Manchester United He’s entitled to air his grievance – Souness defends Ronaldo. Following Cristiano Ronaldo’s explosive conversation with British journalist Piers Morgan, the 37-year-old striker has been backed by Liverpool icon Graeme Souness.
Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, allegedly broke his pledge to Cristiano Ronaldo, according to Souness.
In a recent interview with Morgan, Ronaldo attacked both Man United and Ten Hag.
The former Real Madrid player said that Ten Hag and the Red Devils had deceived him.
Man United issued a statement on the development on Monday following his exclusive interview.
In response to the situation, Souness argued that Ronaldo had the right to voice his concerns.
When asked if he still stands up for Ronaldo, Souness responded, “I surely do,” as reported by Metro.
When I return to the situation, a meeting has taken place, two people have spoken, two people have left the room with an understanding, and someone has broken their word.
He has not talked at all. He believes that the moment has arrived for him to speak up and present his perspective. The best player to ever kick a ball, in the opinion of many, is this individual.
“I believe the manager has not maintained the story that was provided to him.
“Then you consider what transpired following this alleged agreement… Out of respect, he doesn’t engage him in battle with City.
“A few weeks later, when the game is won against Tottenham [Hotspur], he wants to insert him with two minutes remaining. What is there Ronaldo can do? Then he promotes him to captain.
“Considering it from both perspectives, I have been a manager and a player, and I believe the player has a grievance and is entitled to air it.”
