Pundit: Ronaldo will 'force out' Man United star and 'I feel sorry for him'
Cristiano Ronaldo will be fuming with Aaron Wan-Bissaka at Man United, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England attacker admitted he had sympathy for Wan-Bissaka who looks out of his depth at Old Trafford.
The right-back has not missed a minute of action this term but is yet to register a goal or an assist.
He began the season on the right of a back four but has featured at right wing-back in recent weeks.
Asked whether Man United’s back-five system exposed Wan-Bissaka, Agbonlahor told Football insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “I think it’s in a back four or a back five.
“In a back four nowadays, the right-back has got to get forward and put crosses in. Wan-Bissaka can’t do that.

“I actually feel sorry for him. It’s not his fault. He’s not a modern-day full-back. He’s an old school full-back who is there to tackle and pass the ball on.
“In my early days at Villa that’s what he had. We didn’t have players that were great at crossing. It was, you win the ball, get it to Stuart Downing, James Milner or Ashley Youg.
“Football has changed. As a right-back, you need to be good on the ball. Unfortunately for Wan-Bissaka, he’s not and there’s nothing he can do.
“Man United will eventually bring in a right-back who can cross the ball. The amount of times Ronaldo makes a run and doesn’t get the ball. It must be so frustrating for Ronaldo.
“It’s not Wan-Bissaka’s fault, it’s just not his game. Ronaldo could ultimately end up forcing him out.”
