Cristiano Ronaldo is said to have insisted that Manchester United play at a faster tempo in order for him to perform at his best.
Since coming to Old Trafford from Juventus in the summer transfer window, the Portugal international has scored five goals in five outings for the 20-time English champions.
According to ESPN, Ronaldo believes he could be even more effective at Manchester United, and he has asked head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to make the squad play faster in order to maximize his abilities.
The 36-year-old reportedly wants the Red Devils to ‘move the ball faster in offensive areas’ and become ‘sharper and quicker’ in the opposition’s half of the field, according to the article.
On September 11, Ronaldo made his second appearance for the club, scoring twice against Newcastle United in the Premier League before registering against West Ham United a week later.
The Portuguese striker has also scored in both of Solskjaer’s Champions League appearances this season, including the game-winning goal against Villarreal at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.
