Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo’s explosive TV interview with Piers Morgan seems certain to end his career at the EPL club.
It is hard to see a way back for the 37-year-old forward, who said he does not respect manager Erik ten Hag and feels “betrayed’ by the club.
“I feel betrayed.”
EXCLUSIVE: Cristiano Ronaldo tells Piers Morgan he feels like he’s being forced out of Manchester United in an explosive interview.

The question now is whether Ronaldo can secure a transfer in January after failing to leave for a Champions League club before the start of the season.
Life without Ron
United was already planning for life without him before excerpts from his interview began circulating on Sunday night — but that process is likely to be expedited up after his latest public show of dissent.
Ten Hag already had to censure him for leaving a pre-season friendly early — and cut him from his squad last month when he refused to come on as a substitute against Tottenham.
Ronaldo displayed an element of contrition on social media later and held clear-the-air talks with Ten Hag before being welcomed back into the fold.
But these fresh comments threaten to be a final strike in terms of the Portugal World Cup forward’s relationship with his manager.
