Cristiano Ronaldo is said to be ‘annoying’ Manchester United’s players because he wants to ‘lead’ the team. This season, the Portugal international has scored 15 goals in all competitions, the most of any player at Old Trafford.

However, it looks like a schism is forming behind the scenes.

When the No. 7 returned, there were strong expectations that he, along with other newcomers Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane, would be able to help the squad fight for the Premier League crown.
However, with the Red Devils already 20 points behind Manchester City, that hasn’t happened.
