Football England – Cristiano Ronaldo, a humiliating blow from the breakdown

Transferred last summer from Juventus to Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo leaves a mixed feeling on the side of Old Trafford. After scoring decisive goals at the start of the season, CR7 is down.

Cristiano Ronaldo was decisive several times for the Red Devils during the first half of the season, notably in the Champions League where he allowed his side to get out of a complicated situation thanks to golden goals against the ‘Atalanta. The Portuguese star did the same in the Premier League, allowing Manchester United not to completely drop in the standings and the regulars at Old Trafford to sometimes get excited. However, in recent weeks, the CR7 machine has gone wrong, and this materialized last week in the Cup when Cristiano Ronaldo missed a penalty against Middlesbrough. Diving into the numbers, English journalists noticed that the Mancunian star had not scored a single goal since Manchester United’s 3-1 victory on December 30 against Burnley and therefore remains on four consecutive meetings without finding the way nets which for him is extremely rare.

Cristiano Ronaldo no longer scores, Manchester United on alert

And the coincidence of the calendar that it is this Tuesday against the same team, Burnley, that the formation of Ralf Rangnick, led by Cristiano Ronaldo, will play in the league. And if he wants to avoid being reminded of bad memories, CR7 has every interest in scoring against the Clarets, the tabloids being already on the lookout. The Sun recalls on the eve of this Premier League meeting that if he remains silent on Tuesday, the Portuguese will experience the worst series without scoring a single goal for 12 years. That year, while playing for Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo failed to score in the last two games of the 2009-2010 season and in the first three of the 2010-2011 season. Since his improbable comeback in Manchester, CR7 has scored 6 goals in 18 league games, and 6 goals in 5 Champions League games. Three days after turning 37, the star will likely be determined not to let doubt linger for too long.
