The Portuguese’s arrival at Old Trafford raises even more selection issues, but his former team-mate is backing him to have a positive impact
Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival back at Manchester United has given Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a “luxury problem”, the Portugal international’s former team-mate Dimitar Berbatov believes.
Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford, coupled with the arrival of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund this summer, as well as Edinson Cavani signing a one-year contract extension, means Solskjaer now has a raft of options to choose from in attacking areas.
With Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial also vying for opportunities, the Red Devils’ boss must now work out how he is going to keep all of his forward players happy while juggling his pack effectively so as to win games.
How well he does that could determine how successful United are this season, and Berbatov feels the task ahead of him is “near impossible”.
