‘He needs to do more’: Cristiano Ronaldo blasted following actions during Newcastle game

Manchester United fail to beat Newcastle

Manchester United would take on Newcastle United on Monday evening.

The Red Devils have had a decent start to life under Ralf Rangnick and were expected to kick on against relegation-threatened Newcastle.

However, when all was said and done at St James’ Park, Man United were probably lucky to come away with a point after Edinson Cavani came on to rescue a point and cancel out Allan Saint-Maximin’s opener.

‘I feel he needs to do more to be a team player.’

One of Manchester United’s poorer performers on the day was Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese looked disinterested throughout the 90 minutes and failed to have a single shot on target.

Now, former Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor has taken aim at Ronaldo for his actions during the game and his reaction towards his fellow players when they make a mistake:

“If you’re Greenwood, Rashford or Sancho and you make a bad pass or a bad cross, you’re looking at Ronaldo and he’s throwing his arms up!

“Why can’t he be like ‘oh unlucky, next time’ like Cavani when he came on?

“Rashford messed up his kick and Cavani was clapping him, saying ‘next time’.

“I understand he’s one of the best but the younger players coming through need the senior players to give them a hand when they’re not playing well.

“Confidence is low. It’s all about Ronaldo, running off the pitch after the game because he hasn’t got his goal.

“I feel he needs to do more to be a team player.”

Elsewhere, Cristiano Ronaldo was also scolded for not showing any support to Manchester United’s traveling fans:
