Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes at Manchester United
Netgenz - Netizen buzz Sport | Cristiano Ronaldo is said to be replacing Bruno Fernandes as Manchester United's penalty taker. But Ronaldo's penalty record is worse than Fernandes' penalty. Fernandes received harsh criticism after failing to complete a penalty when Manchester United was beaten 0-1 by Aston Villa in the Premier League match at Old Trafford, Saturday (25/9). Ronaldo is believed by several factions to replace Fernandes' job as Man Utd's penalty taker after the incident against Villa. But if you look at the statistics, Ronaldo is worse than Fernandes.
Taken from Planet Football, Fernandes has a success percentage of kicking a penalty up to 91.3% during his career with the club and the Portugal national team. While Ronaldo's record of success in winning penalties is only 81.4%. At the club level, Ronaldo's penalty shootout record is 85 percent, while Fernandes's is 90.7%. While in the Portugal national team, Fernandes has 100% penalty success. And Ronaldo is only 70%.
Based on that record, it is not wrong if Man Utd coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still chooses Fernandes as the penalty taker despite the arrival of Ronaldo in the team. Until now Solskjaer has not decided regarding Manchester United's penalty taker following the ready-viewed failure of Fernandes against Villa.
