Speaking to Casinos En Ligne, Andy Cole said: “I’m not going to sit here and say Cristiano Ronaldo was the problem, because at a football club there can be more than one individual that can be a problem.
“You hear it said that Manchester United have done fantastically well to get rid of him and now everything’s all rosy. No, I don’t think so because there seemed to be problems before he arrived and there’s still problems since he left — despite this run they’re on.
“It’s too simplistic to scapegoat Ronaldo when clearly there’s other issues at play. If they lose a couple of games, who are they going to blame then? Because obviously you can’t blame Ronaldo any more. Ronaldo has been an unbelievable player and I wish the situation could have been resolved better.”
Ronaldo terminated his contract at Man United ‘by mutual consent’ before the World Cup following his explosive tell-all interview with Piers Morgan.
The Red Devils opted to back Erik ten Hag and their faith in the Dutchman is being rewarded so far with things finally looking up at Old Trafford.
