Chelsea and England Star, Frank Lampard highlighted Manchester Uniteds weakness after the sale of Ronaldo to Madrid, Frank believes that there is only one player in world football at this present time who could replace Ronaldo and that is Leo Messi.
With United losing 1 – 0 to Premiership newcomers Burnley in midweek, a creative spark is needed in the midfield to break lose and Frank was quoted as saying “You don’t replace him [Cristiano Ronaldo], apart from with Messi – he is probably the only player you could do it with,” to Sky Sports.
