Man Utd’s response to Ronaldo’s explosive Piers Morgan interview

Ronaldo’s explosive Piers Morgan interview

Cristiano Ronaldo’s interview with Piers Morgan, which was partially leaked on Sunday night, has reportedly made Manchester United “furious.”

Ronaldo sat down with Morgan to discuss his situation at United at length, with the full discussion to be aired later this week andand has admitted to feeling “betrayed” by the club after initially rejoining in 2021.

The 37-year-old tried to leave United in the summer of 2016, but he may have written the final chapter of his United career this time around, having admitted that he “doesn’t respect” current manager Erik ten Hag, that people have been trying to force him out of the club, and that he had “never heard of” former interim manager Ralf Rangnick when he was appointed.

As Ronaldo told Morgan, “Since Sir Alex Ferguson left, I saw no progression in the club,” he was critical of the team’s lack of investment in facility upgrades. Neither side made any headway. It’s still the same. Neither the swimming pool nor the jacuzzi; neither the fitness center nor, to a lesser extent, the technology nor the kitchen.

They managed to break their momentum just in time. I expected to see new developments in technology and infrastructure, but instead, we’re stuck with many of the same things I witnessed when I was 20 and 21.

The consequences of the Portuguese superstar’s comments, in which he expressed his disappointment in the club, will linger throughout the week; United don’t play again for five weeks due to the World Cup, and the club must now determine how to move forward. Used  is reportedly “furious” with Ronaldo for his actions, according to 90min. His long-term status was thought to be resolved during the break when he and Ten Hag were expected to remain on “good” terms until the end of the season.

Because of his close ties to the club and its fans, United feels “blindsided” and “anticipated better” from the player.

It has been made plain to chief executive Richard Arnold by the club’s owners, the Glazer family, that they want this sorted ‘as quickly as possible,’ and 90min has been told that Arnold has been given that directive.
