Manchester United Reacts To Ronaldo’s Controversial Interview
Manchester United has responded to the recent Cristiano Ronaldo’s interview with Piers Morgan.
Naija News recalls that the Portuguese striker revealed the “truth” about his recent transfer rumours and his problems with his manager during an interview with the broadcast journalist.
Naija News previously reported that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner moved claims that he was ‘betrayed’ by the club and used as a ‘black sheep’ when things go wrong in the club.
Additionally, the Portuguese attacker has criticized two of the three coaches he has played for since returning to Old Trafford.
The player was unable to contain himself while speaking to one of his former teammates, who had also suggested that the striker give up football or leave the squad.
The former Juventus striker contacted Morgan for the interview out of “frustration,” Morgan said, adding that this was the appropriate time to release the information about what was happening in the club to the public.
Manchester United issued the following statement on their website in reaction to the footage that has been making the rounds in the media: “Manchester united notes the media coverage regarding an interview by Cristiano Ronaldo. The club will consider its response after the full facts have been established.
“Our focus remains on preparing for the second half of the season and continuing the momentum, belief and togetherness being built among the players, manager, staff, and fans.”
On Sunday, Manchester United defeated Fulham in their penultimate game before the world cup.
However, the Club has six weeks during which the World Cup tournament goes on to consider the contentious matter.
