Angry Ronaldo ties Greenwood to his shell with fury when he should be mentoring wonderkid

CRISTIANO RONALDO has been very critical of attitude this week – maybe he should practice what he preaches.

Let’s just say he’s not a shining example of what a team needs in this crucial encounter in the battle for fourth place and next season’s Champions League spot.

Cristiano Ronaldo once again cuts a disappointing figure at the time against West Ham

He loves to play the blame game when things don’t go well, both on and off the pitch.

Comment on this match against West Ham.

It took just four minutes for him to start clapping with 20-year-old Mason Greenwood, a striker in need of some confidence at the moment.

His mistake was to rely on his instinctive two-footed scoring talent by cutting in and shooting.

It didn’t emit, it was charged

But does it really need Ronaldo swinging his arms warily that the ball should have been passed to him.

Greenwood tried another shot on goal in the ninth minute but failed to find the target.

This time, Ronaldo raised an arm in the air to say that he should give him a deep pass.

Then again in the 15th minute, Greenwood passed a ball forward, but Ronaldo signaled that he wanted it to his feet.

It was a lively opener when Greenwood won the ball but from that point on he went into his shell.

Ronaldo should have encouraged, set an example.

It was an example when he was sent off against Brentford in the middle of the week and had a strop is very public.

Take another look and see Greenwood watching curiously from the back of the previously dug hole.

Ronaldo has been making some young players feel threatened.

They were wary of trusting their own instincts in the event of a mistake, fearful of not conveying to Ronaldo the response they might have received, and Greenwood got it.

But Ronaldo doesn’t reserve his obvious displeasure for easy goals like Greenwood.

There was a moment in just half an hour when West Ham cleared the ball and Harry Maguire headed forward.

Ronaldo was in an offside position so the header was wasted.

Ronaldo told Maguire to calm it down. He clearly has to keep possession while keeping possession.

The real problem was the fact that Ronaldo ambushed back. Had he been more alert and ran to the inside, he could have taken advantage of the header and swerved towards goal.

After Ronaldo’s attitude interview, there were calls to take the captain’s armband from Maguire’s hand and give it to Ronaldo.

This game suggests it should be in the hands of the £80m centre-back.

This is a big test for Maguire.

He has been on the bench for the last two games after missing an injury.

Manager Ralf Rangnick explained to him before the game against Brentford that Victor Lindelof and Raphael Varane looked too good as a partnership for him to regain his place.

He won that back in the game against The Hammers, with Lindelof taking time off from breaking into his house, so the pressure is on.

Maguire reads the ball superbly, comes forward to intercept, time his headers and tackles – except when he brings down Jarrod Bowen and sees him being placed.

Time and time again he predicts situations to move forward and win those high balls.

He fell on one occasion and looked like he felt that rib, but he kept playing.

Sometimes he puts himself forward and plays even when it’s not appropriate, and his own individual performance can suffer but that’s the way he is.

He is a team captain.

The win depended heavily on him as the injury-time winner from Marcus Rashford, another was finding form again.
