Ronaldo began the season on the fringes of the Manchester United squad after spending the summer trying to leave Old Trafford in order to protect his Champions League record from Lionel Messi.
He was then slowly integrated back into the squad before refusing to come on vs Tottenham and leaving the ground early.
This led to Ronaldo being forced to train with the under-21s, but he was again welcomed back into the hold by Ten Hag.
Despite this, in his interview on Sunday, Ronaldo stated that he felt betrayed by Manchester United:
“Yes [I’m being forced out]. Not only the coach, but another two of three guys around. I felt betrayed,” he said.
“People should listen to the truth. Yes, I feel betrayed and I felt that some people didn’t want me here, not just this year, but last year too.”
On Erik ten Hag, he added: “I don’t have respect for him because he doesn’t show respect for me.”
“If you don’t have respect for me, I will never have any for you.”
Now, the reaction to CR7′s interview has been revealed:
According to Sky Sports, the Man United squad and Ten Hag only found out about the explosive interview following their last-gasp win over Fulham.
They learnt 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.
Erik ten Hag and the Manchester United dressing room are also said to be extremely disappointed with Cristiano Ronaldo’s attack on the club.
