Cristiano Ronaldo confided in the English journalist Piers Morgan and did not spare Manchester United, his coach and his leaders, with whom his relations have been more than strained for several weeks. ” I feel betrayed “assured the five-time winner of the Ballon d’Or. “I felt that some people didn’t want me here, not only this season, but last season too”he says in an extract unveiled this Sunday evening.
“I have no respect for Erik ten Hag”
Ronaldo (37) also settles his accounts with the coach, Erik ten Hag, who has often dismissed him from the field this season. “I have no respect for Erik ten Hag because he shows no respect to me, explains the former Real Madrid player. If you don’t have respect for me, I will never have any for you. »
CR7 also tackled his former teammate Wayne Rooney, who took the liberty of criticizing him: “I don’t know why he criticized me so harshly, probably because he’s finished his career and I’m still playing at the top level”he supposes before adding with a laugh: “I’m not going to say that I’m more handsome than him.

A club of this size should be at the top in my opinion and unfortunately this is not the case. […] Since Sir Alex left, I haven’t seen any development at this club. Nothing has changed. […] As Picasso said, you have to destroy in order to rebuild and if it starts with me, that’s fine with me. I love Manchester United, I love their fans, they are always by my side. But if they want to do things differently, they have to change many, many things. »
