Manchester United is having the worst hit of the season with the recent explosive interview by Ronaldo. The manager and players are reported to be “extremely disappointed” with the manner and timing of Cristiano Ronaldo’s interview.
In the explosive sit-down with Piers Morgan, Ronaldo claimed he has been “betrayed” by the Reds Devils and has no respect for Ten Hag.
According to Sky Sports, the club only found out about the interview as they flew back from London following their 2-1 win over Fulham.
They learned it was to be published that night as they boarded a flight from London to Manchester and are said to be upset with the manner and timing of its release.

The interview was released in conjunction with the Premier League breaking for the World Cup, with Ronaldo heading off to join his Portugal teammates.
Domestic football is now on the back burner with Ten Hag not due to speak to the press or make a decision at Man United until after the tournament in late December.
Ronaldo will likely leave United the following month in January as his interview appears to have burned bridges beyond repair at Old Trafford.
They also do not understand why Ronaldo has said what he has said and they are disappointed that he would disrespect the club, his manager and teammates in this way.
Ronaldo was informed on Thursday that he would not be starting against Fulham but he would have been in the squad. He then told the club he was ill.
United went on to win 2-1 at Craven Cottage, with Alejandro Garnacho scoring a last-ditch winner.
