“Ronaldo’s upfront and never shakes the manager’s hand”


Former Chelsea midfielder Craig Burley has lambasted Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United following their 4-0 defeat at the hands of Brentford in the Premier League.

The Red Devils were down by four goals by half-time with David de Gea’s errors and generally shambolic defending costing Erik ten Hag’s side dearly. United are currently winless in the Premier League after two games. They lost to Brighton & Hove Albion in their opening league game at Old Trafford last weekend.

Burley stated that Brentford players were hungrier, which he could not say about Manchester United’s superstars. He also questioned the United players’ professionalism after a second sobering defeat.

Speaking on ESPN FC, Burley said:

“Let’s just say to a man, those players are a disgrace to their profession. I’ll tell you why, we can all lose games, we can all have bad performances but individually would any of those Brentford players really have got into that Man United team? But they are super hungry, they want to be in the PL.”

He added about the likes of Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire, Diogo Dalot and others:

“I mean Shaw’s an international, Maguire’s played in a WC semi-final, Dalot is an international, Jadon Sancho is not worth a million, never mind a 100 million at the moment, Marcus Rashford, PSG want him, he wouldn’t go to one of the newly promoted teams in the league.”
