In what is the least shocking bit of football news, Manchester United have cancelled the contract of Cristiano with immediate effect. CR7, who only rejoined the club in 2021, struggled this year after a stellar season last season.
What led to the contract termination was the now infamous interview with outspoken Talk TV, TV host Piers Morgan. In this wide-ranging interview, Ronaldo talks about some executives wanting him out of the club and some not believing his daughter was sick in the summer.
The 37-year-old had started the four games consecutively for The Red Devils but hadn’t played since the 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa on 6th November. With the arrival of Erik Ten Haag as manager, it appeared likely that the Portuguese legend’s time at United was numbered.
Cristiano talked about being betrayed and disrespected. Maybe this contract termination can help bring some focus on the criticisms of the poor running of the club. Which was an issue the former Real Madrid man passionately raised.
It’s been a real contentious issue ever since the American owners the Glazer family bought the club.
CR7, you deserve a fitting legacy to your career, here’s to hoping the next chapter in your life provides that.
