The supporters feel the Old Trafford side have missed out on a key transfer target due to the issues the Portugal captain was taking about

Fans in Africa feel Manchester United’s inability to sign Cody Gakpo vindicates Cristiano Ronaldo after he claimed the club is poorly run.

The Portugal captain left United last month after ripping into the club over how they have been left behind by their rivals due to poor management and lack of modern structures while also hitting out at manager Erik ten Hag.

With Liverpool sealing the transfer of Dutch forward Gakpo, who had been heavily linked with United, the supporters feel the deal has laid bare some of the issues that Ronaldo highlighted.

  1. Ronaldo was right

    Ronaldo was right

    I was thinking Ronaldo was wrong but after seeing Gakpo joining Liverpool, let me forgive myself. Ronaldo was very right, everything at United is old, including the currency. - Vibekiller Șnookcun Mjeshi

    Manchester United shows interest to every good player just to wake the other teams’ attention. - Mustafa Canteyn

    United indecisiveness proved costly

    So, Liverpool basically completed a transfer within minutes whereas United were monitoring, guarding protecting, scouting Gakpo for months. - TruthAbdul Haqq Njolomole

  4. Liverpool will regret

    Liverpool will regret

    This is just reminding me the transfer of [Darwin] Nunez. He was likely to join Man United and Liverpool jumped in for him. Look at [him] now, what is the guy is doing right there? Liverpool think they have sorted [Sadio] Mane's replacement but they will regret again. - Victor Vicky Malende

  5. Man United need a striker not winger

    Man United need a striker not winger

    No, [Frenkie] De Jong nightmare "yes" Gakpo nightmare "No". Manchester United need another striker and not just another player to be added to the squad. -Weigo Jitzi

    Gakpo is a winger and at United, we have [Marcus] Rashford, Antony, [Anthony] Elanga, [Alejandro] Garnacho and [Jadon] Sancho. Fact is, we play only two wingers, game in game out, so adding up won’t help. All we need is a typical striker. - Nii Armah Mensah

  6. Even Van Nistelrooy couldn’t convince Gakpo

    Even Van Nistelrooy couldn’t convince Gakpo

    Imagine their former player [Ruud van Nistelrooy] is the manager of PSV but couldn't convince Gakpo to sign for Manchester United. - Edwin G

  7. Gakpo chose the better team

    Gakpo chose the better team

    Good players always choose good teams. Plenty of choices for [Jurgen] Klopp with wingers. - Rajabu Leonard Kapile Orga

    He has joined the right club. United just need to make [Jadon] Sancho better. - Ikenna Steven

  8. It couldn’t get any worse for United

    It couldn’t get any worse for United

    He rejected United, he rejected [Erik] Ten Hag to join their biggest rivals in Liverpool. Wow! just when I thought United could not get any worse, they do. Gakpo is going to play in the red of Liverpool, not United. - Neil Jacobs
