EPL: Three Man Utd players are intimidated by Ronaldo – Agbonlahor
Former Aston Villa striker, Gabriel Agbonlahor has claimed three Manchester United players are intimidated by Cristiano Ronaldo.
Agbonlahor also hit out at Ronaldo for ‘sulking’ during their disappointing 1-1 draw with Newcastle United on Monday.
Second-half substitute Edinson Cavani ensured United got a point at St James’ Park, cancelling out Allan Saint-Maximin’s superb opener.
Agbonlahor has now criticized Ronaldo’s performance and says interim boss Ralf Rangnick would drop the 36-year-old “if he had anything about him”.
According to him, Ronaldo is affecting the “harmony” in the dressing room and intimidating Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Jadon Sancho.
Agbonlahor told Football Insider: “The harmony is not right in that changing room.
“They can’t express themselves, it’s like they think, “I have to pass to Ronaldo, I have to create a chance for Ronaldo”.
“Before Ronaldo came, Greenwood was taking players on and shots on and he’s not doing that anymore and getting dragged at half-time.
“If I was Rashford, Greenwood or Sancho I’d be saying to myself, “Oh, why did we have to bring him here?”
“‘Rashford, Greenwood and Sancho can play as a front three rotating positions and running in behind. If the manager had anything about him, he’d drop Ronaldo for the next game.”
