‘I like your mentality but you can’t make it with Man Utd’ – Darren Bent tells Ronaldo

Bent on Ronaldo

Darren Bent has hailed Cristiano Ronaldo’s mentality after he demanded his Manchester United teammates fight for third position in the Premier League instead of just aiming at top four finish.

Ronaldo believes United can still make it to the top three in the Premier League table despite them currently sitting in seventh after their recent 1-0 defeat to Wolves.

The Red devils are now six points behind fourth-placed West Ham, while the gap to Liverpool in third is bigger at 11.

But Ronaldo is demanding more from the club who are currently underperforming and Bent applauded the former Real Madrid and Juventus superstar.

The 36-year-old told Sky Sports “Manchester United should win the league or finish in second or third. I don’t see any other positions for Manchester United.

“In my head I don’t accept that our mentality be that we finish below the top three in the Premier League.”

“I like his mentality, I really like it,” Bent told talkSPORT. “You talk about someone who’s won the absolute lot, individual accolades, team accolades, the biggest trophies there are to win.

“The fact that he’s not happy with them competing for the top four, I like that. “They’ve got no chance, in my opinion, of getting into that top three,” Bent said.

“They’re absolutely miles away from catching the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City, the gap’s huge.

“But I like it, and I think players in the dressing room listening to someone of that stature talk, it will ring bells in their ears, thinking ‘maybe we are underachieving’.”
