One major reason why Juventus let Ronaldo go that is already reflecting at United

One major reason why Juventus let Ronaldo go that is already reflecting at United


After joining United from Juventus this summer, the Portuguese striker made an immediate impact, scoring a brace in his first game and adding three more goals in his subsequent games. He has since gone on to have another successful season at Old Trafford. The honeymoon period, on the other hand, appears to have come to an end for Ronaldo, who has failed to find the back of the net in his last two appearances for the club.

Ronaldo and Manchester United appear to be in a state of crisis at the moment, having won only two of their last seven games in all competitions. On Saturday, they were defeated 4-2 by Leicester City in their most recent outing. The way things are going at the club, it is clear that Juventus had problems with Ronaldo. As a result, we will look at one of the most significant reasons we believe Juventus let Ronaldo go, which is already showing in his performance at his new club.

It should be an advantage for you to have a player of Ronaldo's caliber on your team. However, due to the way football works, the presence of Ronaldo on a team can be a curse, rather than a blessing for the team. In the following section, we examine one possible reason why Juventus let Ronaldo go, which is now surfacing at Manchester United.

In his first tenure, Maximiliano Allegri reportedly told the Juventus hierarchy that Cristiano Ronaldo was a hindrance to young players, and he was absolutely correct. Juventus became so reliant on the Portuguese striker in the following two years that they are unable to win football matches without him, and they are still struggling to do so. The Italian club suffered at the start of the season without him, but they have since put their early season disappointment behind them by winning six of their past seven games in all competitions, including the Serie A.

A noticeable characteristic of Ronaldo that led to Juventus' decision to part ways with him is that he has a tendency to disturb the balance of the team. He joined the club after they had already won the Serie A title on numerous occasions and even reached the UCL final twice; nevertheless, he made it difficult for them to do so, a fact that illustrates just how detrimental his presence has been to the team's success.

Manchester United finished second in the Premier League last season, narrowly behind Manchester City. They had a strong start to the season as well, with Mason Greenwood scoring in each of his first three games of the season before to the arrival of Ronaldo. It should be remembered that Manchester United has conceded more points in the Premier League this season with Ronaldo on the field than they have with him off the field this season.

Without a doubt, we can claim that Ronaldo has thrown off the balance of the Manchester United group. He lacks the energy and stamina to press from the front and aid in United's defense, he isn't scoring spectacular goals, and yet everyone on the team appears to admire him and always wants to give him the ball, which is a rare occurrence. In particular, Jadon Sancho has undoubtedly suffered as a result of Ronaldo's stay at the club, as he has yet to produce a single assist or score a goal in his first two seasons.

In truth, we can conclude that the same problem that Juventus sees in the Portuguese striker that led to their decision to release him has resurfaced at Manchester United as well.
