Former Aston Villa striker, Gabriel Agbonlahor has claimed three Manchester United players are intimidated by Cristiano Ronaldo.
Agbonlahor also hit out at Ronaldo for ‘sulking’ during their disappointing 1-1 draw with Newcastle United on Monday.
Second-half substitute Edinson Cavani ensured United got a point at St James’ Park, cancelling out Allan Saint-Maximin’s superb opener.
According to him, Ronaldo is affecting the “harmony” in the dressing room and intimidating Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Jadon Sancho.
He told Football Insider:
“The harmony is not right in that changingq room.
“They can’t express themselves, it’s like they think, “I have to pass to Ronaldo, I have to create a chance for Ronaldo”.
“Before Ronaldo came, Greenwood was taking players on and shots on and he’s not doing that anymore and getting dragged at half-time.
“If I was Rashford, Greenwood or Sancho I’d be saying to myself, “Oh, why did we have to bring him here?”
“‘Rashford, Greenwood and Sancho can play as a front three rotating positions and running in behind. If the manager had anything about him, he’d drop Ronaldo for the next game.”
