Louis Saha has given the reason behind the struggles of Cristiano Ronaldo in his second spell at Manchester United. The Portuguese international captain returned to the Theatre of Dreams for his second spell in August 2021 on a two-year deal with the option of an extra year. He had joined Manchester United from Juventus where he spent three years.
Ronaldo has struggled at various times in the first season of his second spell as a Manchester United player and Frenchman Louis Saha is certain about the reason behind his struggles in front of goal especially since the start of this year. Louis Saha is a formerManchester United striker and he spoke to freebets about Ronaldo. According to him, no one wants to cross the ball again and that’s been a big problem for Ronaldo in terms of his output in front of goal.
Five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo established himself as one of the best goalscorers ever netting 551 goals in 572 appearances during his time at Real Madrid and Juventus. He spent nine years at Real Madrid on the back of his transfer from Manchester United in 2009 before leaving the club to sign for Italian Serie A giants Juventus in 2021. Ronaldo won his first Ballon d’Or title at Manchester United in 2008 before adding four more during his time at Real Madrid.
Ronaldo had scored just nine league goals and six Champions League goals when Saha spoke about him ahead of the Tottenham Hotspur game in the Premier League last weekend. He went on to score a hat-trick to boost the top-four hopes of his team via a 3-2 win at home to Spurs. The treble took his tally to six Champions League goals and 12 Premier League goals for a total of 18 goals. He has scored at least 28 goals in each of his last 12 seasons.
