Cristiano Ronaldo has lashed out at Erik ten Hag and Manchester United’s management. The 37-year-old forward says he feels deceived by England’s premier club in an interaction with journalist Piers Morgan.
Ronaldo is speaking out for the first time about his status at Manchester United. Since Ten Hag’s appointment as manager, there has been speculation over the Portuguese’s future, which does not appear to be in the plans of the Dutch coach. Ronaldo has spent more time on the bench than he would like this season and wishes to go in the winter.
Ronaldo attacks Ten Hag throughout the interview, saying he does not respect him. “I don’t respect him because he doesn’t respect me,” stated the Portuguese, who was recently penalised by Ten Hag after refusing to replace Tottenham Hotspur. “I’ll never respect you if you don’t respect me.”
Ronaldo believes Ten Hag and United’s club management are attempting to get rid of him. “Not only the coach, but two or three other people from the club. I’m feeling betrayed. Some individuals do not want me to be here. Not only this season, but also last season.”
Cristiano Ronaldo has lashed out at Wayne Rooney
Ronaldo is frequently made to pay for it in the headlines. Wayne Rooney, for example, slammed him. “I’m not sure why either. Perhaps because he has already retired from football and I continue to compete at a high level. I won’t say I’m more attractive than him… But I do,” Ronaldo chuckled.
In England, Cristiano Ronaldo’s interview with journalist Piers Morgan will generate quite a sensation. Not only did the Portuguese attacker criticise manager Erik ten Hag and the club’s management, but he also criticised the club’s predicament.
Sir Alex Ferguson called Ronaldo while he was on his way from Juventus to Manchester City in the summer of 2021. The previous United boss persuaded him to do it. “I went with my heart. Sir Alex told me I couldn’t possibly go to Manchester City. ‘All right, boss,’ I said.”
