EPL: Rashford, Two Other Man Utd Stars Blamed For Cristiano Ronaldo’s Goal Drought

Must read

Former England striker, Dean Ashton, has criticized Manchester United stars, Marcus Rashford, Diogo Dalot and Luke Shaw for their poor service to Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ashton said this while defending Ronaldo for failing to score a goal in his last six matches for Manchester United.

Ronaldo, 37, is currently experiencing his longest goal drought since the 2008-2009 campaign.

The Portugal captain has failed to score in all competitions since scoring in the 3-1 win over Burnley on December 30, 2021.

But Ashton instead pointed the blame at Rashford, Dalot and Shaw.

“It is not his fault for a start,” Ashton told talkSPORT. “He is getting angry because the service is that bad.

“When you buy [Cristiano] Ronaldo, you don’t buy the player that he was ten years ago, you buy the player that he’s now. You watch Juve, he did not take three or four players on then smash it in. He did not score goals from outside the area.

“His game was inside the area. Great movement, sharp movement, delivery, goal. Sight of the goal, back of the net. Manchester United are playing every other way except what is needed for him and to get the best out of him.

“Why do they not give him the service he needs? Rashford, why does he persist in trying to knuckleball every cross? He just knuckleballs it to the first player.

“Why are Dalot and Shaw crossing from really deep, when it gives Ronaldo less opportunity to get on the end of it and beat a defender?

“This is a guy with an unbelievable leap and he has not scored a Premier League header. What? They are not giving him the service.”
