While discussing Manchester United’s poor run of fixtures this season, Usain Bolt pointed out Cristiano Ronaldo’s contribution until now.

According to Usain Bolt, Cristiano Ronaldo has been rescuing Manchester United all the way since his arrival in the Premier League.

Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Red Devils have suffered from a devastating season so far with five wins, two draws, and four defeats in their first 11 matches.

Consequently, the Norwegian’s managerial position stays on the edge at the moment with the possibility of a switch sooner or later.

The former Jamaican athlete and a big Man Utd fan Bolt feels that the club should have brought Antonio Conte at Ole’s position when they had the opportunity.

A one-man show?

The eight-time Olympic gold medalist also acknowledged that Ronaldo has been the source of all the victorious that have come United’s way so far.

Bolt told The National News about the Italian boss: “He [Conte] has been at Chelsea – he won a title. He’s been at Inter Milan – he’s won a title. He’s been at Juve – he’s won a title.”

“Everywhere he goes, he structures the team so well. In January, he is probably going to get one or two players [in at Spurs], then at the end of the season he is probably going to find proper players and bring them in.”

Speaking on the Portuguese star’s influence at Old Trafford, he added: “We are going to struggle. Cristiano has saved us every game. One guy has to do all that work. We have not played good football in so long.”

“It is so relaxed. We pass so slowly. When Alex Ferguson was manager, we had to win because he would demand you win.”
