Cristiano Ronaldo said Manchester United must improve

Cristiano Ronaldo said Manchester United must improve but they need time after the Red Devils superstar’s 91st-minute equaliser salvaged a dramatic 2-2 draw at Atalanta in the Champions League.

United had never lost four consecutive away games in the European Cup/Champions League, however, the underperforming side were facing more unwanted history until Ronaldo rescued a point in stoppage time on Tuesday.

Ronaldo capped a stunning team move in first-half stoppage time to cancel out Josip Ilicic’s 12th-minute opener in Bergamo, where Duvan Zapata restored Atalanta’s lead 11 minutes into the second half.

However, Ronaldo bailed out Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United again following another underwhelming display in Group F amid mounting pressure on the Norwegian manager – whose team have only won three of their past eight fixtures.

“It was a difficult game,” Ronaldo told BT Sport, with United level on seven points with Villarreal atop the group. “It’s always difficult here, but we believed until the end.

“I helped my team to get a point and I’m so happy.”
