Cristiano Ronaldo Says He Is Being Forced Out Of Manchester United

In an explosive interview on Sunday, Cristiano Ronaldo claimed he felt betrayed by Manchester United and that the team's manager Erik ten Hag and other top officials are trying to get rid of him.

Since Ten Hag became United's manager in May, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner has played just a supporting role.

Ronaldo was punished for declining to play as a substitute in a 2-0 victory over Tottenham last month, but he has since made a comeback. Last weekend, in a 3-1 loss at Aston Villa, he even captained the Red Devils.

The 37-year-old was not there for United's final game before a six-week break for the World Cup, a 2-1 triumph against Fulham on Sunday.

In an interview with the Piers Morgan Uncensored TV program, Ronaldo remarked about Ten Hag, "I don't have regard for him because he doesn't show respect for me, not just the coach, but also additional two or three male club members. I felt duped".

Ronaldo responded, "Yes, I felt deceived and I felt like some people don't want me here, not only this year but last year", when asked again if senior club executives were attempting to remove him.

In August 2021, Ronaldo made his way back to Old Trafford from Juventus.
