Gary Neville claims Cristiano Ronaldo needs his Man United team-mates to work like 'trojans' to make up for his lack of tracking back - as he insists his old club 'have a lot of generals' but WON'T win trophies unless they 'start working hard'

Gary Neville believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs to get Manchester United players around talisman Cristiano Ronaldo who are prepared to work hard.

Solskjaer and his star-studded team have come under scrutiny after failing to pick up a win in their last two Premier League matches as they were beaten by Aston Villa last weekend and held to a 1-1 draw by Everton on Saturday.

The United boss reshuffled his starting line-up for the visit of Rafa Benitez's side which included dropping summer signing Ronaldo to the bench. The Portugal superstar was called upon in the second half but he could not rescue all three points as he did in Europe against Villarreal in midweek.
