In response to Cristiano Ronaldo’s harsh criticism of Manchester United, the club is prepared to terminate the player’s contract.
Ronaldo’s explosive interview
Clips from the 90-minute interview with Talk TV have been released, in which Ronaldo explicitly criticizes senior Man Utd executives, saying they were “blind” to the club’s condition and that coach Erik ten Hag treated him disrespectfully.
There is consensus that some of Ronaldo’s frank observations are correct; yet, it comes as no surprise that the player’s statements did not sit well with his managers.
Ronaldo’s old teammate Rio Ferdinand said, “The love affair with United is ended. The chapter has ended.
He had tricked the club into a corner from which they could not escape.
Whether or not anyone at the club wants to keep Cristiano, they cannot after what he stated.
Manchester United won’t let anyone bigger than the club
According to the latest football transfer news, Manchester United are said to be ready to liquidate Ronaldo’s contract as soon as the World Cup in Qatar takes place.
After yesterday’s meeting between angry manager Ten Hag and Old Trafford officials, the club is now weighing its legal options.
The team believes Ronaldo is undermining the progress accomplished and the unity built by their new Dutch manager.
In a statement, the club mentioned the momentum Ten Hag are generating and how they won’t let anything stand in the way of their quest to reclaim their place at the top of English soccer.
It said, “Our attention is still on the second half of the season as we work to maintain the momentum, trust, and unity established among players, coaches, staff, and fans.”
Numerous teams would be interested in Ronaldo’s services if he became available on a free transfer following his release from United.
Sporting Lisbon, his original club, is interested in him, and Chelsea owner Todd Boehly will certainly pique his interest in the upcoming summer. Professional soccer teams from the MLS are also taking notice.
