How Cristiano Ronaldo, Even In “His Worst Season” Has Kept Manchester United In The Top Five

Cristiano Ronaldo has not had the most enjoyable time at Manchester United, considering the high standards he set. For the first time in over 17 years, Ronaldo will end the season devoid of any trophy.

His finishing skills are declining and his defense contribution is in decline. Managers who prefer high-press football will not likely want him at the front, and with 15 goals so far in the Premier League, he is on the course to recording his lowest goal tally in over a decade.

Ralf Ragnick is the interim manager and prefers Edinson to Ronaldo for setting up his team for intense, high-pressure pressing. Ragnick stated that today’s game against Burnley would require Ragnick to sprint, chase balls and fight for second balls. This is the best profile Edinson Cavani has, which is why he begins .”

Further: The Portuguese forward never missed so many games due to injuries as this season. Never since 2014/15 has Ronaldo sustained three different injuries. He sustained an arm injury in the year before his hip flexor problem recurred.

Against Atletico Madrid, the Champions League saw the winger fail to score a goal. Even though he was a formidable attacking threat until his last season with Juventus (5.1 shots per match), he hasn’t been as effective. He has averaged 3.7 shots per match this season.

These numbers show Ronaldo’s declining fortunes, which is not surprising considering that he is now 37. Even though Ronaldo is in the final stages of his distinguished career, Manchester United still benefits from the enormous impact that he made. The club wouldn’t have been fighting to be in the top five without his support.

Manchester United has lost every game in the Premier League where Ronaldo did not play. They would be in the bottom third of the club without Ronaldo’s goals. United’s success this season has been determined by 19, which he managed in place of 21’s goals against Burnley.

Manchester United without Ronaldo this season would be facing a relegation battle. A terrible performance.
