Ronaldo was pictured before the Aston Villa Premier League match talking to rising star Anthony Elanga.

The gesture attracted a lot of applause from Manchester United fans on social media.

Some described it as a father-son relationship that should help the Elanga blossom in his career as a young star.

His pep talk certainly has helped the Swede who opened Manchester United’s account against Brentford on Wednesday night.

Elanga scored from a teasing ball into his path by Brazilian midfield Fred which cleverly controlled before heading into the net.

The young striker who has been hailed by Ralf Rangnick and stand in captain Bruno Fernandes went on to play the entire game.

Ralf in his post match interview explained his decision to the media claiming nobody is bigger than the team.

Recent reports of divide within the Manchester United dress room required the experienced voices to come out to quell the brewing anarchy.

Ronaldo was one of those voices who everybody at the club would give a listening ear to.

His works at the club, with Real Madrid and Juventus make him a legend of the game, that deserves respect.

Did he lose it by going native on the interim coach Ralf Rangnick? There are those submitting it is his nature.

Sir Alex Ferguson questioned former Manchester United Ole Gunar Solskjaer for substituting Ronaldo at Everton.

It is without doubt the Portuguese superstar has been instrumental to the club. His goals are the reason Man United are in the knock out stages of the Champions League.

Does that make him an untouchable? Ronaldo needs to allow the coaches to do their job. There are already rumours about players questioning Ralf’s assistants.

How does Ronaldo’s actions of questioning the manager rub around the dressing room? Man Utd have disgruntled players in the dressing room who are not getting game time.

He needs to do better to understand the situation and try to make it better for the manager to fix the club’s problems.

Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard, Phil Jones, Van der Beek and Yuan Mata are some of the senior players at the club not getting playing time.

How do those players feel when they hear he shouldn’t be substituted? Football is supposed be a team game. Not about individuals.

The criticism being targeted at the team affects everyone at the club including the cooks in the kitchen. They do not want to serve food to disgruntled playing staff.

Ronaldo is reported to have left Juventus as a result of failing to bond well with some people at the club including fellow players.

His outbursts are said to have affected his relationship with some senior figures. Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chielini

have been vocal after the departure of the Man Utd superstar.

They accuse him of serving selfish interests rather than fighting the team goal.

Ronaldo needs to help himself by reducing some of his excesses at his beloved club or he might find himself isolated and seeking for a move away at the end of the season.
