Ronaldo says he wants the best for the club, but the club has been sideling him since Manager Erik Tag Hag.

Five-time Ballon d´Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo has said that the manager Erik Ten Hag along with the other senior executives are trying to force him out of Manchester United. According to a report by the Independent, Ronaldo claims that ever since his return to the team, he has been kept on the sidelines on the pitch, ever since Ten Hag has taken charge of the team.  

While talking about Ten Hag in an interview on Sunday, November 13, said, “I don’t have respect for him because he doesn’t show respect for me”, adding, “Not only the coach but another two or three guys around the club. I felt betrayed.”  

When questioned about the senior club members trying to get him out, Ronaldo said that he felt that some people do not want him in the team. “Yes, I felt betrayed and not only this year but last year too”, he added.   

The report states that last month, while playing a game against Tottenham Hotspur, Ten Had claimed that Ronaldo refused to come as a substitute. He then walked down the tunnel with a few minutes remaining still, according to the Manchester United manager. Following that match, he was also not chosen to face the Chelsea game. 

Ronaldo then made a comeback in recent weeks and even managed to captain the team in a 3-1 loss at Aston Villa, a week ago. He was absent again for a game against Fulham before the players started a six-week break for the FIFA World Cup 2022.
