Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has urged Cristiano Ronaldo to have a different mindset if he wants to thrive under new Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag.

Ferdinand suggested Ronaldo should shift his attention from winning trophies to having a personal impact at Manchester United.

Speaking on his official YouTube podcast, Rio Ferdinand said: “I just feel with Cristiano Ronaldo, he’s always been known for winning and every team he’s been at has been challenging for all the top honours.

“I think he’s going to have to change his mindset and leave a different type of legacy at this point in his career with Manchester United. It’s about working out what it’s going to be for Ronaldo.

“Help the next manager integrate with the new team and new environment, helping with the young players and new players who come in the door. Be that experienced player that’s a shoulder to lean on.

“And maybe shift his attention from glory and the trophies to really having that personal impact at the football club — it’s a bit different to what he has probably done before because it’s been trophy-led all the time.”
