In an interview with Talk TV, Cristiano Ronaldo shocked the public with his statements regarding Erik ten Hag, the former coach of United as well as his teammate. "Honestly, I don't know. I don't care. People should hear the truth.
Yes, I feel betrayed. Some people don't want me here not only this year, but last year too. I don't know what's going on. Since Sir Alex Ferguson left I have seen not evolution in the club. The progress was zero. For example, an interesting point is how a club like Manchester United sacked Ole (Gunnar Solskjaer), they bring in a sporting director Ralf Rangnick which is something nobody understands.
This guy is not even a coach! A big club like Manchester United bringing in a sporting director surprised not only me but all the world."- Ronado said, as quoted by skysports.com
Cristiano Ronaldo and his departure
Ronaldo has not seen any progress in the club since his departure in 2009.
"Nothing changes. Not only the jacuzzi, the pool, even the gym. Even some points of technology, the kitchen, the chefs - who I appreciate, lovely people! They stop in time which surprised me a lot. I thought I would see different things, technology, infrastructure.
Unfortunately, we see many things I'm used to seeing when I'm 21, 22, 23. It surprised me a lot." Ronaldo has no respect for Erik ten Hag. "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." The Portuguese believes that the fans must know the truth.
"I think the fans should know the truth," the Portugal international added. "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.
