Manchester United’s handling of Cristiano Ronaldo labelled ’embarrassing’ and ‘a circus’ as Mark Goldbridge accuses club of trying to ‘dirty’ Portuguese’s name August 29, 2022 – Posted in: Soccer

Manchester United’s management of Cristiano Ronaldo is embarrassing and the club are trying to dirty his name, according to talkSPORT host Mark Goldbridge.

The wantaway star is running out of time in his bid to leave Old Trafford before deadline day on Thursday and has been restricted to cameo appearances from the bench in United’s last two league games.

Ronaldo has been seen engaging in humorous pre-match exchanges with former team-mates over the past week, suggesting that he is in good spirits despite his situation at Old Trafford but Goldbridge is concerned at the club’s handling of the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.

“Cristiano Ronaldo before the Liverpool game, he’s hugging Gary Neville and snubbing Jamie Carragher and then he’s squirting water at Rio Ferdinand and they are the viral moments of Cristiano Ronaldo,” Goldbridge told talkSPORT.

“I want to see Cristiano Ronaldo scoring goals. He was our player of the year last year and he got 18 Premier League goals in the worst United Premier League side I’ve ever seen.”

Goldbridge continued: “It’s becoming a circus. It’s embarrassing that we are not using our best player because he is still our best player and it’s embarrassing that these leaks are coming out that Ronaldo doesn’t want to do this or that.

“I know how that club is run and they are thinking of selling Ronaldo and they are trying to dirty his name. They are trying to make the fan base go ‘get rid of him’.”

Goldbridge continued his criticism of Manchester United and insisted the club should never have issued a statement saying he is not for sale, instead allowing the Portuguese star to leave the club.

“Actually what we should have done is just sold him. Just sell him, he’s a legend of this football club,” Goldbridge added.

“Anybody who has been watching Manchester United for a long period of time back in the late noughties, Ronaldo is one of the greatest players to play the game. He’s one of the greatest players to put on a Manchester United shirt.

“If he wants to go, let’s be mature about it and sell him back in July.”
