Tony Cascarino, former Ireland international forward, felt that Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes did not fit into the same team.
“Soulsjour knew who he was bringing in, and he was waiting for the players to adjust to what Ronaldo needed.
The situation is the same as in Portugal in European countries: Ronaldo and Fernandes are not working on the same side. The team makes it very easy for rivals, he added.
For Cascarino, the two Portuguese players are not so intense under pressure, which punishes the team’s defensive process. The solution is to give up one of them, he said, adding that the sacrificial element, in his opinion, cannot be Ronaldo because he is “one of the best players of all time”. “People say Ronaldo is not pushing hard enough and he will not work without the ball, but he is an influential player like no other. This (minor stress) has happened in the past. Berbatov is not someone who follows the ball. But the problem is not one player, but two or three, he said.
Cascarino says the solution is to give Edinson Cavani the title for Ronaldo, as he was once Benzema for the Portuguese at Real Madrid. At PSG he did ‘dirty work’ for Neymar and Mbabane. Lingard is also an option. Fernandes may be technically better, but Lingard will do the dirty work and create opportunities. SoulsJair has several options. The worst of them is leaving Ronaldo, the 59-year-old former footballer who has played for Ireland 88 times and at the 1990 and 1994 World Cups and Euro 88.
