RONALDO TO LEAVE MAN UTD IMMEDIATELY BY MUTUAL CONSENT
Man Utd issued a statement on Tuesday evening announcing they had reached a mutual agreement with Cristiano Ronaldo to terminate his contract; Ronaldo added: “I love Manchester United and I love the fans, that will never ever change”
Cristiano Ronaldo is to leave Manchester United by mutual agreement with immediate effect following his explosive interview with Piers Morgan.
United issued a 67-word statement on Tuesday evening announcing they had reached a mutual agreement with the player to terminate his contract.
Ronaldo’s interview on TalkTV – aired in two parts on Wednesday and Thursday last week – saw the 37-year-old criticise the club and manager Erik ten Hag, who the player says he has “no respect” for.
Ronaldo also claimed members of the United hierarchy are trying to force him out of Old Trafford and doubted him when he said he could not attend pre-season because his daughter was ill in hospital.
United said they would consider their response to Ronaldo’s comments “after the full facts have been established” and have now decided to part ways with the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
