Keane Insists Ronaldo Had An Attitude “Ten Years Ago” And Dismisses Claims That He Makes Teams Worse

Manchester United Has Made An Excellent U-turn On The 'Cristiano Ronaldo Rule' At Old Trafford

Roy Keane believes Cristiano Ronaldo’s attitude is nothing new and that the claims that he makes teams worse are false..

Ronaldo’s former teammate Keane has provided an interesting perspective on the 37-year-old and his impact at the World Cup thus far.

Portugal manager Fernando Santos made the audacious decision to rest Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of Portugal’s round of 16 match against Switzerland.

Santos’ team won 6-1 on the night, with Ronaldo’s replacement Goncalo Ramos scoring three goals.

Keane has recently been a vocal supporter of Ronaldo in the press, claiming that his attitude is nothing new.

“Are football players expected to be perfect?” He stated this on the SkyBet YouTube channel..

Keane Insists Ronaldo Had An Attitude "Ten Years Ago" And Dismisses Claims That He Makes Teams Worse

Cristiano Ronaldo had this attitude ten years ago, but the next game he scored a hat trick, and he was 27 at the time – everyone would forgive him.

People say he makes teams worse – Juventus haven’t done anything since he left a few years ago.

“Against Switzerland, Portugal’s manager made the correct decision in replacing Ronaldo with someone who provided more mobility up front.”

“He [Goncalo Ramos] scores three goals, and everyone turns to look at Ronaldo.” I always thought Ronaldo might not start a World Cup knockout game for Portugal because he’s 37.”

Ronaldo’s future at Manchester United is now uncertain after his contract was terminated. The 37-year-old is now a free agent and is weighing his options..

Al Nassr has been one of the clubs most interested in signing Ronaldo, but no agreement has yet been reached.

Gary Neville, speaking on the same show, had a slightly different take on Ronaldo than Keane.

“Ronaldo is the best player I’ve ever seen, and despite what he may think, I adore him – he is incredible.” His long-term legacy has been established.

“My issue is that his determination and single-mindedness got him to where he is, but it resulted in his departure from Manchester United being a little scruffy.

I would have sided with him more if he had come out and said he was angry in interviews, but aside from his interview with Piers Morgan, he hasn’t spoken publicly – or done an interview with the club. His managers, first Erik ten Hag and now Fernando Santos, have publicly expressed their displeasure with his behavior.

“I’m concerned about the impact he’ll have on other players if he refuses to join a team.” Ronaldo is a better player than that.

Portugal’s best performance of the tournament, a 6-1 victory over Switzerland, came without him, and they appeared much more mobile. Joao Felix and Bruno Fernandes came to life. This reminds me of United – they’re better when he’s not on the field..
