Things may not be going to plan at Manchester United, with the club on a dreadful run of form that has seen them pick up just one point in their last three Premier League games.
Cristiano Ronaldo is well-known for being the one of most dedicated athletes on the planet and even at 36 is working as hard as ever.
For Ronaldo personally, he has been on an unusually poor spell in front of goal and has not scored in his last four league matches.
The last time he did that was back in 2017 and he hasn’t gone five games in a row without a goal since 2009.
Ronaldo and United will face Tottenham on Saturday – a game you can listen to live on talkSPORT at 5.30pm.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner showed he was still putting in hours in the gym as he posted a picture on Instagram along with an inspirational message.
Ronaldo has not scored in four Premier League games
He captioned the image: “Hard work is the only pathway to victory. There are no shortcuts to glory. No pain, no gain!”
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under huge pressure right now and reportedly has just three games to turn things around.
There have been various reports that players are unhappy with the manager and how things are going.
The Manchester Evening News claim Ronaldo is the one ‘holding the dressing room together’ and he has attempted to rally the team and urged them to show unity.
It’s claimed Ronaldo is cajoling the players into not downing tools, irrespective of what they think of the current manager, and support Solskjaer
