The statement continued, “I wish the team every success for the remainder of the season and for the future.” Ronaldo joined Manchester United in 2021. The athlete’s contract wasn’t set to expire until the summer. The exit comes on the heels of Ronaldo’s interview with Piers Morgan, where he said that he felt “betrayed” by the team’s head coach and executives. “Yes, I felt betrayed and I felt like some people don’t want me here, not only this year, but last year too,” he said during the Piers Morgan Uncensored interview. 

Ronaldo stated during the interview that he had no “respect” for team manager Erik ten Hag. Manchester United released a statement after the interview indicating that they were “aware of the media coverage” regarding the interview and would “consider its response once the full facts are established.” The statement continued, “Our focus remains on preparing for the second half of the season and maintaining the momentum, belief, and togetherness among players, staff, and fans.”
