I don’t have respect for Erik Ten Hag, Manchester United betrayed me – Cristiano Ronaldo speaks in explosive interview

In a fiery interview, Portuguese football star Cristiano Ronaldo attacked Manchester United and the team’s coach, Erik Ten Hag.

Ronaldo voiced his anger with the English club in an interview with Piers Morgan. Ronaldo has had a difficult season at Old Trafford, making just four Premier League appearances.

The 37-year-old claimed he felt “betrayed” by Manchester United for trying to drive him out of the club in interview excerpts released on Sunday, November 13.

He stated:

“Yes. not just the instructor, but also the other two or three male club members. I felt duped.

“He doesn’t treat me with respect, so I don’t respect him. I won’t ever have respect for you if you don’t have respect for me. I won’t ever have respect for you if you don’t have respect for me.

Ronaldo said that since Sir Alex Ferguson departed the club, nothing has changed. He stated:

“There was no advancement. I didn’t notice any change in the club after Sir Alex left. Nothing was different.

“Nothing is altered. not only the pool, jacuzzi, or even the gym. Even some technological aspects, the kitchen, and the chefs — great people, I think! They abruptly cease, which greatly astonished me.

“I anticipated seeing new infrastructure and technological advancements. Unfortunately, we witness a lot of stuff that I usually don’t see till I’m 21, 22, or 23. It greatly surprised me.

The footballer claimed that while he still wants the best for Manchester United, he simply believes that things are not being handled properly at Old Trafford.

Ronaldo declared

“I believe the fans deserve to know the reality. I want the club to succeed. I travel to Manchester United for this reason.

A club of this size should, in my opinion, be at the top of the tree, but they aren’t, regrettably. “But you have some things inside that don’t help (us) reach the top level as City, Liverpool, and even now Arsenal,” he continued.

Ronaldo, who gained notoriety after switching from Sporting Lisbon to Manchester United in 2003, also criticized the team’s previous interim manager, Ralf Rangnick. He said Rangnick shouldn’t have accepted the position.

Added him;

He cited the example of how Manchester United fired Ole (Gunnar Solskjaer) and hired Ralf Rangnick as their new sporting director, which he claimed was an interesting development.

He’s not even a coach, this guy! Not only did the hiring of a sporting director by a major club like Manchester United surprise me, but the entire world.
