Former Aston Villa striker, Gabby Agbonlahor, has said that Cristiano Ronaldo is ‘so frustrated’ at the moment at Manchester United after their derby defeat to rivals Manchester City on Saturday.
United defender, Eric Bailly scored an own goal in the 7th minute to give City the lead and Bernardo Silva doubled the lead in the second to Pep Guardiola’s side a well deserved 3 points at Old Trafford.
The defeat is coming just a fortnight after being thumped 5-0 by Liverpool.
Ronaldo looked isolated and dejected at times up front, earning a booking late on for a petulant challenge on Kevin De Bruyne for his troubles.
Agbonlahor insists the 36-year-old looks frustrated and dismissed claims he is ‘saving’ Solskjaer’s job, instead claiming the former Real Madrid man would rather be playing for City.
“I don’t think he is saving his job though, because there are talks that Conte didn’t even get asked for the job.
“There’s no one else that’s even been talked about, so I don’t think Ronaldo has saved his job.
“I just think Ronaldo is doing what he has been brought to do; score goals.
“You could see his frustration today. There was one clip where he booted the ball away, he keeps making fouls and getting yellow cards, it’s not like Ronaldo – he’s frustrated.
“He wants to be in that City team with De Bruyne putting in crosses in, he’s getting [Aaron] Wan-Bissaka, who keeps hitting the first man with every single cross.”
