Cristiano Ronaldo in a recent interview with Piers Morgan decided to hit back at his former teammate and Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney.
Rooney had recently criticized Ronaldo for his unacceptable behaviour when he refused to come on against Spurs and even accused him of being an unwanted distraction to the club.
Ronaldo then decided to hit back at United's all-time top scorer and said that Rooney is jealous of him because he is still playing at the highest level at 37 while Rooney had to retire early.
The comments didn't sit well with United fans as the majority of them are in support of Wayne Rooney. Certain fans are now urging the club to terminate Ronaldo's contract as soon as possible.
Rooney is currently managing DC United in the MLS after leaving Derby County. He got relegated with Derby last season after they were given a 21-point deduction for entering administration.
Ronaldo also fired shots at the current United manager Ten Hag and former caretaker manager Ralf Rangnick. He said he doesn’t respect Ten Hag and admitted that he had never heard of Rangnick before.
Manchester United are yet to respond to the comments and it looks likely that Ronaldo will be forced to leave the club. The Portuguese star still has 8 months left in his contract.
