Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United superstar, believes the team would need time to adjust to new player signings.
After unexpected defeats to Young Boys, Aston Villa, and Leicester City, the Red Devils have been questioned, while rivals Liverpool and Chelsea have had strong starts. There has also been a continuos call for the sacking of Man utd Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer by fans.
As a result, Ronaldo has spoken to the media about his stuttering start and why fans should instead practice patience.
“We are in a moment in my opinion that Manchester (United) do a few changes; they buy me, they buy (Raphael) Varane and (Jadon) Sancho,” Ronaldo told Sky Sports.
“The adaptation will take time, even the system of the game that we play, but I think step by step we have to put it in our mind that everything is possible.
The Portuguese star emphasized that he is putting the team’s success ahead of his own personal goals.
“I don’t speak only about my individual stuff, I put the collective in first place. To win things as a collective, it’s more easy to win individual stuff, I still think it’s possible.
“Everyone should know their role. I know my role in the team, in the club… my role is to score goals, to help the team with my experience and know-how to understand the game.
“If everyone is thinking like that, sacrifice for the team, I think we will be a better team. We have fantastic supporters behind us, fantastic stadium, fantastic team, so we have to carry on like that,” the 36-year-old concluded.
Meanwhile, United is likely to be inspired by Ronaldo’s big-game demeanor when they face arch English rivals Liverpool on Sunday.
