The RISE and FALL of Cristiano Ronaldo in numbers
Cristiano Ronaldo tried to leave Manchester United last summer, and now the Portuguese has been relegated to the bench for most of the matches.
Ronaldo is experiencing one of his worst seasons at the professional level, both in terms of performance and numbers.
So far, Cristiano Ronaldo has played nine matches in the Manchester United shirt, starting only in one Premier League match, where the team lost 4-0 to Brigthon, and in the three Europa League matches, where he scored his only goal of the season, which was from the penalty spot against FC Sheriff (0-2)……..Continue Reading
As for the rest of the matches where he has been able to have minutes, Cristiano has shown to be at a level far from what is expected of a striker like him.
In fact, the former Real Madrid man has only been able to shoot 10 times in the Premier League, which is an average of less than two shots per game, something incredible for the greatest scorer in the history of soccer.
Not only has his performance with Manchester United been somewhat questionable, but his role in recent friendlies with Portugal has not exactly been remarkable either.
In the match against Spain, the legend had several chances to score, but poor finishing, coupled with his lack of speed at key moments, meant that he was unable to score.
Less than 50 days until the Qatar World Cup
Obviously, unless there is a physical setback, Cristiano Ronaldo will be with Portugal in group H, where he will face Uruguay, Ghana and North Korea, although his level could force Fernando Santos to bet on other attackers who are in better shape, such as Leao, Diogo Jota or Goncalo Ramos.
