Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted the he is not happy with the dressing situation at Manchester United and there needs to be a turning point.
The 36-year-old , who completed an emotional Old Trafford return at the end of the summer window, has now urged his team-mates to use the new year as the perfect opportunity to start afresh and right the wrongs from the first half of the campaign.
“2021 is coming to an end and it was far from being an easy year, despite my 47 goals scored across all competitions,” he wrote on Instagram.
“At Juventus, I was proud to win the Italian Cup and the Italian Supercup, and become the Série A Top Scorer.
“For Portugal, becoming the Euro Top Scorer was also a high point this year. And of course, my return to Old Trafford will always be one of the most iconic moments in my career.
“But I’m not happy with what we are achieving in Man. United. None of us are happy, I’m sure of that.
“We know that we have to work harder, play better and deliver way more than we are delivering right now.”
He continued: “Let’s make this New Year’s Eve a turning point of the season! Let’s embrace 2022 with a higher spirit and a stronger mentality.
“Let’s take us above and beyond, let’s reach for the stars and put this club right where it belongs!
“Join us, we’re counting on all of you! Happy New Year and see you soon!”
Ronaldo and his Red Devil team-mates will be back in action on January 3, when they take on Wolves at Old Trafford, before a full week off gives Rangnick valuable time on the Carrington training pitches.
