Ronaldo says “everyone should know role” despite best Man Utd XI being unknown
Cristiano Ronaldo has said that "everyone should know their role" at Manchester United, despite the club's best starting line-up still being unknown.
The Red Devils have made an indifferent start to the new season, having already been knocked out of the Carabao Cup by West Ham United.
They have also struggled for consistency in the league, sitting in sixth place after eight matches having won four matches, drawn two and lost twice, most recently away to Leicester City last Saturday.
However, Ronaldo now feels that his teammates should now know their role within the side after he scored another late winner in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of Sunday's match, the Portugal striker explained: "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, 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.
Are Cristiano Ronaldo's comments about the Manchester United squad correct? Let us know in the comments section below.
"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."
Despite United's inconsistencies this season, Ronaldo has been in fine form since returning to the club this summer.
The 36-year-old arrived from Juventus on deadline day after 12 years away from Old Trafford and has so far scored six goals in just eight appearances.
This includes three in three in the Champions League, having scored another late winner against Atalanta on Wednesday, following a stoppage time goal in last month's win over Villarreal.
