Manchester United’s woeful number 7 statistics since Cristiano Ronaldo

Manchester United’s woeful number 7 statistics since Cristiano Ronaldo

It has been 10 years since Cristiano Ronaldo departed the dressing room of Old Trafford and left behind the famed number 7 kit for a worthy successor but the sheer comicality of the statistic of the no.7 kit would baffle Ronaldo himself.

Manchester United’s woeful number 7 statistics since Cristiano Ronaldo

The shirt number may well and truly be cursed. These are the statistic of the players that donned the no.7 jersey after Ronaldo left for Real Madrid:

  • Michael Owen – 5 goals
  • Antonio Valencia – 1 goal
  • Angel Di Maria – 3 goals
  • Memphis Depay – 2 goals
  • Alexis Sanchez – 3 goals

The total sums up to just 15 goals while Ronaldo has gone on to score around 332 goals in that time period.

The fall in grace of the kit number once worn by Eric Cantona and David Beckham signifies the fall of the mighty Manchester United from its stature of one of the biggest clubs in the world.
