Cristiano Ronaldo tells Piers Morgan “he’s feels betrayed” by club and he has no respect for Ten Haag

Cristiano Ronaldo has claimed he has “no respect” for manager Erik ten Haag and accused the club of betraying him and trying to force him out.

In an exclusive interview with Piers Morgan, Cristiano Ronaldo has opened up about his feelings towards the club and with manager Eric Ten Haag, he said he feels “betrayed” by Manchester United and believes that the club have been trying to force him out.

The Portuguese forward claimed that Erik ten Hag and senior executives want him out of Old Trafford.

The 37-year-old has been subject to speculation after being dropped to the bench and leaving a Tottenham match after refusing to come on as substitute and he’s basically dropped down the pecking order in Manchester United since the arrival of Manager Ten Haag.

When asked whether he felt the club were trying to force him out, Ronaldo told Morgan: “Yes. Not only the coach, but the other two or three guys around the club. I felt betrayed.”

“Honestly, I don’t know if I should say this, but I don’t care. People should hear the truth. Yes, I feel betrayed. Some people don’t want me here not only this year, but last year too.”

When asked on his relationship with Ten Hag, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner refused to hold back and said that he had no respect for his manager.

“I don’t have respect for him because he doesn’t show respect for me. If you don’t have respect for me, I’m never gonna have respect for you,” he added.

The striker was United’s leading scorer last season with 24 in 38 games across all competitions, but he has been forced to settle for a reduced role this term and has only managed three goals in 16 outings overall.

For club and country, Ronaldo has scored 818 goals in 1,142 appearances throughout his illustrious career, winning 32 trophies including five Champions Leagues and the 2016 European Championship with his country.

Ronaldo will hope to add a World Cup crown to his trophy cabinet in Qatar this winter, with Portugal drawn alongside Ghana, Uruguay and South Korea in Group H.
