Manchester United release official statement regarding Cristiano Ronaldo – Man United News And Transfer News

Manchester United have issued a statement in recognition of the ongoing media coverage surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo’s interview with Piers Morgan which was mocked by the presenter yesterday.

It reads: “Manchester United take note of the media coverage regarding a Cristiano Ronaldo interview.”

“The club will consider its response after all the facts have been established.”

“Our focus remains on preparing for the second half of the season and continuing the momentum, belief and togetherness that is being built between the players, manager, staff and fans.”

It comes after Ronaldo made several claims about the club and people linked to Manchester United in his interview for ‘Piers Morgan Uncensored’.

He claimed that boss Erik Ten Hag is actively forcing him out of the club and feels betrayed by the way the club has treated him upon his return.

Speaking of Ten Hag, he said, “I don’t respect him because he doesn’t show respect for me. If you don’t have respect for me, I’ll never have respect for you.”

He went on to accuse United of having no empathy when his daughter was ill and said little progress has been made since he left in 2009.

He also criticized the clubs’ owners, the Glazers, suggesting that the club was run by lesser people than those who ran it before he left.

The Portuguese international, who has scored 700 goals for the club, had few positive things to say about the club, but many critics came out and condemned the controversial interview.

This is the first official statement from Manchester United since the interview surfaced, but expect more updates on this matter in the days and weeks to come.

The Glazers and Ten Hag are reported to have met today to discuss how to proceed with the matter.
