Cristiano Ronaldo has been slammed and told keep your mouth shut after reportedly warning that he will leave Manchester United if they don’t get the right manager.

Ronaldo could seek pastures new if he doesn’t buy into the idea of United’s next manager.

Cristiano Ronaldo has been told “keep your mouth shut” after reports allegedly claimed the football icon would leave Manchester United if he is not a fan of the manager that will be appointed on a permanent basis during the summer The Portuguese returned to Old Trafford from Serie A club Juventus during the summer of 2021, but his homecoming has not been what he hoped for, with United sitting in the 7th spot in the Premier League standings, 22 points behind rivals Manchester City. Following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Ralf Rangnick was brought in to guide the Red Devils until the end of the 2021-22 campaign, however, the Daily Star recently reported that Ronaldo could seek pastures new if the 20-time champions do not get the right manager to get them back to winning trophies.

Nonetheless, former Man City and West Ham star Trevor Sinclair says Pep Guardiola’s Cityzens might have ‘dodged a bullet’ by not signing the 36-year-old. “I’m starting to think that Manchester City dodged a bullet by not signing Cristiano, I really think that,” he told talkSPORT. “You look at some of the players that are struggling for form at Manchester United, young players, Sancho, Rashford, they’re really struggling for good performances. “Course you can [blame Ronaldo for that]. Know your role, know your role. You’re a footballer, you’re hired by the football club. “Keep your mouth shut because at times that’s the best thing to do. He’s causing a lot of problems at the football club.

“Not just his lack of goals in recent times, but the fact that Ole’s gone and Michael went in and dropped him for a game. “I just feel it’s been one of those signings where it looked good, but it’s far from good,” Sinclair added. “For me, one of the reasons I think he may not have considered Manchester City, and it’s certainly not winning trophies because he would have won a lot of silverware there. “I think it’s because he didn’t want to be second fiddle to Pep. Whereas he could go into Manchester United, he could almost feel like he could bully Ole. “And I think he just want to do what he wants for him and it’s not the best for the club.”
