Cristiano Ronaldo has asked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to change Manchester United's tactics in order to suit his style of play following a blistering start to his second spell at the club.


Ronaldo scored his fifth goal in all competitions since returning to Man United on Wednesday.

He bagged a dramatic winner against Villarreal in the Champions League to secure three points in a come-from-behind victory.

Despite being prolific this season, he has told Solskjaer to change Man United's style of play.

According to ESPN, the 36-year-old wants the team to move the ball quicker in attacking areas to get the best out of him on the pitch.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has made it clear to the Norwegian boss and his coaches that he can further increase his goal return if they become sharper and quicker when distributing the ball in the final third.

The report continues by stating that work is ongoing on the training pitch to get the ball to Ronaldo quicker as Solskjaer hopes to make his side more ruthless.

What's more, sources also said that United's coaching team want the defensive players to contribute in the style of play by getting the ball to the attackers more quickly.

The likes of Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes and Mason Greenwood have been crucial in the team's attacking play, but Man United want more out of them in order to feed Ronaldo, who has been clinical up front.

Ronaldo and Co resume their Premier League campaign on Saturday when they host Everton.
