Football can be a cruel game, can’t it? So far this evening has been particularly nasty for Manchester United fans, who, after going 1-0 up, currently find themselves 2-1 down in Wolfsburg, knowing that a loss – as long as PSV Eindhoven keep it level against CSKA Moscow – will see them eliminated from the Champions League.
Nasty enough, right? Well, things are even more cruel when you look around to discover that Cristiano Ronaldo, and ex-Old Trafford idol, is breaking records… again! The Portuguese attacker netted four against Malmo, taking his group stage tally to 11 – the highest from a single player in the opening six game phase in the competition’s history.
Naturally, fans took to Twitter to vent their frustration and send out some pleas to CR7…

Ronaldo has scored 5 more goals in the Champions League this season than #mufc. But I guess we don’t need him back according to some fans.

Yeah United definitely shouldn’t buy Ronaldo back because he’s past it and won’t have the same effect
