Bringing C. Ronaldo Back Was The Wrong Decision- Ex-man United Boss Solskjaer by AImiron: 12:13pm On Sep 20, 2023
Ole Gunnar Solskjær has admitted that signing Cristiano Ronaldo when he was the Manchester United manager “felt right but was wrong” and that he was let down by the egos of unnamed players whose failure to pull together presaged his sacking.

The Norwegian was in charge of United from 19 December 2018 until 21 November 2021, losing his position follow

In summer 2021 Ronaldo joined the club for a second time at the age of 35. While the Portuguese scored twice against Newcastle in his opening game, a 4-1 victory, his addition unbalanced Solskjær’s team and after scoring nine times before the trip to Watford, the Norwegian lost his job.

It was a decision that was very difficult to turn down and I felt we had to take it, but it turned out wrong,” Solskjær told The Athletic (£). “It felt so right when he signed and the fans felt that at that Newcastle game, when Old Trafford was rocking. He was still one of the best goalscorers in the world, he was looking strong.”


In late October United lost 5-0 to Liverpool at Old Trafford and despite winning away 3-0 at Tottenham the following week, losses to Manchester City and Watford sealed Solskjær’s fate. “When I looked at the fixtures it was going to be a deciding period,” he said.

When things didn’t go right, you could see certain players and egos come out. We beat Tottenham convincingly 3-0 away, but then we lost two games.”
Solskjær stated some of his squad had inflated views of themselves”.


They weren’t as good as their own perception of themselves,” he said. “I won’t name names, but I was very disappointed when a couple turned down the chance to be captain. I was also disappointed when others said they wouldn’t play or train because they wanted to force their way out.”

Erik ten Hag, Solskjær’s replacement after the interim appointment of Ralf Rangnick, is enduring a tough start to the season, as United have lost three of their opening five matches. “I know what he’s going through. It’s a dream job, but it’s difficult,” said Solskjær. “You’re dealing with humans with all their problems and backgrounds – this isn’t a computer simulation. But most are good professionals who want to do well. Some think about No 1 first, most think of the club.”

Another trashy post.

Ronaldo coming to Man utd lifted the lid on the average allowances in the team.

Ronaldo going to any team is an upliftment to the team.

Till today, Ole has not seen a team yet... However he's better than 7Hag though

Ronaldo ruined Juventus. Prior to his coming to Juventus, they were a force to recon with. They were always at the Semis or finals of the champions league. In Ronaldo’s first season, Juventus were disgraced and eliminated by Ajax in the rounds of 16. The subsequent seasons, they couldn’t make it past the rounds of 16. He left the club and since then, the club has been plummeting like a mango. He went to Manchester United, but too much pride couldn’t let him play team football. He destroyed the club and left. Now Manchester United still struggling to go past the chaos Ronaldo brought.
Having been rejected by every European team, Sporting, Chelsea, Bayern. Even Reno Stars rejected his asss. Finally, he got a call from camel league that has maggots on all the chairs in the stadium, he accepted with his full chest. Engineer factos.

Sir Alex Ferguson should take full responsibility. Ronaldo deal was simply to block their rival (Man City) from getting him, imagine Ronaldo under Pep. The weyrey for score pass Haaland self, but Ferguson and Man UTD played smart in their minds and it ended in premium tears for UTD and Ronaldo.

Obembet, where una dey? Abi na only for Messi matter you dey show face?

I have never seen people so obsessed about Ronaldo like Messi fans ... they will still say they don't care about Ronaldo.... but any Ronaldo news , they carry it that a jobless fellow in a local bar looking for free beer while talking nonsense politics....

U don't blame ferrari if u don't know how to handle it after buying it ... PSG can as well regret buying Messi, but Ronaldo fans don't care cos we know Ronaldo is the greatest to have played the game


He left Manchester United but its still a shitty club.... besides he dint only blame Ronaldo, he said the older players due to egos ...but this freak of a nature decided to twist the story to fit his psychotic thoughts

Below is what Mike phelan , former United assistant coach under solkjaer said ...

Sentiments aside...

It was a huge mistake..

Same with Lukaku's return to chelsea...

And most recently, Kai Havertz to Arsenal...

Sometimes I wonder if these coaches/scouts receive kick-backs from the buy/sale of players.

Oh, well. I’m a passive Liverpool-Reds supporter so that’s that. Ronaldo gets signposted here, there and everywhere and that’s his prerogative.

Same players are about to sack your successor...! Alongside the useless owners.


Every great coach should totally avoid that club like a plague.
