Ronaldo’s United teammates struggle to understand why the 37-year-old took part
According to Sky Sports, Erik Ten Hag and the Manchester United players are extremely disappointed with the manner and timing of the interview with Ronaldo.
The club are said to have heard the interview as they prepared to fly back from their 2-1 win over Fulham on Sunday.
As a result, United would consider ‘all options’ when it comes to Ronaldo’s future at Old Trafford.
The club’s management and Ronaldo’s teammates are said to be confused by the 37-year-old’s actions.
They are “hugely disappointed” in him and believe that he disrespects the club, the current manager and his teammates.
During the interview, he claimed he had felt ‘betrayed’ by Manchester United since his return
Ronaldo also admitted he has no respect for current Manchester United boss Erik Ten Hag
They believe Ronaldo was treated with respect at the club, even after he asked to leave and after he refused to fill in as a replacement for Tottenham.
Therefore, they do not understand why Ronaldo would tarnish the club’s reputation by conducting such an explosive interview.
Sky Sports has also stated that Ronaldo was told on Thursday that he would not be in United’s base against Fulham.
However, the Portuguese international was told that he would be included in Ten Hag’s match selection.
Ronaldo is said to have told the club that he was “ill” and that he could not travel to the game with the team.
Ronaldo’s teammates don’t know why he would damage the club’s reputation
That’s why the Manchester United hierarchy was even more frustrated when the interview surfaced after the game.
During the interview, Ronaldo accused Ten Hag and United executives of trying to force him out of the club.
The 37-year-old admitted he had no respect for the Dutch manager and said he felt “betrayed” by the club.
Ronaldo then hit back at Wayne Rooney after his former team-mate criticized his behavior at Man United this season.
Ronaldo also accused United of a lack of ’empathy’ after club officials doubted him when he returned late for the season due to his daughter’s illness.
Ronaldo’s United teammates reportedly feel ‘disrespected’ by Morgan interview
Fans were quick to respond to the interview, saying on Twitter that the Portuguese captain had “ruined his legacy” and turned Old Trafford into a circus.
One fan tweeted: ‘The sooner Ronaldo leaves, the better. What an absolute circus he creates. Not necessary and United are a better TEAM without him.’
Another said: ‘Ronaldo has ruined his legacy as a footballer and as a person. His ego ruined everything, it’s a shame his career ended like this.’
