Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero has claimed the inability to effectively replace Sir Alex Ferguson is the biggest problem of Manchester United.

Del Piero insists Cristiano Ronaldo is not the only problem for Manchester United who ‘still have something missing’ since Ferguson retired.

“I still believe he is an amazing champion with a great mentality,” Del Piero told ESPN FC about Ronaldo, who scored 24 goals in 38 games last season across all competitions.

“He is not in shape like you used to see. If you play in a team that is playing super well, your performances will be much better.

“On the other side, if you play in a team that is not playing well, it is the opposite. You’ll play much worse.

“Manchester United are still in a difficult position. They have changed a lot with managers and players and something is missing at the club ever since Sir Alex Ferguson left.

“They have different problems, not only Cristiano Ronaldo.”
