Ronaldo Couldn’t Hide Disappointment

AdminFebruary 9, 2022

LONDON: Cristiano Ronaldo once again expressed frustration at failing to score in five games in a row – the player’s longest goal drought in a decade early this morning.

The Manchester United star left the pitch immediately after the match when his side were tied 1-1 by Burnley.

He threw a white circle around his wrist as teammates remained on the field to pay their respects to their supporters.

The Portugal international has now gone five games without a goal – a goal drought that began after United’s 3-1 win over the Clarets on 30 December.

He was placed on the bench at Turf Moor before being included with the remaining 20 minutes of the match.

And he still hadn’t found the goal and was furious when the finishing whistle was blown which gave another disappointing result for the Red Devils.

Boss Ralf Rangnick found problems in his side before inserting Ronaldo when a draw seemed inevitable.

He told BT Sport: “It was 1-0 in the first half, we knew they would bounce back in the second half in a more aggressive way. One thing I can criticize the team for is that we weren’t aggressive enough in the 20 minutes of the second half.

“If you look at the whole game, we dominated most of the action. Winning one point wasn’t enough and it was another disappointing result.”
