The arrival of Ronaldo could be having a detrimental affect on United team-mates Bruno Fernandes, Mason Greenwood and Paul Pogba, according to Neville.
“I support the signing, I love him to bits, but United have to find a way playing to compensate for him,” he added.
“It’s like we did 10-15 years ago, where you had Scholes and Carrick in midfield, but you had Ji-Sung Park working like you wouldn’t believe, Rooney slogging up and down that right wing, and Tevez slogging up and down around it. Everyone else was working like a dog to compensate for Cristiano.
“If you then put Bruno Fernandes in there, you put Mason Greenwood in there, you then put Paul Pogba in there with Cristiano – you’re going to get cut through on the counter-attack and you’re not winning the league.”
