“The club thanks him for his immense contribution over two spells at Old Trafford, scoring 145 goals in 346 appearances, and wishes him and his family good luck for the future. Everyone at Manchester United remains focused on continuing the team’s progress under Erik ten Hag and working together to achieve success on the pitch. »

Substitute in Manchester for a few weeks, Ronaldo had let go in an interview published on November 14. He said in particular that he felt “betrayed” by the club and that he had “no respect” for manager Erik ten Hag. MU announced on Friday that it had “triggered appropriate measures” towards the player.
