Cristiano Ronaldo has had his say on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s firing.

Solskjaer paid tribute to a manager who was first his teammate as a Manchester United player during his initial spell at the club.

The superstar has scored nine goals for the club since rejoining United, but was unable to stop the team’s slide in form.

Ronaldo lauded Solskjaer as an ‘outstanding human being’.

Pressure grows on Ronaldo

Solskjaer was the major target for criticism over United’s poor form over the past few weeks.

 

Now the attention will turn to United’s players if this awful record continues.

The onus is on leaders like Ronaldo to step up and start improving.

Ronaldo had several chances in the defeat to Watford and was wasteful, lacking the clinical touch United needed from him.

The Solskjaer excuse is now gone, and United need to show a reaction to the manager’s sacking.
