A former Manchester United star has hit out at the 'Ronaldo-fanboys' for their criticism of new signing Wout Weghorst.

Ronaldo parted ways with the Red Devils just before the FIFA World Cup last year after an explosive interview with Piers Morgan.

Ten Hag Makes Big Rashford Claim After Stunning Solo Goal

United opted to sign Weghorst on a loan deal for the remainder of the season, with Erik ten Hag desperate to bolster his attack.

The Netherlands international has started the last three games for United, but former full-back Paul Parker says people have been too harsh on the striker.

"I think that people have been too harsh towards Wout Weghorst. He has only played three games and it's way too early to judge him. But it is Man United and you are going to be judged," 

"Every single player is under a massive pressure and they have to handle that 24 hours a day. And people have to remember that he is not a Ronaldo. Ronaldo was a better footballer but this guy is offering something different. 

"He works hard and he wants to help the club. But all the Ronaldo fanboys are just throwing mud at the idiom, which is a disgrace. They should want the club to have success and not only think about their hero who has a new life in a league that only his fans care about.”
