Insight provided into Cristiano Ronaldo’s efforts to ‘raise spirits’ at Man United
Word stemming from the English media on Thursday suggests that Cristiano Ronaldo has begun making a concerted effort to keep team morale up at Manchester United.
Salah leads Reds rout
The week to date has of course seen ongoings on the red half of Manchester take centre stage in the headlines.
This comes on the back of one of the darkest days in the long and storied history of United.
After securing just a solitary point from their prior two Premier League outings, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and co. welcomed arch rivals Liverpool to Old Trafford last Sunday, eyeing a return to winning ways.
When all was said and done at the Theatre of Dreams, however, to say that such efforts came up short would be putting it lightly.
A performance which could be described as nothing short of embarrassing ultimately saw the hosts put to the sword by five goals to nil, courtesy of a Mo Salah-inspired Liverpool.

CR7 steps up
In turn, it is safe to say that the last 96 hours at Manchester United have proven of an altogether tumultuous nature.
With rampant speculation surrounding the future of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, for the time being at least, having died down, though, an insight into the efforts of one member of the Red Devils’ playing squad to keep spirits high has today been provided.
The man in question? Cristiano Ronaldo.
As per a report from Andy Mitten of The Athletic, 5-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo has begun speaking to players individually to raise morale.
Not only that, but the veteran hitman has been keen to let the less experienced members of Solskjaer’s squad know exactly what is required to be a winner in the colours of Manchester United:
