Former Wales striker, Dean Saunders has said that Cristiano Ronaldo is playing with dummies as teammates at Manchester United.
He said this following Manchester Unitedâ€™s disappointing 1-1 draw against Burnley that left Manchester United outside the top four.
Burnley striker, Rodriguez cancelled out Paul Pogbaâ€™s first half opener for United, a result that now puts West Ham in fourth place while United dropped to fifth.
Ronaldo came on as a 68th minute substitute in the game but Rangnickâ€™s decision to drop the superstar on the bench did not pay dividends.
And Saunders was impressed by Unitedâ€™s forward group, but felt they were being let down by the rest of the team.
â€œAt one point they shouldâ€™ve been 3-0 up, they were running away with it,â€ Saunders told talkSPORT.
â€œThen the minute they get a bit of adversity they seem to go backwards and crumble.
â€œIf you asked Ronaldo, â€˜Whoâ€™s the worst midfield player youâ€™ve ever played with in your career?â€™ Fred and [Scott] McTominay wonâ€™t be far off.
â€œPeople are starting to point the finger at Ronaldo, but heâ€™s playing with a few dummies, some of them are not on the same wavelength as him.
â€œEvery time the ball was shifted around the box and they were piling the pressure on Burnley the ball was going to a really good player, to Pogba, to Rashford, to Lingard, Ronaldo, theyâ€™ve got ammunition.
â€œTheyâ€™ve got a bang-average back four and no engine room in the middle of the pitch, the players theyâ€™ve got in there are not up to the standard,â€ he said.
