Manchester United parted ways with Cristiano Ronaldo after the veteran forward gave an explosive TV interview in which he said he felt “betrayed” by the club and had no respect for Ten Hag.
Manchester United director Erik ten Hag said Friday that Cristiano Ronaldo noway told him he wanted to leave Old Trafford. United parted ways with the Portuguese star after the stager forward gave an explosive television interview in which he said he felt” betrayed” by the club and had no respect for Ten Hag.” I suppose it was relatively clear after the interview that he’d to leave. I suppose we did not have to bandy it,” Ten Hag told the Manchester Evening News
“I wanted him to stay from the first moment until now. He wanted to leave, it was relatively clear. And when a player surely does not want to be in this club also he has to go, clear.
“The interview I suppose, as a club, you can not accept. There will be consequences. To make that step he knew the consequences. Before he noway told me he wanted to leave.”
Ten Hag, speaking at United’s downtime training camp in Spain, claimed the 37- time-old, presently playing for Portugal at the FIFA World Cup, had indeed suggested at his desire to remain at the club before the season started.
Cristiano Ronaldo has lashed out at rumours claiming that he wanted to leave Portugal’s World Cup camp, having being dropped from the playing XI for the Round of 16 tie against Switzerland. Ronaldo started the game on the bench, and came out for the final 20 twinkles of the match, which Portugal won 6- 1, thanks to Goncalo Ramos’ chapeau- trick. Taking to social media, Ronaldo, still, claimed that the Portugal team is’ too strong to be broken by outside forces’.
“A group too close to be broken by outside forces. A nation too stalwart to let itself be frighted by any adversary. A platoon in the truest sense of the word, which will fight for the dream until the end! Believe with us! Strength, Portugal!,” Ronaldo wrote in Portuguese.
Ronaldo’s response comes after the Portugal Football Federation( FPF) denied that their most- limited player hovered to abandon the World Cup team after being benched against Switzerland.
“The FPF clarifies that at no time did the captain of the Selecao, Cristiano Ronaldo, hang to leave the public platoon during the stay in Qatar,” said the confederation.
“Every day Ronaldo is erecting up a unique track record at the service of the public platoon and the country, which must be admired.”
The FPF said Ronaldo’s appearance against Switzerland was a farther demonstration of his commitment to the cause.
“Until that moment he noway told me’ I want to leave’,” added the United master.
“In the summer, we had one talk. He came by and said’ I’ll tell you in seven days if I want to stay’. also he came back and said’ I want to stay’. Until that moment( the interview), I noway heard anything.”
The Portugal star made his name in his first spell at Old Trafford, developing from a raw but prodigiously blessed teenager into one of the world’s deadliest forwards.
He won three Premier League titles and the titleholders League at United but left in 2009 after six times for Real Madrid, where he came the club’s topmost goalscorer, winning the titleholders League four further times.
Ronaldo spent three times at Juventus from 2018 before a sensational return to Manchester last time. Know More FIFA News…
