DeMiter Berbatov has warned Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Soulszor to keep his team happy, as the re-signing of Cristiano Ronaldo may have reduced some players’ playing time.
Speaking exclusively to Betfair, the two-time Premier League winner said that the return of Ronaldo was a big boost for The Red Devils, which would disqualify some stars.
“I’m not surprised by the immediate impact he (Ronaldo) has made on United,” Berbatov said. “He will only improve as The Tau continues.
You can’t argue with his goal scoring and the aura he brings to the team. It will be interesting to see how Ole makes other players happy. He has to decide how he uses the likes of Edison Cavani and Anthony Martial. Players feel this is difficult when it is difficult to manage a talented team.
The Bulgarian has also claimed that the arrival of Ronaldo has made striker Edison Kawani more frustrated. He hopes that Solskjar will speak with Uruguayans and clarify their future.
I think he had an honest conversation with Kawani about his plans for the Ole team. As a player in this situation, you understand that the job of a manager is to choose the best team but you always want to play and you get unhappy when you quit.
“Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s red card is a big shot … but the Red Devils had to handle the situation better,” the former Tottenham Hotspur said. “When you get down to 10 men, you have to be more focused and more intelligent. Not united, and in the end, a decline in concentration from Jesse Lingard will cost them.
The result shows that United should be on the high street in the Champions League. In the first half of foreign matches, their players should not receive red cards. But this situation can get to the players, cloud their judgment and lead to rash decisions. In the circumstances, the draw was a decent result. “
