“I felt Betrayed” Cristiano Ronaldo blasts Manchester United and Erik Ten Hag

Ronaldo has launched a scathing attack on the club and the manager

In an explosive interview with Piers Morgan, Cristiano Ronaldo said he felt betrayed and said senior officials at the club have tried to force him out. The interview is set to be broadcast this week on Britain’s TalkTV but advance clips were released late Sunday — just hours after United’s final game before the World Cup.

Ten Hag suspended the 37-year-old after refusing to appear as a substitute during the 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in October. Ronaldo has missed United’s past two games because of illness despite Erik Ten Hag insisting last week the striker was likely to be available for the trip to Fulham, which the Dutchman’s side won 2-1 on Sunday.

I don’t have respect for Erik Ten Hag, says Ronaldo

“I don’t have respect for him [Ten Hag] because he doesn’t show respect for me,” Ronaldo said in a fragment of the interview that will air in full on Wednesday on “Piers Morgan Uncensored.”

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

The Portugal star insisted that as opposed to rumors that he was looking for a way out of the club this summer, he said it was United and Ten Hag who pushed him toward the exit. “Manchester United tried to force me out,” he said.

Ronaldo says he has never heard of Ralf Rangnick

“I followed my heart,” Ronaldo said. “He [Ferguson] said to me, ‘It’s impossible for you to come to Manchester City,’ and I said, ‘OK, Boss.’

“The progress was zero. Since Sir Alex left, I saw no evolution in the club. Nothing had changed. He [Ferguson] knows better than anybody that the club is not on the path they deserve to be.

“He knows. Everyone knows. The people who don’t see that. It’s because they don’t want to see; they are blind.”
