Antonio Cassano wants Cristiano Ronaldo to retire from the national team. The forward played very badly in the recent international break.
He is also now not getting to start games for Manchester United. However, every football fan will hope to see him in this year’s World Cup in Qatar.
THE STRUGGLE OF CRISTIANO RONALDO BEFORE THE START OF THE WORLD CUP
Antonio Cassano has recommended Ronaldo to retire from the national team. The forward failed to have any positive impact in the recent international matches. Hence, Cassano wants him to retire to avoid playing the World Cup on the bench. However, it is unlikely that Ronaldo will be paying any attention to such opinions.
“At this point, Cristiano should do himself a favor and understand that if you don’t reach a certain level, you should close the shop. He won everything, he was a phenomenon. Stop! You have to stop or you’ll only run into the bench.”.
The former Real Madrid forward also said that the legendary forward is now not scoring goals for fun like in his younger days.
THE PORTUGUESE FORWARD IS ALSO STRUGGLING AT MANCHESTER UNITED
Cristiano Ronaldo is also struggling at Manchester United. The striker was absent for almost the whole of the pre-season. The reason for the absence was due to personal reasons. However, many reports suggested that the forward wanted to leave United. It is because United failed to qualify for the Champions League this season.
However, they are finally doing well under Erik Ten Hag. Erik Ten Hag has also said that Ronaldo remains in his plans for the season. However, the forward will not get an easy chance on the team. The forward will have to earn his chance to start games under Erik Ten Hag. The report also claims that many players are impressed with the way Ten Hag is dealing with the Cristiano Ronaldo situation.
Therefore, Cristiano Ronaldo will have to start playing well before the start of the World Cup. If he does not play well, there are chances that the forward will be a substitute in the World Cup. Whereas, his competitor Lionel Messi will continue to score goals for fun with the Argentinian national team and PSG.
