Man United labelled an 'embarrassment' by pundit after Cristiano Ronaldo report
Frank McAvennie has suggested some Man United players are no longer proud to play for the club.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former West Ham striker suggested United stars should be listening to Cristiano Ronaldo about how to solve the club’s problems.
According to Spanish outlet AS (1 August), the 37-year-old wants to find a new club before the Red Devils’ opening Premier League game on Sunday (7 August).
The Portugal international made his return to Erik ten Hag’s side for their pre-season friendly against Rayo Vallecano on Sunday (31 July).
The striker has one year left on his contract at Old Trafford but is said to be keen on a move away from the club.
McAvennie suggested it is Ronaldo’s teammates that are the real problem.

“Ronaldo has said the players are no longer interested in playing for Man United,” he told Football Insider.
“How embarrassing is that? If I was in that dressing room I would be wanting to prove him wrong.
“Nobody seems to be interested anymore. I had a lot of pride when I was a player, everybody around me was proud to wear the jersey. Do they have that at Man United? I don’t know.
“By all accounts the way Ronaldo’s acting, they haven’t, they’ve not got that pride anymore. If I was in that dressing room I’d be asking Ronaldo how to sort it, but obviously nobody is listening.“
