Big Decision from Ronaldo

On the eve of the World Cup, the 37-year-old attacker gave an angry interview in which he slammed manager Erik ten Hag and the club’s owners. United announced last week that it had “taken relevant procedures” in reaction to Ronaldo’s remarks. Cristiano Ronaldo has agreed to leave Manchester United with immediate effect,” the club announced in a statement. “The club appreciates him for his enormous contribution during two periods at Old Trafford, scoring 145 goals in 346 games, and wishes him and his family the best of luck in the future.”

Ronaldo, who is now representing Portugal at the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, said in a statement on Tuesday that he adored the club and its supporters. “That will never change,” he said. “However, it appears that the time has come for me to pursue a new challenge.” I wish the club the best of luck for the rest of the season and in the future.”

During an interview prior to the World Cup, Ronaldo stated that the club’s American owners, the Glazer family, were significantly more concerned with the club’s financial potential than with performances on the field. The Glazers have long been unpopular among united supporters, with their 17-year rule characterized by diminishing on-field performance and fan demonstrations.

According to Sky News, the Glazers were ready to publicly declare their desire to investigate potential sources of outside investment, which might include an auction of United, with a whole or partial sale, strategic cooperation with third parties, or other alternatives.

United has not won the Premier League championship since 2013 and has fired multiple managers since Alex Ferguson’s departure. They also failed to qualify for the Champions League this season, which may have spurred Ronaldo to appear to push for a move during the pre-season transfer window. Meanwhile, former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand stated that both Ronaldo and the club had received their desired outcome.

Cristiano certainly did that interview with the attitude that he wasn’t happy and wanted to leave the club,” Ferdinand, who played alongside Ronaldo at Manchester United, told the BBC. “He made it quite apparent. I believe Erik ten Hag also achieved what he wanted in this circumstance.” We may proceed now that both sides are satisfied. Ronaldo was obviously irritated by his diminished stature at United, which was no longer at the pinnacle of English football.
