Cristiano Ronaldo’s verbal attack on Wayne Rooney during his controversial ‘Piers Morgan Uncensored’ interview left his former Manchester United teammate stumped. And Rooney has made his position clear in response to the 37-year-old striker’s insightful comments.
Rooney and Gary Neville have made it on record this season by suggesting United are a better team without Ronaldo, and need to accept a reduced role at their age. But the Portuguese star has not accepted what he believes to be criticism, criticizing the couple and stating that they are “not his friends”.
He told Piers Morgan: “I don’t understand [the criticism]. You should ask him this question. [Rooney]but I don’t know why he criticizes me so much… He finished his career in [his] 30 years So, I’m still playing [at a] high level. I’m not going to say that I look better than him, which is true, but… It’s hard to hear that kind of criticism and negativity from people who play you, like Gary Neville, too. .
“People can have their own opinion, but they don’t really know what’s going on. For example, inside the training ground and Carrington or even my life. They also have to listen to my point of view. Because it’s easy to criticize.” , but if you don’t know the whole story, it’s easy. They are not my friends”.

According to Sky Sports, Rooney is “perplexed” by his former United friend’s comments, especially the No7’s belief that he has unfairly criticized him during his second spell at Old Trafford. The DC United manager has maintained that Ronaldo, along with Lionel Messi, is one of the two best players in the world.
However, he has stressed that he cannot expect to play every game at this stage of his career and must accept the situation at a club the size of the Red Devils. The report adds that Rooney will refuse to speak about the matter publicly and has insisted that he has no animosity towards the deranged superstar.
