EPL: You’ve been a distraction – Victor Ikpeba tells Man Utd star to leave Old Trafford

Former Monaco star, Victor Ikpeba, has told Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season.

Ikpeba believes Ronaldo has been a distraction in many ways at Manchester United this season.

He noted that the Portugal captain made a mistake by rejoining Man United last year, adding that he should have joined Manchester City instead.

His return to Man United came as a surprise as it seemed the five-time Ballon d’Or winner was on his way to Man City, only for the Premier League champions to cool their interest, paving the way for the Red Devils to win the race for his services.

Speaking on SuperSport’s Monday Night Football, Ikpeba said: “I think he [Ronaldo] should be leaving the club. Ronaldo coming back to Manchester United was a mistake.

“It’s not a question of him scoring goals, so many things happen when a star player returns to his original club.

“In many ways, Ronaldo has been a distraction. He’s a global star in football, he shouldn’t have come back at that age, he should have gone to Manchester City.

“Egocentric players, jealousy comes to play in the dressing room. The atmosphere has been nasty right from the beginning.”
