion of the campaign.
It’s terrible in there; they’re shot to pieces and demoralized. They’ve returned to default.Neville’s fellow Sky Sports analyst Jamie Carragher identified David de Gea and Lisandro Martinez as the new United team under Ten Hag’s leadership’s early weak spots.
Carragher said on MNF, “This is a manager who comes from Ajax and it’s apparent he prefers his goalie to play out from the back.” However, this goalkeeper is still not adept enough with the ball. He will focus on David de Gea as his first issue because, I’m certain, there will have been verbal exchange. Although we shouldn’t make snap decisions about coaches or players, his size playing in a back four has convinced me that this can’t work. “Perhaps he could play left back, perhaps he could play in a back three, but in the Premier League, he cannot play there in a back four.
Every club that plays Manchester United, possibly with the exception of Man City and Liverpool, who might feel that “we don’t need to change for Man United,” should target that, which is why they’re going to have a tremendous problem with [Martinez] at center-back. “They absolutely ought to do that, and I believe United has a serious issue. Ten Hag has left his mark on this team in small ways, and I believe the two or three things he has influenced are failing.”
