Arsenal legend, Charlie Nicholas has said Cristiano Ronaldo made a mistake by deciding to return to Manchester United.
Nicholas believes the return of Ronaldo to Old Trafford has hampered the development of the likes of Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood.
Ronaldo made a sudden return to Manchester United last summer after spending three seasons at Juventus.
The Portugal international has helped the club remain in the Champions League and saved them defeat on many occasions in the league.
But Nicholas is of the opinion that both Manchester United and Ronaldo are regretting the move.
Cristiano Ronaldo coming back to Manchester United hasn’t had an influence on either Mason Greenwood or Marcus Rashford’s development this season,’ Nicholas told MyBettingSites.
You [United] don’t look at someone who is Ronaldo’s age and sign them. It wasn’t a clever move for Manchester United and it wasn’t a clever move for Ronaldo himself either.
The Ronaldo signing shows that Manchester United’s board have no focus on where they want to be.
It isn’t Cristiano that’s disturbed Greenwood or Rashford’s quality.
Ronaldo wasn’t the right signing and it’s typical that Manchester United are getting all the decisions wrong at the top levels [of the boardroom].”
