Patrick Kelechi – Erik ten Hag, Manchester United manager, has told the United board that he is prepared to let Cristiano Ronaldo leave Old Trafford.
After Ronaldo’s statements in an interview with Piers Morgan referenced the manager directly, the Norwegian has made it obvious that he does not want the disgruntled striker to play another match for the club.
Ronaldo reportedly told Morgan he had disagreements with other club executives and does not respect Ten Hag, as DAILY COURIER previously reported.
The Portuguese star said: “Manchester United tried to force me out. Not only the manager, but the other two or three guys who are around the club [at the senior executive level]. I felt betrayed. I don’t care, people should listen to the truth. Yes, I felt betrayed. I feel that some people didn’t want me here, not only this year but last season, too.”
In the aftermath of these comments coming to light, the club was reportedly furious and made it known to Chief Executive, Richard Arnold, that the matter be handled “as soon as possible”. The decision to let Ronaldo go is expected to be formalised soon and appears to be exactly as he wanted.
