EPL: Why did I re-join Man United – Keown makes claim on Cristiano Ronaldo


Arsenal legend, Martin Keown, has claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo is questioning his decision to re-join Manchester United.

Keown said this while reacting to Man United’s Premier League 1-0 defeat to Everton on Saturday.

Man United suffered a surprise defeat to Everton at Goodison Park, following Anthony Gordon’s first-half goal.

Ralf Rangnick’s side struggled to create many clear-cut chances against the host, with Ronaldo a frustrated figure up front for the Red Devils.

“Disappointing from a Manchester United point of view, Fernandes as well – the one you expect to play the passes, not coming off for him.

“I think that [running out of ideas] comes from the manager with the changes that he’s made.

“I have seen [Juan] Mata come on, it’s almost like there are too many passers on the pitch right now.

“[Marcus] Rashford came off. You want someone who’s going to stretch the game, [Anthony] Elanga’s done nothing since he’s been on.

“Ronaldo, I think he’s looking around him and thinking, “Why did I come here?” It’s not what they expected at all,” Keown told BT Sport.

Ronaldo rejoined Man United last summer from Juventus
