Cristiano Ronaldo leaves Manchester United’s training session in a good mood

Cristiano Ronaldo smiled as he left Manchester United’s training ground on Thursday afternoon after a session with Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s team.

Ronaldo was snapped by MEN photographers driving away from Carrington’s training base in his Bentley car as United’s squad met ahead of this weekend’s Watford showdown.

United travel to Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon to arrest their alarming Premier League form. Solskjær has seen his team win only three of their last 10 matches in all tournaments, with only one victory in their previous six in the league.

Ronaldo, who suffered heartache on the international stage with Portugal last week – when they were denied automatic World Cup qualification by Serbia – will appear to be at the helm of a United turnaround in the coming months.

The 36-year-old has scored nine goals since returning to Old Trafford this summer, including dramatic late goals in the Champions League matches against Villarreal and Atalanta (twice) to secure valuable points. He also scored in United’s most recent victory, the 3-0 triumph of Tottenham Hotspur on 30 October.

Solskjær’s job has come into doubt after defeats to Leicester, Liverpool and Man City in the league, with BUT understanding that United have an interest in Brendan Rodgers as a possible successor.

BUT reported on October 27 that Ronaldo begged his United team-mates to show faith in Solskjær despite widespread criticism of the Norwegian, amid the feeling that United’s star-studded squad is underperforming.

Solskjær can still turn things around in the short term, even if a change of management at some point in the foreseeable future now seems inevitable. Spain’s boss Luis Enrique and Ajax ‘Erik Ten Hag are among the other managers linked to the job.

United v Watford start at 3pm on Saturday (November 20).
