Gary Neville has criticized Cristiano Ronaldo for rushing to the locker room after Manchester United’s draw with Everton and underlined that the Portuguese’s move has put a lot of pressure on coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Ronaldo was visibly angry after United’s 1-1 draw at Old Trafford on Saturday and left alone to the locker room shortly after the referee blew the whistle.
The Portuguese superstar enjoyed an amazing start to the season with United, scoring five goals in six games after returning to the club, but was left on the bench against Everton.
Ronaldo showed nothing after entering the game from the bench in the second half and failed to inspire his team towards another victory at the Theater of Dreams.
Neville said he did not like Ronaldo’s reaction, which he believes will only increase the pressure on coach Solskjaer, who is already being criticized by fans for the results of recent games.
Former United defender Neville said: “I watched the game and I saw it go away. I can not say that I liked it.”
“Does Ronaldo get angry when he does not play? Yes. Does he get angry when he does not score? Yes. Does Cristiano get upset when the team does not win? Naturally. We know these things, he does not need to prove it. ”
He added: “I think such reactions – Ronaldo is smart enough to know this – will put more pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.”
