Arsene Wenger, the former Arsenal manager, feels Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival at Manchester United has caused further problems for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Red Devils have only won three of their past nine matches in all competitions and have gone four games without a win in the Premier League.
Despite the hype surrounding Ronaldo’s arrival and the goals he has scored, the Portuguese have appeared to be causing the team’s fortunes to deteriorate from last season.
Wenger in a chat with TribalFootball, said, “I wouldn’t say it was a mistake but certainly some emotional impact was in there because he has been a fantastic player,” said Wenger.
“I wouldn’t say it was a mistake but certainly some emotional impact was in there because he has been a fantastic player,” said Wenger.
“No, I believe Ronaldo can still score you the goals you need. Can he repeat every three games, very high-intensity games? That’s certainly less the case today but let’s not forget he was the hero three days ago.
“When you buy a player like that, the secret is the balance of the team. To play Ronaldo, he can win you games, but you need to create the balance around him.”
