Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo (37) opened up his soul in a big video interview with Piers Morgan about the current situation at Manchester United, where he has completely fallen into the background this season. "Not only the coach, but the other two or three guys around the club.
I felt betrayed." on Ten Hag: "I don't have respect for him because he doesn't show respect for me" Ronaldo said.
He commented on the entire situation at the club:
“The progress was zero,” he sighs. “Since Sir Alex left, I saw no evolution in the club.
Nothing had changed. I think the fans should know the truth,” he says. “I want the best for the club. This is why I come to Manchester United. But you have some things inside that don’t help (us) reach the top level as City, Liverpool and even now Arsenal .
. . a club with this dimension should be top of the tree in my opinion and they are not unfortunately. As Picasso said, you have to destroy it to rebuild it (the artist’s exact quote was: ‘Every act of creation is first an act of destruction.’) and if they start with me, for me, it’s not a problem." "I love Manchester United, I love the fans, they’re always on my side.
But if they want to do it different… they have to change many, many things”. As for what Sir Alex thinks of the current situation, Ronaldo says: “He knows better than anybody that the club is not on the path they deserve to be.
He knows. Everyone knows. The people who don’t see that… it’s because they don’t want to see; they are blind”. In an interview that was called Ronaldo's most explosive ever, he also revealed why he returned to United.
“I followed my heart,” he says simply, tapping his chest. “He (Sir Alex) said to me, ‘It’s impossible for you to come to Manchester City’, and I said, ‘OK, Boss’”. he added.
