Former Real Madrid forward Antonio Cassano has slammed Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo for his recent outburst against his own club in an explosive interview.
Ronaldo, 37, has been in the headlines since before the start of the ongoing 2022-23 season due to speculation about his future with the Red Devils. After eventually staying at the club, he has been reduced to appearances off the bench under new boss Erik ten Hag.
During a recent interview with TV presenter Piers Morgan, the Portuguese striker launched an attack against Ten Hag and the Red Devils. He claimed that he does not respect the former Ajax boss and felt betrayed by the Old Trafford outfit for forcing him out of the club.
Speaking to BoboTV, Cassano shared his thoughts on the five-time Ballon d'Or winner's recent comments about his club.
He said, "Now, I say that he does not have the courage to admit that for three years he is no longer himself. This year he had to go to Sporting Lisbon and then quit after the World Cup. He's a problem for the coaches, he puts his teammates in trouble."
Advising the forward on his future, Cassano added, "He didn’t even call [Karim] Benzema to congratulate him [on winning the Ballon d'Or]. He has a blindfold in front of his eyes and thinks he can play until he's 50. Dear Ronaldo, I tell you one thing: finish big with the World Cup. He can't keep throwing tantrums and he can't think he can still play at a high level."
