“I don’t want to hear it.” Rio Ferdinand orders Jamie Carragher to stop talking about Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo’s after pressing comments

 “I don’t want to hear it.” Rio Ferdinand orders Jamie Carragher to stop talking about Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo’s after pressing comments

Rio Ferdinand, a former Manchester United defender, has slammed former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher and asked him to stop talking about Cristiano Ronaldo’s ability to press.

According to the Red Devils legend, the club does not look any better without the Portuguese on the bench.

After a slow start to the season, Manchester United has risen to fifth in the Premier League table with 15 points from eight games.

They were thrashed 6-3 by Manchester City earlier this month, but bounced back to win 2-1 at Everton on Sunday, with Ronaldo scoring the game-winning goal.

Ferdinand stated on his YouTube channel FIVE that the narrative must come to an end. He backed up his former teammate, saying:

“People say he doesn’t press. If he doesn’t press, I will take that argument on the chin and say you are right if other people came in and they looked completely different with the way they press.”

In response to Carragher, the former Queens Park Rangers defender said:

“This team looks no better or worse when Ronaldo is playing or not when they’re pressing to retrieve the ball, there is no difference. Take that argument out of your mouth, all these people that keep talking about it, Jamie Carragher, you’re another one, I don’t want to hear it.”

Rio Ferdinand claimed he went insane after Cristiano Ronaldo scored the game-winning goal against Everton, adding that he was being disrespected by too many people.

He said:

“I went nuts when that goal went in because I see too many people disrespecting Cristiano Ronaldo and saying he’s the problem. You can’t be the problem in a team when you are the one scoring 24 to 26 goals last season.

“I saw a stat the other day. With Haaland, as good as he is doing and we are all going crazy about him and rightly so, for the next 15 years or 16 seasons he’s got to score 43 plus goals per season to get to that number, that just puts in into perspective.”

Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal against Everton was his first in the Premier League this season, and only his second overall. It was also significant for the Portuguese star because it marked his 700th club goal of his career.
