Cristiano Ronaldo’s favorite position of play needs no introduction, He started out as a Left Wing player on the flanks.
His abilities came to limelight in his time at Sporting Lisbon in a preseason friendly where he left all the Manchester United players gobsmacked with his skill and demanded his inclusion in the squad.
Negotiations were already underway by Sir Alex Ferguson to secure the signature of this world class talent.
His electrifying speed, dizzying stepover dribbles and aerial superiority played a major hand in the development of his role as a winger.
That’s where he has spent the majority of his career and stamped his authority of the greatest player of all time to grace the game scoring more than 500 goals in the process.
In his time at Real Madrid, he has gradually shifted his focus from the wider areas and become more or less, a box-to-box striker under the tutelage of Zinedine Zidane.
He can still be seen trying to draw the opposition defenders on the wings with his dribbles or assist a teammate with a cross-field ball in the six yard box or open up the play for other teammates and create vital spaces for the attack to build or at times, have a shot at goal himself if the opportunity presents itself.
Ronaldo is not a central forward,He's a winger so if Manchester United wants to get the best of him, the coach should play him as a left winger to get the best out of him.
