Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo said in an interview with the British “Sun” that he is disappointed with the behavior of the current club because he feels that they have betrayed him.
Popular CR7 also responded to the criticism he received from former teammate Wayne Rooney.
“I don’t know why he criticizes me so harshly. Probably because he has already finished his career and I play at a high level. I won’t say that I look better than him… Which is true.”
Ronaldo commented on the previous coach Ralf Rangnik as well as how he spoke with Alex Ferguson before returning to Manchester.
“United brought in Ralf Rangnik, who is a sports director, not a coach. That surprised everyone, including me. How is it possible that such a club as United does not bring the right coach?! I had never heard of him. Nothing has changed here since Sir Alex Ferguson left. When I decided to return to United, I followed my heart, and Sir Alex told me that it was impossible for me to go to City. I answered him, ‘Okay, boss.'”
About the current situation at United and the past period, Ronaldo said:
“United tried to make me leave, not only the manager but also other people around the club. I feel betrayed. Some people don’t want me to be there, they didn’t want me in the previous season either. They made me a black sheep. As for manager Erik ten Hag, I don’t respect him because he didn’t show respect to me.“
