Cristiano Ronaldo trolled with new James Bond nickname after Man Utd star’s disastrous start to season


MANCHESTER UNITED striker Cristiano Ronaldo has been dubbed as the new James Bond following his slow start to the season.

The 37-year-old has featured in all seven of the club’s matches so far, though he has been restricted to just two starts under new boss Erik Ten Hag.

He has failed to chip with a goal or an assist from his outings, leading football fans to label him as “CR007”.

It was a nickname that Sky Germany created for his Red Devils team-mate Jadon Sancho last campaign after his underwhelming start.

Ronaldo was included in the starting XI for the Europa League clash against Real Sociedad on Thursday – the first time he’s been named in the line-up since the 4-0 loss away at Brentford on August 13.

But he failed to inspire his side to victory as United suffered a shock 1-0 defeat at the hands of the Spanish side.

And football fans have taken to social media to troll the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.

One Twitter user said: “CR007, the new James Bond.”

Another remarked: “0 Goals 0 Assists 7 games They call me CR007.”

A third added: “Ronaldo is officially 007 now.”

This supporter tweeted: “CR007. No goals, no assist, just cheerleading and vibes.”

And this person commented: “Formerly CR7, but now CR007.”

Meanwhile another simply stated: “Meet the next James Bond.”

United fans were in agreement after their defeat to Sociedad on Thursday that Ronaldo has “CURSED” the club.

After losing against the Bees, Ronaldo was dropped for the next four games in which he started from the bench with United winning every game.

And then after being recalled to the team, United yet again failed to claim a single point with him leading the line.

Liverpool legend Steve Nicol believes that the player is showing signs of his age after declaring he “looked every one of his 37 years” against the LaLiga outfit.
