Manchester United react after Cristiano Ronaldo allegation

Manchester United have reportedly declined to make a comment to Cristiano Ronaldo’s claim that Erik ten Hag and others are forcing him out of the club during an interview with Piers Morgan.

Ronaldo said in an uncensored interview that manager Erik ten Hag and two to three others at the club are forcing him out of Man United.

The Red Devils resigned him from Juventus last year in an effort to help put the club back to the top but the opposite was the result.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer got sacked in November less than two months after Ronaldo’s return as Manchester United finished 6th with zero goal difference under interim boss Ralf Rangnick.

Erik ten Hag replaced the Norwegian on a permanent basis at the end of last season and voiced out on several occasions that Cristiano Ronaldo is part of his plans.

However, Ronaldo is obviously not a regular starter under Ten Hag and last month, the Dutchman froze him out of the team after the Portuguese star stormed down the tunnel late in the game between Tottenham and Manchester United in London.

Ronaldo has come forward to reveal that the former Ajax manager might have been lying to the press when he claimed that the Dutchman doesn’t want him at the club and there are three people backing him on this course.

Speaking to Piers Morgan, the 37-year-old said: “Yes [I feel like I’m being forced out], by not only the coach [Erik ten Hag], but two or three guys around the club [senior executives].

“Yes, I feel betrayed. I felt that some people, they don’t want me here – not only this year, but last year too.”

According to Telegraph journalist James Ducker, Manchester United have refused to comment on Cristiano Ronaldo’s allegations as they don’t want to be distracted from the 2-1 victory the team recorded at Fulham.

Cristiano Ronaldo also confessed that he doesn’t respect Erik ten Hag because the Dutchman doesn’t respect him.

This has sparked ideas that the former Real Madrid forward may have played his last game for Manchester United against Aston Villa last weekend in the Premier League as they believe Erik ten Hag, who has total control of the squad, is capable of frozen him out of the team until the transfer market reopens in January, given how he treated the five-time Ballon d’Or winner after his behaviour at Tottenham.
