On Thursday night, the second segment of Cristiano Ronaldo's interview with Piers Morgan was broadcast, and the Man United player's explanations were very revealing.
Before we go any further, let's make sure we're on the same page about a few things: Cristiano Ronaldo is a phenomenal footballer who is widely regarded as one of the best players in the history of the game. He is also the recipient of virtually every award that can be bestowed upon a footballer.
However, after the conclusion of the explosive interview that Ronaldo had with Piers Morgan on Thursday evening, he would not be in the running to win the award for the football player with the best attitude and the highest level of respect. If such a prize were given out, Ronaldo would not be a candidate for it. As was depicted in the small social media nuggets that we had seen earlier in the week, Ronaldo used his sit-down chat with the former presenter of Good Morning Britain to fire shots at Manchester United and at manager Erik ten Hag.

After opening up in the first part of the interview about his failed move to Manchester City, the credibility of Ralf Rangnick, and the heartbreaking loss of his infant son, Ronaldo's comments in the second part of the interview were much more damning and tasteless when it came to talking about football. Even though he did admit that he regretted his actions, he gave an explanation that was not only squeamish but also disrespectful towards Ten Hag. This was the first time that he opened up about his refusal to step off the substitutes bench against Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford last month.
In an interview with Piers Morgan Uncensored, Cristiano Ronaldo said, "Piers, I will be honest with you, it's something that I regret, to leave the stadium (against Tottenham)" "Most likely, but it could be no; I'm not entirely sure.
"It is difficult for me to give you an answer that is one hundred percent accurate, but let's just say that I regret [it], but at the same time, I felt provoked by the coach. It is against the rules for a coach to insert me into a game for more than three minutes at a time. I'm sorry, but I don't play games like that. I am aware of the contributions that I can make to the team.
"Don't try to convince me that the best players, the guys who want everything, and the crucial players will only play for three minutes. It's time to face reality: this can't stand.
Ronaldo was quoted as saying that he is aware of what he can 'give the team.' A cursory examination of his statistics up to this point in the season reveals that the contribution he has made to the team through a total of 16 games is just three goals. You can hardly call this the contribution that you'd anticipate from a key player, can you?
This season, he has scored three goals for United, one of which was a penalty and one of which was a sloppy shot that was rebounded. Although it is true that every goal is important, and that every footballer is pleased with any goal that they score, these goals were hardly signs that Ronaldo is the most important player on this United squad as he believes he is.
Ronaldo went into detail, in the first part of his interview with Morgan, about how he wants to be a player who can lead by example, almost like an inspirational figure for football players of the next generation to look up to. Morgan was the one who conducted the interview. The very next thing that came out of his mouth was a statement about how, in the end, he is an exceptionally good player who should not be used in the final few minutes of a game. This is not exactly the way to lead by example.
Because of this, in the long run, Ten Hag has been able to garner even more support as a direct result of this interview. The support that the Dutchman has gained for ending the player power era at Old Trafford, something that almost every supporter was sick to the back teeth of by the end of last season, should not just disappear because Ronaldo, a figure with 497 million Instagram followers, has tried to throw the cat among the pigeons and put the focus back on him. The Dutchman has ended the player power era at Old Trafford, something that almost every supporter was sick to the back teeth of by the end of
It is because of this reason that Ten Hag's post-match analysis of his team's 2-1 win at Fulham the previous weekend is so important in this situation, and it is something that should be remembered. The Dutchman used his last TV interview before the break for the World Cup to not only reflect on his team's dramatic win but also the progress that has been made this season. He said this while he was leaving for the break.
Ten Hag was quoted as saying to Sky Sports, "We have a base, and we go in the right direction." "There has been a shift in mentality, as well as in culture and attitude. You saw that happen today, with the winner being determined in the nick of time."We have unity thanks to the support of the fans. We stand together as one."
Even though it was already obvious, Ronaldo's bombshell interview, which was released just hours after Ten Hag signed off for the World Cup, has confirmed that he is most definitely not aligned with Ten Hag's vision to move United forward for the better. The interview was revealed just hours after Ten Hag signed off for the World Cup. His conversation with Morgan, which was more of a public relations stunt than an actual interview due to the fact that he was not challenged on a single subject, provided sufficient evidence to suggest that his career with United is at an end.
Given that he has completely changed the atmosphere at Old Trafford, Ten Hag, who is known to be a strict disciplinarian, is not likely to have taken kindly to Ronaldo's comments. The Portuguese international portrayed himself as someone who feels they are bigger than United, a club steeped in history, tradition, and high values. He said this to give the impression that he is bigger than United.
It was once said by Sir Alex Ferguson that a player should be let go as soon as they feel that they are more important to the club than the club itself. It is now Ronaldo's turn to leave the team.
