'Ronaldo is one of Solskjaer's problems'

English Premier League

A former Manchester United star claims that Cristiano Ronaldo's return will be a problem for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season.

The Portuguese forward has impressed on his return so far after scoring five goals in as many games across all competitions this season.

While there have a few former players who feels Solskjaer is still building, Gary Neville claims Ronaldo's arrival has changed that as he wants to win now.

"What I do think now, three years in, this is his third full season… performance has to improve," the former United defender told The Overlap.

"So the problem that Ole has got at the moment is Ronaldo coming means it’s make or break.

"You have to win with Ronaldo, you have to win a trophy. He’s not coming here not to win a trophy and be second, third and fourth.

“Second thing is the performances are poor.

"I don’t think they’ve even played well enough a lot of the games they’ve won.

“The performance levels, if you watch all the top teams - City, Liverpool, Chelsea (United don't compare)."
