Cristiano Ronaldo has in an interview with Piers Morgan lashed out hard at Erik ten Hag and the club management of Manchester United. In the conversation with the English journalist, Ronaldo says he feels betrayed at Manchester United.
Since Ten Hag took office as manager of Manchester United, it has been about the future of the Portuguese footballer at the English top club. It seems that Ronaldo is not in the plans of the former Ajax coach. This season, Ronaldo is mainly on the bench and he has one wish for the winter transfer period: to leave.
In conversation with Morgan, Ronaldo lashes out at Ten Hag. “I don’t respect him because he doesn’t respect me,” said Ronaldo, who recently refused to come in against Tottenham Hotspur. Ten Hag punished him for this by leaving him out of the selection for one game. “If you don’t respect me, I’ll never respect you.”
Ronaldo also not happy with club management and Rooney
Ronaldo has the feeling that Ten Hag and the club management want him out of Manchester United. “Not just the coach, but two or three people around the club. I feel betrayed. Some people don’t want me here. Not just this season, but last season as well.’
Wayne Rooney was recently critical of Ronaldo and the Portuguese is not happy about that. He says, ‘I don’t know why either. Maybe because he has already stopped playing football and I still play at a high level. I won’t say I look better than him… But I do’, he concludes with a wink.
The complete interview will appear on the TalkTV channels next Wednesday and Thursday. Whether Ronaldo will tell more about his near future will then become apparent.
