Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has told manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to urge his team mates to move the ball quicker to him in attacking areas, ESPN reports.

Ronaldo has scored five goals already in five games since he returned to Old Trafford from Juventus in the summer.

However, the 36-year-old has made it clear to Solskjaer and his coaches that he can further increase his goal ratio if United become sharper and quicker when distributing the ball in the opposition half.

Ronaldo has been deployed in a central attacking position by Solskjaer since making his debut against Newcastle last month, with Jadon Sancho and Mason Greenwood used as inverted wingers alongside the 36-year-old.

Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes have been used as attacking midfielders behind Ronaldo, but sources said that United’s coaching team want the team’s defensive players to get the ball to the attackers more quickly, which will in turn enable them to feed Ronaldo and take advantage of opponents being out of shape at the back.
