Manchester United coach Ralf Rangnick has called for Cristiano Ronaldo and his attacking teammates to find their goalscoring touch in order to avoid further frustrating results.
United crashed out of the FA Cup last Friday against Middlesbrough, losing on penalties following a 1-1 draw having had 30 shots at goal in the match, before then amassing 22 further efforts at Burnley in another 1-1 draw on Tuesday. Ronaldo missed a penalty and had 10 shots at goal in total against Middlesbrough without finding the net, before missing a late header at Burnley.
“It’s not only about Cristiano Ronaldo,” Rangnick told a news conference on Friday ahead of United’s weekend clash with Southampton.
“It’s an issue with the other players too, especially the offensive players. We don’t score enough goals, if you bear in mind how many chances we create, and this is also something that needs to get better in the next couple of weeks.”
