Super star footballer and ex-World Footballer of the year, Cristiano Ronaldo, is set to quit Manchester United by January 2023, six months before the expiration of his contract with the club.
In an interview with the Portuguese news outfit, Piers Morgan, Ronaldo hit out at Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag, the club and people within it for not letting him leave this summer.
Ronaldo sensationally claimed that he has no “respect” for Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag, as he broke silence on his future at the club.
The former Real Madrid man said that he felt betrayed by the way he had been treated at the club and that he was being forced out of Old Trafford.
Recall that after refusing to come on as a last-minute substitute during the 2-0 win over Tottenham in October, Ronaldo left Old Trafford early. Ten Hag then made the decision to drop the five-time Ballon d’Or winner for United’s following match against Chelsea by way of punishment.
Ronaldo has since returned to the first-team, as he played the full 90 minutes against both West Ham and Aston Villa in the league.
Ten Hag and the five-time Ballon d’Or winner had appeared to put their issues in the past as they both focus on the job at hand.
The Portugal international was absent from the travelling squad for the 2-1 victory over Fulham on Sunday afternoon, as the 37-year-old missed United’s final match ahead of the World Cup break.
