Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo said on Sunday he felt “betrayed” by his club Manchester United, which turned him into a “black sheep” who are blamed for everything that has gone wrong with the entity, and he believes who is now forced to leave.
“Manchester United tried to kick me out. Not only the manager, but also the rest of the people around the club. I felt betrayed,” Cristiano Ronaldo told English journalist Piers Morgan.
“I feel some people didn’t want me at Manchester United, not just this year, but last season too,” he added.
Referring to his recent managers at United, the Portuguese said he only respects Norway’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who was sacked just weeks after Cristiano Ronaldo returned to the club.
On Ralf Rangnick he said: “If you’re not even a manager, how can you be the boss of Manchester United? I’ve never heard of him.”
Of Erik Ten Hag, who suspended Ronaldo last month for refusing a last-minute substitute against Tottenham, he said: “I have no respect for him because he doesn’t show me respect. If he doesn’t respect me, I will never respect him.” “.
Also to his former teammate, Wayne Rooney, who is very critical of the Portuguese: “I don’t know why he criticizes me so much… probably because he’s finished his career and I still play at a high level. I’m not going to say I have a I look better than him, which is true.”
Ronaldo says Old Trafford officials came to doubt him when he explained why he couldn’t return, which made him feel “hurt” and “bad”.
