he had to be 36 to cash in on this disappointment

Manchester United’s home defeat to Wolverhampton saw Cristiano Ronaldo having to swallow another bitter mouthful.

The Manchester United this year is a puzzle that appears unsolvable also for the analytical logic of Ralf Rangnick, who took over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the end of November. The 1-0 home defeat to Wolverhampton interrupts the Red Devils’ streak of consecutive useful results and plunges them to more than 20 points behind their City cousins, who by mid-season already seem to have killed the Premier League.

A truly disappointing performance that of CR7 and his teammates, who managed to hit the opposing goal only twice in the 90 minutes. The climate is not the best in the locker room and De Gea’s outburst on the pitch against the Portuguese proves it. The evening also saw Ronaldo collect another disappointment, in addition to the fact that he was aware that he had probably made the wrong choice last summer, when he decided to leave Juventus to return to United after 12 years.

It was the first time that Cristiano wore the captain’s armband of the Red Devils in his second adventure in Manchester. Although he usually does so in the national team, on Sunday he was captain only for the eleventh time in his career with clubs: on the occasion suffered his first ever defeat. Yet another blow to an ego like that of the five-time Golden Ball that this year has already had to swallow several bitter mouthfuls, barely gilded by having still scored 14 goals in 22 games, of which 6 in 5 Champions League matches League: decisive goals to carry United by weight to the round of 16, where they will meet Atletico Madrid.

Ronaldo knows that time is running fast for him, who will turn 37 next February. Winning now or immediately tomorrow: this is the imperative of the Portuguese cannibal, whose contract with Manchester United will expire in June 2023.
