Ronaldo regrets Man United return *Says I’ve been betrayed *Rues Ferguson’s absence

Published

Cristiano Ronaldo, football prodigy and five-time winner of Balon D’or, has finally confirmed that he is not happy at Manchester United, his former club he returned to, last year after his historic sojourn through Spain and Italy.

Wave-making Ronaldo, who became a sensation under Sir Alex Ferguson at the English side, had left for Real Madrid in Spain and later Juventus in Italy, before touching back to base before the close of transfer windows in the 2021 season.

However, indications show that things have not been easy for the 37-year-old ever since, even under different coaches, with what looks like the real threat to his career coming under the current Man United Manager Erik ten Hag.

The  is Portuguese  captain, who semed to have yielded to pressure, opened up on what many has suspected as his current state at the Old Trafford, in an explosive interview with Piers Morgan on Sunday night, saying he felt “betrayed” by Manchester United by the club.

Stressing that there as an attempt to force him out of the club, he pointed in the direction of Hag and some other people, saying: “Yes. Not only the coach, but the other two or three guys around the club. I felt betrayed.”

Ronaldo, only second to Lionel Messi, with whom he shares a record 12 Balon D’or wins, said he had “no respect” for the United coach, since he “doesn’t show respect for me,” adding: “I don’t have respect for him because he doesn’t show respect for me. If you don’t have respect for me, I’m never gonna have respect for you.

“If you don’t have respect for me, I’m never gonna have respect for you.”

Apparently reminscing about the club under Ferguson, he said: “The progress was zero. Since Sir Alex left, I saw no evolution in the club. Nothing had changed. Nothing changes. Not only the jacuzzi, the pool, even the gym. Even some points of technology, the kitchen, the chefs – who I appreciate, lovely people! They stop in time which surprised me a lot.

“I thought I would see different things, technology, infrastructure. Unfortunately, we see many things I’m used to seeing when I’m 21, 22, 23. It surprised me a lot.

“For example, an interesting point is how a club like Manchester United sacked Ole (Gunnar Solskjaer), they bring in a sporting director Ralf Rangnick which is something nobody understands. This guy is not even a coach! A big club like Manchester United bringing in a sporting director surprised not only me but all the world.”

Ronaldo, whose current contract expires next summer, had joined United from Sporting Lisbon in 2003, from where he left for Madrid in 2009, then Juventus in 2018 before a bank-breaking, historic return August 2021.

Published

It would have been three in all, but with just part of the arms sticking out, was all it needed to cancel a beautiful freekick that would have sent Morocco in front at the nick of the first half after the Video Assisted Referee (VAR), was contacted.

But it did not deter the African side, 22 in the world ranking from their continuous onslaught, until the pressure paid off with another splendid freekick in the second half, from Abdelhamid Sabiri, which found its way at the back of the Belgian net, without touching anybody.

All attempts to equalise failed until well into three minutes of five minutes extra time, when a combination of a back-pass and one touch shot from Zakaria Aboukhlal, gave the African side, which had the best result ahead of the qualifiers without losing a match chance to complete the rout, becoming the first team in the continent to win a match in the ongoing global football event.
