Cristiano Ronaldo has broken his silence after an explosive interview with Piers Morgan, who is an Arsenal fan. In the interview, he criticized Wayne Rooney, Gary Neville, Erik Ten Hag, the Glazer family, and top executives at Manchester United.
Less than a day after the interview went viral, Ronaldo shared a photo of himself on Twitter showing when he was training alongside several of his international team-mates on Monday, November 14.
“Total and absolute focus on the work of the National Team”, Ronaldo captioned the picture. “A united group, towards a single objective: to fulfill the dream of all Portuguese people!”
The Portuguese star hit out at Manchester United for betraying him, making him feel like a black sheep, and blaming him for everything that happened, even after scoring 24 goals last season.
The player blasted Erik Ten Hag and criticized the glazers for not working toward the success of the club. Also in the newly released interview with Piers Morgan, Ronaldo claimed that Glazers runs the club like a marketing company.
What the club owners always think about is how to make money from the sales of shirts and other forms of advertising.
In terms of sporting activities, the club’s focus seems to fall back on achieving success at the club.
They are currently behind the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Arsenal. Winning trophies has always been a second thought for the club.
Louis Van Gaal, Jose Mourinho, Zlatan Ibrahimovich, and Alexis Sanchez had criticized the club’s sporting activities. Cristiano Ronaldo believes if he exposes the truth, everything will change at Old Trafford.
Possible Punishment For Cristiano Ronaldo
Manchester United are seeking the attention of a lawyer to discuss how to resolve the Cristiano Ronaldo issue. The club is also looking forward to fining Cristiano Ronaldo £1 million.
It is also possible that they tear up his contract and send him to another club. After the World Cup, Cristiano Ronaldo is likely not to play for Manchester United again.
