Ronaldo: "I don’t want to stay in Manchester to play for seventh place"

Cristiano Ronaldo

Milan, 13 January 2022 – “I don’t want to stay here to play for fifth, sixth or seventh place. I’m here to try to win, to compete. I don’t accept that our mentality doesn’t have the goal of being in the top three. Premier League. I believe that to build beautiful things, sometimes you need to destroy others. So maybe new year and new life: I hope the Manchester United can be at the level that the fans want. ” Cristiano Ronaldo does not accept mediocrity. This is now an established fact, given what CR7 has combined in his career, his continuous hunger for success and his obsessive work. That’s why he doesn’t agree to play in a team – moreover with the history of Manchester United – that occupies the seventh position in the league. “What I can say is that we can all do better. Manchester United are great: we have to change and understand this. We are competitive, yes, but not at our top.”

Rangnick chapter

The message launched by the former Juventus to the whole environment is clear. Environment that in recent months has welcomed the arrival of Ralf Rangnick as a new manager. “Since he arrived a few weeks ago, he has already changed many things and we have already improved on certain aspects. But he needs time to get his ideas into the minds of his players: it is not easy to change the mentality of the players, the way with which they play, their culture, the form – Ronaldo underlines to Sky Sports Uk microphones – It takes time, but I’m sure he will do a good job. We know that we are not playing great football, but there are many games to improve . The fact that I have an interim coach, however, I think may affect the attitude of some players, who know that those who give them instructions will not be in charge for a long time. A coach must feel secure in his position: if he knows he is staying alone for four months is not placed in an ideal situation to ask for authority and respect for his players. ”

Hypothesis Brazil

Speaking of the future, the five-time Golden Ball does not rule out moving to Brazil one day. “What I can say with absolute certainty is that it is a ‘brother’ country. For the relationship I have with my colleagues, for the culture, for the many Brazilians who live in Portugal. My sister lives in Brazil, she is married with a Brazilian – he tells Espn Brasil – I follow my nutrition courses with Brazilians. It is a country that I love, but no one knows if I will play it, as no one could think that I would return to Manchester at 36. Now it is far from mine thoughts. But in football everything is possible, I don’t know. ”
