Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo has stated that he’s not friends with Wayne Rooney and Gary Neville during his interview with Piers Morgan Uncensored.
Ronaldo’s reply wouldn’t come down as a shock to many, given Rooney and Neville’s scathing assessments of the Portuguese star.
Rooney and Neville are in agreement that Manchester United have to move on from Cristiano Ronaldo because he’s no longer the force he once was.
Both former England internationals have urged Man United to offload Ronaldo as soon as possible and sign a younger player who can provide more than just scoring goals.
Rooney, during a conversation he had with talkSPORT earlier this month, said Cristiano Ronaldo is a ‘distraction’ Manchester United don’t need in their team.
Ronaldo has hit back at Wayne Rooney, suggesting that United’s all-time highest goalscorer is jealous of him.
Speaking to Piers Morgan, Ronaldo said: “Probably, he [Wayne Rooney] finished his career in his thirties, I’m still playing at a high level.”
When asked if he’s friends with his ex-teammates Rooney and Neville, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner said: “No, they are not my friends.
“It’s easy to criticise. I don’t know if they must criticise to be more famous.”
Ronaldo also might have played his last game as a Manchester United player two weekends ago against Aston Villa after he said that he has no respect for Erik ten Hag and that the Dutchman is forcing him out of the club.
