Cristiano Ronaldo wants Manchester United to be given more time to improve as voices grow louder for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to depart.
The 36-year-old superstar made the sensational move back to Old Trafford over the summer for a reported £12million – and more recently was one of the standout performers in Man United’s 3-2 win over Atalanta in the Champions League.
The Red Devils managed to overturn a two-goal deficit in the second half against the Serie A side, with Ronaldo scoring the winning goal with a header late on.
But the game highlighted some of the weaknesses still apparent in the northwest club, with some still believing that Solskjaer must leave for the side to improve, especially considering the amount of talent he has been able to bring in over the summer.
But Ronaldo has said that even star players take time to set in.
Speaking exclusively to Sky Sports ahead of Man United’s game against Liverpool on Sunday, Ronaldo said: “We are in a moment in my opinion that Manchester (United) do a few changes; they buy me, they buy (Raphael) Varane and (Jadon) Sancho.
“The adaptation will take time, even the system of the game that we play, but I think step by step we have to put it in our mind that everything is possible.
“I don’t speak only about my individual stuff, I put the collective in first place. To win things as a collective, it’s more easy to win individual stuff, I still think it’s possible.
He continued: “Everyone should know their role. I know my role in the team, in the club… my role is to score goals, to help the team with my experience and know-how to understand the game.
“If everyone is thinking like that, sacrifice for the team, I think we will be a better team. We have fantastic supporters behind us, fantastic stadium, fantastic team, so we have to carry on like that.”
United will welcome Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool to Old Trafford and have not won a game in their last three Premier League games.
Sitting eighth in the league on 14 points, a win would take Man United just a point behind the Reds who are sat in second place, four points off leaders Chelsea with a game in hand.
