A Manchester United tweet showing Cristiano Ronaldo about to take a free kick has gone viral for all the wrong reasons given his poor conversion rate at Juventus.
CR7 is absolutely dominating the Red Devils’ activity on social media since the club announced his return last week.
After a three-year spell in Turin, Ronaldo has completed a €15m move to Old Trafford from Juventus. The Red Devils can pay up to €8m in bonuses depending on the player’s and the club’s targets over the next two seasons.
Ronaldo scored 101 goals in 134 appearances with the Bianconeri but only managed one goal from 72 free kick attempts during his time in Turin.
That’s why many fans, including those of Juventus, have made fun of Manchester United’s tweet showing Ronaldo about to take a free kick in a Red Devils shirt. The tweet has been shared more than 25,000 times in less than 24 hours, but most reactions aim to mock the Red Devils and their new star.
