Cristiano Ronaldo has insisted he feels “betrayed” by Manchester United and is being “forced out” out of the club in a bombshell interview.

The 37-year-old was not in the squad for United’s final Premier League game ahead of the FIFA World Cup break.

Ronaldo has had his run-ins with Erik Ten Hag this season and is now seemingly prepared to walk away from the club in January, giving an explosive interview to Piers Morgan.

During the 90 minute conversation on Piers Uncensored, Ronaldo insisted he is being forced out of the club by Ten Hag and some other senior officials.

Morgan: “They’re trying to force you out?”

Ronaldo: “Yes, not only the coach but also other two or three guys around the club.”

Morgan: “At senior executive level.”

Ronaldo: “Yes, that I felt betrayed.”

Morgan: “They’re trying to get rid of you?”

Ronaldo: “Honestly? I should not say that, I don’t know, but listen I don’t care, I’m always… people should know the truth. I felt betrayed and I felt that some people that don’t want me here, not only this year but last year, too.”

Ronaldo also reveals that he doesn’t have respect for his current coach, Ten Hag: “I don’t have respect for him because he doesn’t show respect for me. If you don’t have respect for me, I’m never gonna have respect for you.”

Ronaldo is now off to link up with the Portuguese national team for the World Cup, and at this stage it seems unlikely he will play another game for United.
