Manchester United: Ronaldo baffled by the lack of professionalism of his teammates

Cristiano Ronaldo would be worried about the attitude of his teammates at Manchester United, their lack of work and professionalism.

The annoyance of Cristiano Ronaldo spreads every day a little more in the English press. Thursday, the Portuguese striker also publicly invited his teammates to move. “I say that we still have a lot to do because, for me, the most important thing is the mentality, he launched in an interview with Sky Sports. Look at yourself and say, ‘I can do better’. For you to be professional, help the team, have the right mentality, be self-directed and positive. All these details are up to you, not the coaches, fans or from the press. If you’re proud of yourself and have dignity, you need to do it a lot more.”

The only player to do extra work These statements are an extension of the state of mind of the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who works on his physical condition after each training session. According to the Daily Mail, the Portuguese is baffled that his teammates are not doing the same. Ronaldo has complained, privately, of being the only player in the squad to go to the gym to do extra work before and after training at Carrington. He would also have implied that young players were very unreceptive to his advice.

“If I give you advice, even if you are younger than me, if you don’t implant not that in your day to day life it will be difficult he said I will be the first to help but if you don’t want my help do your job find yourself do your best to help the team. I can talk all day with a person, but if it doesn’t come from inside you, it’s impossible. When I had 18, 19, 19 years, some older players spoke to me, but I said that ‘Cristiano, you have to improve.'”

The attitude of the rest of the team worries him to the point of seeing rumors of a departure flourish. Workaholic, the 36 year-old striker (14 goals in 22 games this season) said he could see himself playing beyond 40 year. After 19 days, Manchester United is seventh in the Premier League.
