Mark Goldbridge brands Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 'weak' over Cristiano Ronaldo comments
| Last updated
Manchester United fan and YouTuber Mark Goldbridge has blasted Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on the back of his recent interview.
Speaking to The Athletic, Solskjaer spoke about multiple topics.
The Norwegian spoke about the club’s decision to bring back legend Cristiano Ronaldo.
He said: “It was a decision that was very difficult to turn down and I felt we had to take it, but it turned out wrong. It felt so right when he signed and the fans felt that at that Newcastle game, when Old Trafford was rocking (after Ronaldo scored twice in a 4-1 win). He was still one of the best goalscorers in the world, he was looking strong.
“When you have a group you need everyone to pull in the same direction. When things didn’t go right, you could see certain players and egos came out. We beat Tottenham convincingly 3-0 away, but then we lost two games…”
However, Goldbridge has been left unimpressed by Solskjaer’s interview.
Taking to social media, the YouTuber wrote: “How can Ole say signing Ronaldo was wrong....he scored 18 Premier League goals & was player of the year in the worst United side in Premier League history. Singing like a canary because his Non Disclosure Order has run out and deflecting more than Captain America's shield.”
Ronaldo's second stint with United ended in bitter fahsion after his explosive tell-all interview with Piers Morgan. After having his contract terminated, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner became the first big name to ditch European football for Saudi Arabia.
Ronaldo signed for Saudi Professional League side Al Nassr in January and has since been joined by the likes of Sadio Mane, Aymeric Laporte and Marcelo Brozovic.
