In spite of having scored 14 goals so far this season, establishing himself as United’s driving goalscorer, questions have been raised with regards to the general effect of his return on the rest of the squad – even though they have tended to get better results with him in the side.

Nevertheless, Parker – who conceded that Ronaldo is a “top player” – isn’t persuaded with regards to the Portuguese star’s professionalism, proposing that his re-visitation of Old Trafford promptly put pressure on the rest of the squad.

Parker told indiabetting, as quoted by ManchesterEvening: “I wouldn’t say he’s a top pro.

“Straight away they couldn’t help talking about how he’s changed the diet and the players because of this, he’s eating this and he’s eating that, so what, everyone’s different, everyone’s metabolisms are different, your mindset is different, how you approach everything your training to games, all different.

“So I think Ronaldo turning up put everyone under pressure, sold a load of jerseys, PR-wise it was brilliant for the club.

“I think it affected the mindset of a lot of other players as well. It’s about being a top player, and being a top pro, and Ronaldo is a top player, he’s proved that.

“But all of a sudden, look what he’s doing, look what he’s got. It’s great what he’s got, fantastic. But I’m different, I like to think I’m different, and I’m going to do it, started doing it my way, and so that puts pressure on a lot of players.

“So it hasn’t worked out on the field with him on the pitch.”
