Cristiano Ronaldo Says Erik Ten Hag Does Not Respect Him
After criticising Manchester United for their understanding of his pre-season absence, the Portuguese star refused to start the first game against the Red Devils. While this is understandable, the players felt it went too far by calling for him to be dropped. Meanwhile, Ten Hag is among those who thinks that Ronaldo has gone too far by saying that he does not respect the Dutch.
Ronaldo criticised United’s understanding of his absence in pre-season
During an interview with Piers Morgan, Cristiano Ronaldo criticised Manchester United’s understanding of his absence during pre-season. The Portuguese striker claimed the senior players did not believe him when he stayed back home to care for his infant daughter. He also criticised former teammates Wayne Rooney and Gary Neville for speaking out against him.
After a disappointing first season at Manchester United, Ronaldo is reportedly considering leaving the club in the summer. The club finished sixth last season and have failed to qualify for the Champions League, and the Portuguese star is reportedly unhappy with the club’s transfer policy. He has also been reportedly forced to accept a pay cut after the team failed to qualify for the competition.

In response to this, the Portuguese striker claimed that United’s owners do not care about his welfare, and the club should do more to promote him. He has criticised United’s understanding of his absence from pre-season tours in Thailand and Australia. He claims that United did not believe his explanation that his daughter was in hospital. In the end, he was able to attend United’s pre-season tour despite being absent due to family problems. Despite his absence from pre-season training, United’s spokesman Erik ten Hag publicly reiterated that the club would continue to work with the player.
Ronaldo refused to come off the bench against Man Utd
Cristiano Ronaldo has complained that Manchester United have failed to support him after he refused to make his debut against Tottenham Hotspur. The Portuguese star returned to Old Trafford at the start of last season but has struggled to make an impact since the arrival of new coach Erik Ten Hag. He was dropped from the starting line-up for the match against Tottenham Hotspur and did not feature against Chelsea.
During Wednesday’s 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur, Ronaldo refused to come on as a substitute. He left the stadium before the full-time whistle, sparking widespread criticism. Erik ten Hag, United’s head coach, later confirmed that the forward did indeed leave the stadium before the end of the game. As a result, the Portuguese winger was dropped from the squad for the match against Chelsea.
The situation has been exacerbated by the fact that Ronaldo left Old Trafford early after the 2-0 victory. This left his manager with no option but to react. As a result, Ronaldo was fined and forced to train alone. However, he returned to first-team training on Tuesday. Afterwards, the two men had a “clear-air talk” and he is believed to have apologised to Ten Hag.
Ten Hag believes Ronaldo has gone too far by saying he doesn’t respect the Dutch
According to a recent interview by Piers Morgan Uncensored, Cristiano Ronaldo has claimed that Erik ten Hag does not respect him. The Dutch manager has recently shifted Ronaldo from being a sure starter to being a bench warmer. As a result, Ronaldo has been criticised and has hit back in a brutal way.
While there is no official confirmation from the club, the Portuguese forward’s comments have caused a major uproar in the footballing world. They come after the Portuguese forward’s controversial interview in which he said he would never respect a Dutch coach. The resulting controversy has already cost him his place at Manchester United, with the Portuguese striker being fined two weeks’ wages. The Portuguese star has since refused to play in the Manchester United first team against Tottenham, and he stormed out before the game was finished.
The Portuguese striker has also recently spoken out against former Manchester United manager Fred Wright. Ronaldo’s comments were met with widespread criticism and, at the time of writing, Manchester United were quick to respond. The Portuguese striker reportedly claimed that he felt betrayed by ten Hag, and that he has been ‘dismissed’ by his former manager.
