Man Utd told signing Cristiano Ronaldo was 'not clever' and Marcus Rashford 'is lost'

Manchester United’s decision to re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo last summer was “not a clever move” and the board should take the blame for their mistake, according to Charlie Nicholas.The Portuguese superstar has scored eight goals in 17 Premier League games, with a further six goals coming in five outings in the Champions League.But the 36-year-old has endured a frustrating second spell at Old Trafford after finding life difficult under interim coach Ralf Rangnick.The Man United star was hauled off after just 70 minutes on the clock in the 3-1 win over Brentford, leaving the five-time Ballon d’Or winner furious on the United bench.Ronaldo demanded an explanation from Rangnick after quizzing the German on why he was brought off, with the 63-year-old tactician later insisting he was thinking ahead for future matches.But the incident is only the latest hiccup in a series of events which has led many to question whether Ronaldo made the right decision in returning to Manchester after 12 years away at Real Madrid and Juventus.And Arsenal legend Nicholas believes their reunion never should have happened, especially considering Ronaldo's advancing years.
