In a column published by the Daily Mail, the former English striker Peter Crouch delivered on the offensive animations of the leaders of the Premier League and the importance of the number 9 in their systems of play.

The former international of the Three Lions has moreover criticized the activity of Cristiano Ronaldo on the field, today positioned in number 9 by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, in particular during the stinging defeat at home against Liverpool on Sunday night (5-0).

“Getting in front is no longer in fashion and it is a question that is debated at Manchester United this season after the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo. Things are changing, new eras are coming quickly, although part of me is a little sad about it.

You can't concede five goals at Old Trafford and Solskjaer was responsible for two such afternoons in the space of a year. United have been too individualistic for too long. They got away with it because players like Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford can all do something special.”
