Ten Hag Fed Up, Wants to Sell Disgruntled Ronaldo

If manager Erik ten Hag has it his way, Cristiano Ronaldo won’t play another minute for Manchester United.

As reported by The Score, Ronaldo’s controversial tirade in an interview this week was the last straw, as Ten Hag informed Manchester United officials that he’s prepared to part with the 37-year-old, whom he feels has gone too far, reports ESPN’s Rob Dawson.

Ten Hag met with co-chairman Joel Glazer, chief executive Richard Arnold, and football director John Murtough on Monday to discuss Manchester United’s course of action after Ronaldo said he felt “betrayed” by the club.

The manager is ready to cut ties whether United sign a replacement in January or not, Dawson reports.

The Portuguese superstar accused the United chiefs of plotting to sell him last summer and said he doesn’t respect Ten Hag. Ronaldo also believes the club’s owners “don’t care” about the club.
Manchester United said in a statement that they are considering their response, and Dawson reports they are seeking legal advice.

Players are also upset at the timing of the explosive interview, as it was aired shortly after United’s dramatic win over Fulham on Sunday, Dawson adds.

A video of Ronaldo and United teammate Bruno Fernandes went viral Monday after the midfielder seemed to dismissively greet the forward at Portugal’s training base ahead of the 2022 World Cup.

Earlier this season, Ten Hag dropped Ronaldo against Chelsea after the veteran refused to come on as a substitute against Tottenham Hotspur in October.
