Arsenal legend hits back at critics claiming Ronaldo won’t shine in the Premier League

Arsenal legend Ray Paulour has hit back at critics claiming Cristiano Ronaldo is too old to make a difference in the Premier League following his move back to Manchester United.

“He’s got 111 goals for his country, it’s amazing isn’t it,” he told TalkSPORT.

“He’s been unbelievable, it amazes me when people say he won’t be able to do it in the Premier League. Of course he will. He’s done it in every league and if you look at the fitness of the guy, he’s not a normal 36-year-old is he? You’d have him down as 31, 32 maybe maximum.

“He’ll be ready to go, what he’ll do so well is he won’t use his energy up for the sake of it, he’ll do it at the right time. When you get older you learn when you need to do a bit of running and it’s all about that movement of a striker, you just get half a yard, you get across your man. I think he’ll have no problem in the Premier League.”
