Manchester United are in a state to forget at the moment. The Old Trafford outfit have failed to win three consecutive matches this term, with serious question marks hanging over the team.
The Red Devils are chasing a top-four place in the Premier League to qualify for the Champions League next season.
Manchester United have unravelled completely as the mismanagement under the ineffectual Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wilts under the spotlight.
The Red Devils have seen many players fail to perform at optimum standards with accusations made against several players.
With Cristiano Ronaldo accused as one of the problems in the squad, the Portuguese have in his defence questioned the suitability of interim manager Ralf Rangnick for Manchester United.
Ralf Rangnick has received knocks and kudos from various quarters for his performance with the club so far. It was an unusually quiet January transfer window for Manchester United, but Ronaldo has knocked the German coach.
The Portuguese player does not think Ralf Rangnick is good enough to manage Man Utd.
Ronaldo has 14 goals from 26 appearances for Manchester United this season but is currently going through a goal drought. He is the top scorer for the Red Devils but is way below his lofty standards.
CR7 has failed to score in his last six appearances for Manchester United. It is his longest goal drought since 2010.
Reports in England suggest a dressing room unrest at Manchester United. Rangnick has denied reports of unrest at United, but the rumours have gained ground.
Reports claim Cristiano Ronaldo is unhappy at Old Trafford and wants to return to Real Madrid in the summer. It is unlikely that Los Blancos, who rejected the opportunity to sign him earlier, would take him in the summer.
Manchester United have won only two games in their last six Premier League outings. The run includes three draws and a loss. On Saturday, the Red Devils were held to a draw at Old Trafford by Southampton in the Premier League.
The 1-1 draw with the Saints came after they were knocked out of the FA Cup by Championship side Middlesbrough and another to relegation strugglers Burnley.
The results have seen Ralf Rangnick and his players come under criticism. Following the accusations, Spanish publication AS reports that Ronaldo believes that Ralf Rangnick is not at the level to manage Manchester United.
Rangnick had told reporters before the Southampton game that Ronaldo should score more goals, a statement that has drawn the ire of the Portuguese player. It has fractured the relationship between the two, with Ronaldo firing his salvo at the manager.
Meanwhile, Brighton boss Graham Potter believes in the qualities of Cristiano Ronaldo. The Brighton boss looks forward to the first meeting with Ronaldo. Potter enthused the Portuguese player is world-class, and there is nothing to contradict that.
