Portugal icon, Cristiano Ronaldo is widely considered to be one of the greatest players in the history of the sport, with the striker winning numerous professional and individual honours during his career so far, including five Ballon d'Or awards.

Manchester United created headlines earlier in the summer when they confirmed that Ronaldo would be returning to Old Trafford after a gap of 12 years, with many hailing the move as a chance for United to challenge for trophies this season.

The 36-year-old has lived up to his reputation since his return, scoring six goals in nine games so far and since his move away from Real Madrid in 2018, Ronaldo has notched an astonishing 107 goals in 143 games.

Following United 5-0 hammering at the hands of Liverpool, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's job has come under the scanner and now it has emerged that following his departure from Madrid - he has played under three different managers at Juventus prior to his Old Trafford switch - Massimiliano Allegri, Maurizio Sarri and Andrea Pirlo - and none of them lasted longer than a year after Ronaldo's arrival.

While this has got to nothing with Ronaldo's heroics on the pitch, it simply seems to be the case of the team's overall performances not matching that of the serial winner.
