‘Finished’ Cristiano Ronaldo produces ugly miss as Man Utd star’s frustrations persist

‘Finished’ Cristiano Ronaldo produces ugly miss as Man Utd star’s frustrations persist

After missing a sitter against Omonia in the Europa League, Cristiano Ronaldo was mercilessly vilified on social media.

The Portugal international made a rare Manchester United  start but failed to make an impact. The Red Devils triumphed, but not completely, in a 3-2 victory in Cyprus.

And Ronaldo had a chance to seal the game at 2-1 after Diogo Dalot squared the ball to him in front of an open goal. But he somehow missed the target, instead lashing a shot against the post.

It led to a wild retort on social media with one saying: “How did Ronaldo miss this. They should just accept it, he is finished.”

“Ronaldo is finished he missed a tap in,” another wrote.

And a third said: “Ronaldo is not the same Ronaldo we know.”

This supporter wrote: “Ronnie is finito sadly.”

Ronaldo’s miss did not prove fatal for the Red Devils, who went on to defeat Omonia 3-2 in the Europa League. 

Despite earning a starting spot, the Portuguese forward was overshadowed by Marcus Rashford.

The England international came on at halftime and scored twice to give the Cypriots three points in Nicosia. Anthony Martial, who came on in the second half, also scored.

Rashford said: “Job done, but we would have liked to have played better. We didn’t defend badly, but we made mistakes.

“The first 35 minutes until they scored we were playing well, we just could have got in behind them more. Then when he made the subs he [Erik ten Hag] wanted us to be more dynamic, take chances going forward and score goals.
