Cristiano Ronaldo 'becoming irritated' with Man Utd star over key decisions

Cristiano Ronaldo is understood to have grown frustrated with Mason Greenwood over the young player's habit for shooting instead of passing to an open teammate

Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly 'becoming irritated' with his Manchester United teammate Mason Greenwood over key decisions during matches.

Since Ronaldo returned to Old Trafford at the end of the summer transfer window, he and Greenwood have played alongside each other eight times in all competitions.

During these eight matches, neither player has assisted the other for a goal and Greenwood has found the net just once, having scored three in three before Ronaldo's second debut.

ESPN report that the duo's lack of understanding is being blamed on under-fire Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as pressure mounts on the United manager.

They report that a source within the United camp has revealed that Solskjaer's inability to force the pair to link up more convincingly is the main reason for their lack of understanding.

Their United teammates are understood to have noticed in recent matches that the pair rarely pass to each other, despite Greenwood starting on the right wing with Ronaldo as the lone striker ahead of him in most games.

As a result, Ronaldo is now seen as becoming visibly agitated by the English teenager's decisions in key goal scoring scenarios.

The former Juventus man reportedly feels that Greenwood often shoots at goal himself instead of passing to a teammate in a better position to score.

Greenwood and Ronaldo are yet to directly combine for a United goal in 568 minutes of football together this season.

Ronaldo's frustration was also apparent in Sunday's 5-0 home thrashing at the hands of Liverpool, as United were humbled in front of their own fans at Old Trafford.

The 36-year-old was lucky to stay on the pitch after appearing to kick out at Liverpool's Curtis Jones in first half stoppage time, before he saw a consolation goal ruled out for offside in the second half.

The five-goal mauling on Sunday was the heaviest defeat that Ronaldo has suffered in a United shirt as he made his 301st appearance for the club.
