Cristiano Ronaldo doesn’t appear to be enjoying life at Manchester United much right now.
The Portuguese forward has cut a frustrated figure more than once in recent weeks, most recently in the 0-0 draw against Watford.
Ronaldo raised his arms in the air in clear frustration after Bruno Fernandes ignored him in the first half.
And at full-time, the 37-year-old was spotted with his hands on his hips, shaking his head.

It ends 0-0 at Old Trafford 🤝

Ralf Rangnick’s side are hoping to finish in the top four in the Premier League but they’re not making that pursuit a comfortable one.
They were disappointed to draw against Burnley and Southampton before the Watford stalemate, and face a gruelling run in March that includes games against Man City, Tottenham and Liverpool.
If they are to finish in the automatic Champions League places then they’re going to need more from Ronaldo, who has scored just once in 2022 and is now ranked as the 69th best player in the league.
Per WhoScored, there have been 68 better players in the top flight this season. Their data gives Ronaldo a rating of 6.93, which is worse than teammates Scott McTominay and Fred.
Here’s the full list of better players so far in 2021/22.

Another stat that Ronaldo won’t be happy about is that he has been caught offside more times than any other Premier League player this season.
Ronaldo has been caught offside 25 times, six more than Wolves’ Raul Jimenez.
The data all contributes to the idea that, quite possibly, this is the beginning of the end for Ronaldo at the top level.
QPR fan, so I’ve grown used to disappointment and started overpaying for things past their prime. Lewis Hamilton lookalike, apparently.
