Manchester United shares official statement after explosive interview by Cristiano Ronaldo
Manchester United has issued a statement after star footballer Cristiano Ronaldo gave an explosive interview, saying he feels "betrayed" by the club for trying to force him out of the team. In his interview, the Portuguese star also said that he has "no respect" for Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag because he "doesn`t show respect for me".
Ronaldo, who re-joined United in August 2021 and finished as their top scorer in all competitions last season with 24 goals, said, "I don`t have respect for him because he doesn`t show respect for me. If you don`t have respect for me, I`m never gonna have respect for you." Ronaldo has launched an explosive attack on Manchester United and coach Erik ten Hag in an interview with Piers Morgan for their treatment of him since he returned at the start of last season.
Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag, his former teammate Wayne Rooney and Ralf Rangnick were all targets of Ronaldo`s anger during the 90-minute interview, which he has given just before the Portuguese star flies out to Qatar for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
