“I don’t” – Cristiano Ronaldo admits he has ‘no respect’ for Manchester United’s Erik ten Hag

“I don’t” – Cristiano Ronaldo admits he has ‘no respect’ for Manchester United’s Erik ten Hag

Cristiano Ronaldo, a star with  Manchester United, admits he has “no regard” for Erik ten Hag.

Cristiano Ronaldo stated in a Piers Morgan Uncensored interview (via The Sun) (h/t Manchester Evening News) that he has ‘no regard’ for Red Devils manager Erik ten Hag because the Dutch coach does not respect him.

The 37-year-old legend gave a bizarre interview in which he blasted Manchester United’s Erik ten Hag for the way he has been treated this season. Ronaldo has been relegated to a supporting position this season, which he does not appear to enjoy.

It has appeared for quite some time that Ronaldo and Ten Hag don’t see eye-to-eye, but Ronaldo’s admission demonstrates just how strained their relationship is.

Ronaldo does not share Ten Hag’s perspective on this matter, despite Ten Hag’s efforts to dispel these rumors and maintain his confidence in the 37-year-old player.

Ronaldo has missed Man United’s last two games owing to an unexplained sickness. Last Sunday, the Portuguese forward captained Manchester United against Aston Villa, and just as everything appeared to be turning around, this interview fell like a bombshell.

Ronaldo appeared to imply that Ten Hag had little respect for him and that he also lacked regard for the former Ajax manager.

“I don’t have respect for him [Ten Hag] because he doesn’t show respect for me. If you don’t have respect for me, I’m never gonna have respect for you,” said Ronaldo

Ronaldo’s decision to have such an interview right before the World Cup seems puzzling. It will be a major distraction before such a crucial competition, and honestly, a man of his expertise could have avoided it.

It is also not very pleasant for a player to discuss the management of a club he is still a member of, regardless of how offended he may be. It causes turbulence in the locker room, which can influence performance on the field.
