Ten Hag said Ronaldo did not tell him about his desire to leave Manchester United.

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag spoke about the scandalous interview with Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo.

Recall that in November, Manchester United announced the termination of the contract with Ronaldo by mutual agreement of the parties. The forward had previously stated in an interview with British journalist Piers Morgan that United betrayed him. The Portuguese criticized the club’s management and coaching staff, stating that he did not respect Erik ten Hag.

“After the interview, I think it was pretty clear that he had to go. I guess we shouldn’t have discussed that. Everything was very clear.

I’ve seen most of the interview. I had to do this. It’s part of my job. I went when the UEFA coaches congress came out.

From day one until today, I wanted Ronaldo to stay. But he wanted to go, that was obvious. If a player does not want to be in a club, he has to leave.

The club cannot miss an interview like this. In taking this step, he knew the consequences. He never told me about his desire to break up before, ”says expert quotes Manchester Evening News.

In the last match of the Portuguese national team in the World Cup played in Qatar, Ronaldo remained in the bench. The 37-year-old striker appeared in the match against Switzerland only in the 74th minute. Goncalo Ramos, who replaced him at the start, scored a hat-trick.

Ronaldo appeared in all three games of the group stage, one of which he did not play completely. After that, the Portuguese expressed dissatisfaction with the playing time and the choice of head coach Fernando Santos. A goal was scored for Ronaldo (from the penalty spot) in this World Cup.

Valery Karpin, former coach of the Russian national team discretion Eric ten Hag and Fernando Santos’ decision to take Cristiano Ronaldo to the bench.
