While Pep Guardiola and Zinedine Zidane are doing brilliantly as new fresh-faced managers, Andrea Pirlo has become a high-profile disaster in Italy. Sherwood thinks that the time has come for Ronaldo to take the reins at Manchester United. But will Ronaldo actually ever do it? And what exactly would be his vision of a coaching role? Read on to find out.
Ronaldo is a ceiling-raising player
When he was a young man, Ronaldo was the definition of a “floor-raising” player. He could make a bad team great. Nowadays, though, his ceiling is higher. He is a highly regarded player but requires some compromises and concessions from his teammates. Only a few teams possess the make-up to support him. If Manchester United and Real Madrid are looking for a new superstar, the Portuguese may be a good option.
In the 2002-03 season, Ronaldo joined Real Madrid. Despite a difficult season for his new club, he continued to produce well, and his output rose. In the following two seasons, the club registered only 71 goals and 72 goals, respectively. Although Ronaldo is not a ‘perfect’ ceiling-raising player, he did raise the ceiling during these three seasons. However, it is also important to note that he is not a floor-raiser at this stage.
Despite his age, Ronaldo has developed his passing skills significantly. His ability to change directions was exceptional, and he possessed elite burst. He had the requisite physicality and agility to threaten the defender in transition. His off-ball work has never been as quick or consistent as his peak work, but his timing was better than most of his teammates’. The result? A ceiling-raising player.
A great player needs to have a range of attributes. Ronaldo had the physical tools to be an effective playmaker. His incredible athleticism allowed him to beat his opponent off the dribble and was a one-man counter-attack threat. With such high-speed and dazzling agility, he could shift the ball between his feet and make the defender miss. This allowed him to maintain a solo run in dangerous areas.
One of the most important characteristics of a ceiling-raising player is his ability to operate off the ball. He is able to create space for his teammates and offers them a shooting threat. The combination of his outstanding passing and aerial ability makes him an elite ceiling-raising player. If placed with other elite players, he can make the most of his talent. That is why he should be a key part of any team’s offense.
Ronaldo wants to coach
Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed that he wants to coach Manchester United one day, but the big question is how. After all, the Portuguese superstar only has a year left on his contract with the club. However, he’s clearly passionate about the club and is committed to the team, which could explain his desire to stay. If United do not win the Premier League this season, Ronaldo could be on his way out the door, but he’s not interested in leaving.
The club is still without a trophy in five years, with the club’s best chance of winning the Premier League coming from a top-four finish this season. It was believed that Ronaldo could help Manchester United close the gap to Liverpool, but they’ve been struggling to make any progress, and the Portuguese international has been linked with a coaching job. Ronaldo is keen on getting the job, despite his recent statements to the media.
While the club are still negotiating a transfer deal, there’s a possibility that he’ll head to an American club for a chance to coach a major European club. Chelsea, under new American owner Todd Boehly, have been linked with Ronaldo, as Boehly has met with the agent who represents him. The club could also be a good fit for Ronaldo, since the team is close to signing Raheem Sterling.
After the summer, United should have made it clear that they would like Ronaldo to stay at the club. However, the club would be foolish to let him go as the relationship between Ronaldo and his new manager would be the center of attention. That could cause the new manager to collapse. Real Madrid would not want their new manager to fail. If Ronaldo does not leave, they could lose their star player to a better team.
In the summer, United were reportedly interested in keeping Cristiano for a second season. He’s still on the United payroll until June 2023, but his camp did have other plans. According to Manu Sainz, Ronaldo would like to stay at the club for a second season. A second season at Old Trafford would be great for his CV. A new season in the Champions League would be a fantastic way to add more trophies to his trophy cabinet.
However, Ronaldo’s future at the club is not entirely rosy. The side needs a serious overhaul. Although he’s lethal in the air and an excellent finisher, United’s current squad appears directionless and disjointed. Meanwhile, Anthony Martial and Edison Cavani are on the way out. Furthermore, Marcus Rashford’s form dipped this season. The uncertain future of Mason Greenwood may complicate his future as well.
Ronaldo believes young players should be more focused
A new article on Premier League Productions suggests that some young players should be more focused and ask for help instead of being arrogant and spoiled. According to the GOAT, young players who are eager to learn and ask for help have a higher chance of success not just in football but in life. It is also possible for talented players to be overlooked because they are not committed to a training routine. However, Ronaldo is not so sure.
Like any successful person, Cristiano Ronaldo has always strived to win. This was his primary motivation. In fact, he trained like he was playing in a match, never missing a single session. He also made it a point to put in the extra time, sometimes practicing as many as three times a day. But where did this extreme desire originate? Interestingly, there is no clear answer to this question, but one thing is for sure: the desire to be the best is not something that can be taught in school. It comes from within.
Despite his enviable talent and fame, he is frustrated with the pampered United players. Ronaldo believes he should spend more time training the young players. Younger players should learn from the experienced ones, who often cling to his every word. He also feels that younger players should be more focused. He used to hang on his teammates’ every word. It’s time for the younger generation to take the reins at the club and prove themselves.
To succeed in the world of football, one must take action. Take the initiative and start focusing on improving your ball control. If you want to improve your confidence and ball control, you have to act. And to get better at these, you must practice and improve. Take action. It’s the only way to see progress. It’s not enough to read articles on how to become a better player. There’s a solution.
