Cristiano Ronaldo criticizes Erik ten Hag, Wayne Rooney says Man United lacks evolution since Alex Ferguson

Cristiano Ronaldo criticized Manchester United and Erik ten Hag during an explosive interview with Piers Morgan.

Ronaldo is having a disappointing season after being denied a summer exit by United after the Red Devils failed to qualify for the Champions League.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has come under intense criticism since the summer as he struggled to find a way to impress new boss Ten Hag, who has left Ronaldo on the bench for most of United’s season so far.

And now, he has given his opinion by speaking exclusively with Morgan.

According to The Sun, Ronaldo feels betrayed by his club during a very difficult part of his life.
He also criticized Ten Hag and former boss Ralf Rangnick. Of Rangnick he said: “If you’re not even a manager, how are you going to be the boss of Manchester United? I hadn’t even heard of him.
While he criticized Ten Hag for having no respect, Ronaldo added: “I don’t respect him because he doesn’t show respect for me. If you don’t respect me, I’ll never respect you.

“If you don’t respect me, I will never respect you.”
Ronaldo also referred to his former teammate Wayne Rooney and questioned why the Englishman always criticized him. He said, “I don’t know why he criticizes me so much. . . probably because he finished his career and I’m still playing at a high level.

“I’m not going to say I look better than him. Which is true. . . ”

Ronaldo also spoke about his decision to return to Old Trafford last summer, rejecting Manchester City.

He said: “I followed my heart. He (Sir Alex) said to me: ‘There’s no way you can come to Manchester City, and I said: ‘OK boss’.”

However, Ronaldo said that he soon realized that the club was no longer the same as when he first left.

Ronaldo continued: “Progress was zero. Since Sir Alex left, I haven’t seen any progress at the club. Nothing had changed.

“I think the fans should know the truth. I want the best for the club. That’s why I come to Manchester United.

“But you have some things inside that don’t help us get to the top level like City, Liverpool and even now Arsenal. . . In my opinion, a club of this size should be at the top of the tree and, unfortunately, they are not”.
