Man Utd release Cristiano Ronaldo statement after explosive interview
Manchester United has broken its silence on Cristiano Ronaldo’s controversial interview with Piers Morgan. Ronaldo caused an uproar among United fans and some of his former professional teammates for comments he made in a partially broadcast interview on Sunday night.
The 37-year-old launched a stinging attack on club legend Wayne Rooney as he claimed he feels like he’s been passed off as the “black sheep” at United. The most pointed comments were reserved for both Ralf Rangnick and Erik ten Hag, with Ronaldo admitting he had little or no respect for them.
Sunday’s reveal was just part of what will come out in Morgan’s 90-minute interview with Ronaldo. The TalkTV presenter said Ronaldo approached him for the interview and teased more explosive revelations later this week.
He now faces punishment from United for his comments, but the club have announced they have not yet decided what action to take. The statement read: “Manchester United takes note of the media coverage regarding an interview of Cristiano Ronaldo.
“The club will consider their response after all the facts have been established. Our focus remains on preparing for the second half of the season and continuing the momentum, trust and bond that is being built between the players, the manager, the staff and the fans.
Ronaldo has already faced punishment from United this season after refusing to come off the bench against Tottenham. Ten Hag called Ronaldo in as a late substitute, but the attacker walked down the tunnel and left the game early.
