“What Ronaldo gave to Manchester United did not benefit him in the end!”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, former Manchester United coach, defended the decision to return Cristiano Ronaldo to the English club, and considered that what the player did in his second period at Old Trafford did not please him in front of the fans.

Many consider “The Don”‘s journey with United a failure after he did not succeed in achieving titles and the team’s standards declined greatly during that period until he left in a major quarrel with coach Erik ten Hag.

Solskjaer, who joined Ronaldo from Juventus in 2021, spoke about this matter by saying, “When he wanted to leave Juventus, we did not think we could bring him back. We had built our team without him.”

He also added, “As soon as the opportunity arose, of course, we signed him. He had a very good season with us. I think he scored 28 goals or a number like that, and his style was professional. However, that did not help him, me, or even the team.”

He continued, “I do not regret signing Ronaldo. We made the right decision to welcome him back to Old Trafford.”

He concluded, “I still remember the Newcastle match (Ronaldo’s first match) and how great the atmosphere at Old Trafford was. Unfortunately, things turned ugly with Ronaldo.”
