Cristiano Ronaldo sparked a controversy after his strong statements against Manchester United, coach Erik ten Hag, and against three other people whose identity he did not reveal.
“I feel betrayed because they have made me the black sheep. Not only the coach, there are two or three others who want me out of the club (…) I have no respect for Erik ten Hag because he shows no respect for me.< /strong> If you don't show me respect, I will never have it for you. There was no empathy with my son,” he said.
This would not have gone down well with the club, which would have already made a drastic decision with the Portuguese star. And it is that according to the main English media, the “Red Devils” will seek the termination of the striker's contract.
In addition, the Daily Star newspaper assured that United's intention is to sue Cristiano Ronaldo for breach of contract and apply a financial fine of one million pounds sterling (more than one billion Chilean pesos).
“Now they have decided to be as harsh as possible with the Portuguese superstar and they want to cancel the remaining six months of his contract,” the outlet said.
But not only that, the newspaper noted that “Ronaldo he has also been fined two weeks' wages of £1 million, and ordered not to return to the Carrington training complex.”
However, for now the club has chosen to remain silent. In a statement published this Friday on their official website, they indicated that “Manchester United published another statement on the recent interview with Cristiano Ronaldo in England. This morning, the club began to take its first steps in response to the recent note that the soccer player provided in the media.”
“The institution will not make any further comments until this process comes to an end,” he added.
Currently Ronaldo continues to focus on Portugal to play in the World Cup in Qatar 2022, where he is part of group H along with Ghana, Uruguay and South Korea.
