The Portuguese ace believes that Manchester United made no progress, unlike Real Madrid and Juventus, which followed recent technologies. He said both clubs have always tried to progress in terms of training, nutrition, and how to recover from games, but United is far behind.
Ronaldo has never had a great relationship with Manchester United coach Eric ten Hag. And things appeared to have fallen apart between them when he was called in as a substitute for a game, but he refused to honour the call. Instead, he stormed off the pitch and eventually left the stadium.
He issued a statement about his action soon after but stopped short of tendering an apology to the team and the coach. As a result, he was barred from training with the main team and from attending (playing) in their next two games.
His uncensored interview with Piers Morgan was intensely anticipated and generated mixed reactions at the end. The striker poured it all out during the interview and accused the club of betraying him.
Opinions about the interview, during which the Portuguese captain dwelled on several subjects, have been pretty mixed, with some tweeps saying he already has a legacy that his exit from United cannot destroy.
