Trevor Sinclair, a former Manchester City ace, has told Cristiano Ronaldo that he should not expect to win any silverware with Manchester United.
Sinclair told talkSPORT Breakfast: “He [Ronaldo] will score goals, there is a lot of glory in there if he does turn it around for Manchester United, but the likelihood is he’ll score a lot of goals but not pick up any silverware.”
Sinclair, who spoke ahead of the Manchester derby, insisted that the fact ya t Ronaldo chose to sign for United shows he loves the club.
Ronaldo has come to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s rescue on many occasions this season and is expected to once again lead the Red Devils against City on Saturday afternoon.
“His foundations were at Manchester United and actually, when you think about it, this is him, kind of, not being selfish,” Sinclair added.
“Because, for me, if he was being selfish, there was only one decision to make and that was to go to Manchester City and trophies.
“But instead he’s gone, ‘you know what? I love this club, they have given me my start, I want to go back there and try to repay them and be as successful as I can there’.
“But, for me, nothing changes. He’s not going to win silverware.
“He certainly will keep on scoring and keep on breaking records, and he might win individual silverware, but I don’t think he will win any silverware with Manchester United.”
