Former player Manchester United’s Dietmar Hamann says the club have only looked good because of Cristiano Ronaldo.
The 36-year-old Ronaldo has earned high credit five goals in six appearances since rejoining the Red Devils on deadline day.
According to Hamann, United have looked pathetic without the former Real Madrid and Juventus superstar.
“The one and only reason why Manchester United are still in the title race and doing alright in the Champions League is Cristiano Ronaldo,” he told Sky Sports Germany.
“I don’t know where they would be without him or his goals. It is all patchwork. Old Trafford, that used to be the Theatre of Dreams, now it is more like the Theatre of Nightmares.
“Their performances are pathetic. At the moment, they just don’t play good football.”
Coming up next for United is a trip to Leicester City after the FIFA international week.
