Man Utd: Ronaldo's Luck, Jones Warns Young Players, Rashford's Return is a Major Boost

Phil Jones

Manchester United defender Phil Jones has advised young upcoming players to not pay attention to online critics because it will make their life hard in football. Jones said that keyboard warriors are sources of depression to many players and therefore any immediate attention given to them is detrimental to a player’s morale on the pitch. He added that online platforms should be more vigilant to those who are abusing others on social media so that the vice can be stemmed out completely.

Jones shared his sentiments after announcing that he will no longer be active on social media and that he will soon delete his social media accounts so that he can have peace as he nears his retirement. Manchester United have always been at the forefront in fighting online abuse but recent events have overwhelmed the club’s measures of mitigating the growing cases.

Marcus Rashford

Marcus Rashford’s return will spark a new challenge in the club and this will provide healthy competition to some of the attackers in the squad. With Jadon Sancho yet to find his scoring boots, Marcus Rashford might just be the ultimate trigger to Sancho’s scoring magic. Jesse Lingard will also be required to pull up his socks because he will be competing even harder for playing minutes

Rashford finished last season with 36 goal involvements and fans expect him to better his record this season because he no longer has an injury on his shoulder. Going forward, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be keen to get out the best from the player as he seeks to be a serious contender for the league title.

Cristiano Ronaldo

According to records, Cristiano Ronaldo has never failed to win a trophy in 10 years and fans are hoping that he will import his luck to Manchester United this season. The Red Devils have not won a trophy in 3 years and this has been a worrying record for many Manchester United fans. This being said, more pressure will be piled on Ronaldo to deliver the goods this season.
