Ronaldo’s impressive goal against Vallecano

The fact that Cristiano Ronaldo left Juventus last summer made the Old Lady difficult to score goals. Despite signing Dusan Vlahovic in January, centre-back  Matthijs De Ligt thinks it’s too late to compete for the title.

The Dutchman said: “Because it was too late, we couldn’t bring in someone like Dusan Vlahovic to come back immediately. We definitely missed that from the start.”

 Ronaldo is still Man Utd’s main striker despite his low form in recent times.

Although the Man United superstar has only scored one goal in the last 10 games, Ronaldo still leads the charts for goals at Old Trafford and it is worth noting that he has 6 goals in as many Champions League games this season. Recently, there have been rumors that Ronaldo wants to leave the club at the end of the season. 

“It’s hard to say that I don’t want more, because if I’m at a club that gives me the opportunity to win more, why not? And in the national team too,” Ronaldo said in a statement. interview with DAZN.

And despite having five Balls, De Ligt believes Vlahovic can help fill the void left by Ronaldo.

“When I played against him [Vlahovic], I noticed how strong and technically good he is,” continued De Ligt.

“And what particularly attracted me was that he was so eager to score; he almost yelled at his teammates when he didn’t get the ball. You need such an attacking player up front.”
