The Red Devils legend criticizes the Portuguese star for his post-match reactions.

Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw in their match against Everton on Saturday. In a match that saw Andros Townsend


Ronaldo’s trademark celebration, the Red Devils displayed another underwhelming performance with their host of stars being present on the pitch.

After the game, Ronaldo was seen muttering to himself in frustration as he walked down the tunnel. Ronaldo started the match on the bench, which might be related to his frustration after the final whistle.

Former Man United captain Gary Neville reflected on how Ronaldo’s post-match reactions might put Ole Gunnar Solskjaer under pressure.

“I watched the game and I watched him walk off. I can't say I liked it.”

Neville said on his podcast.

“Is Cristiano upset when he doesn't play? Yes. Is Cristiano upset when he doesn't score? Yes. Is Cristiano annoyed as hell when the team don't win? Of course.

“We know those things. He doesn't have to prove that.

“He walks off the pitch, muttering to himself, which throws questions up in the air. What is he saying? Who is he annoyed with? It can only come back to the manager.

“Cristiano is smart enough to know actions like that will bring real pressure on the manager - more than he is already under.

“It is what it is, but I think that is something that has to be managed in the next couple of months.

“Cristiano is not always going to score and he maybe can't play every game. But if he's going to walk off like that, it's going to put immense pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer."

Man United are struggling to maintain consistency with their performances this season. Solskjaer’s side are currently fourth in the Premier League, having won four games from their first seven matches of the campaign. The Red Devils will meet Leicester City in their next league match on October 16.
