Man Utd news LIVE: Follow all the latest from Old Trafford


Cristiano Ronaldo believes Manchester United need more time to adapt after erratic results.

Prior to their win over Atalanta in midweek, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side had won just two of their previous seven games in all competitions.

And now, ahead of their crunch Premier League clash with Liverpool on Sunday, the 36-year-old has called on people to give the squad time to gel.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “We are in a moment in my opinion that Manchester (United) do a few changes; they buy me, they buy [Raphael] Varane and (Jadon) Sancho.

“The adaptation will take time, even the system of the game that we play, but I think step by step we have to put it in our mind that everything is possible.

“I don’t speak only about my individual stuff, I put the collective in first place. To win things as a collective, it’s more easy to win individual stuff, so I believe that and I still think it’s possible.

“Everyone should know their role. I know my role in the team, in the club… my role is to score goals, to help the team with my experience and know-how to understand the game.

“If everyone is thinking like that, sacrifice for the team, I think we will be a better team. We have fantastic supporters behind us, fantastic stadium, fantastic team, so we have to carry on like that.”
