Silvestre: Ronaldo situation is disturbing
The Cristiano Ronaldo saga has become a ‘disturbing’ distraction at Manchester United, according to one of the club’s former stars.
However, Mikael Silvestre believes the club should be patient rather than acting rashly.
In conversation with bettingexpert, the former defender said: “It’s disturbing, that’s for sure. You can’t deny it.
“The question is: how is the team dealing with it, and how are the staff are dealing with it? The answer to these questions will come soon.
“It’s important to keep calm. In football more than any other business, we should use the phrase, ‘wait and see’. That’s it, sit tight and see what happens.”
And in Jadon Sancho, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, Silvestre believes the club have enough attacking talent to thrive without Ronaldo.
“Individually they need to reach their full potential and then as a trio, their connection, their understanding, their movements, and the link-up play takes a bit of time. That comes with confidence as well.
“Hopefully, they have a run of games together and I think they can challenge with what they can add and they can bring that stability going forward for Manchester United.”
