Garry Neville: Cristiano Ronaldo needs to leave. Doesn't fit into ten Hag's system

There are many stories about Cristiano Ronaldo and his departure. It seems that the Portuguese will definitely leave Manchester United. In the last pre-season game, Ronaldo left the stadium before the team, during the game. Such behavior caused anger among everyone.

Garry Neville had this to say about Ronaldo: "Let me be clear: no one could have imagined what Ronaldo achieved in football and history will remember him as one of the best. This season will be forgotten in 20 years. But as a former captain of Manchester United, it is uncomfortable for me to watch the star of the dressing room go into drama.

It also happened in the last couple of seasons, we had Pogba's manager - not always Pogba, but definitely a manager - who always played with the club. You can't let the star of the team lead your club. You can't", said Neville categorically.

Garry Neville on Ronaldo and his move

Garry Neville is also furious about the rumors that Ronaldo wants to leave United. He thinks it's a bad move. "We know what Ronaldo can't do (high pressing), and the way he wants to play, on the ball, I don't think corresponds to Ten Hag's ideas...

Secondly, those stories that Cristiano Ronaldo wants to go, the timing was terrible . At the start, he undermined Ten Hag. Everything he talked about in press conferences was literally erased by stories about Ronaldo. If we look back, Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp, Antonio Conte, Sir Alex Ferguson...

Imagine that the player became the dominant issue for them, that he started to distract from other things, then there is only one thing that has to happen. We all know which one". Jamie Carragher was not happy with the arrival of Ronaldo considering his age.

"I always thought that bringing Ronaldo was a bizarre move. Somehow I felt it would come to this, even if it was good. He signed for two plus one year, I couldn't believe it. He's not the same person anymore. He is 37 years old, he will be 38 this season, he is still a great scorer, but he is not the same player.

And I could be wrong, but I don't see any other European club wanting him at the moment. If you ask Ten Hag, I don't think he wants one either. And I'm not sure that the dressing room of Manchester United wants Cristiano Ronaldo at the moment." We will se what will happen with Cristiano Ronaldo.
