Jesse Lingard reacts to Cristiano Ronaldo’s remarks about Manchester United

Jesse Lingard reacts to Cristiano Ronaldo’s remarks about Manchester United

Jesse Lingard, a former  Manchester United  star, believes that Cristiano Ronaldo “must be hurting” at Old Trafford due to his comments about the club.

Clips from Ronaldo’s interview with Piers Morgan have been shared over the past few days, and the full 90-minute conversation will air in two parts on TalkTV on Wednesday and Thursday at 8pm.

Lingard, a midfielder for Nottingham Forest, was asked about the controversial subject and described Ronaldo as “the greatest player in the world” while describing how football can be “crazy.”

Lingard left United when his contract expired in the summer after playing 232 times, scoring 17 goals, and winning the Europa League, FA Cup, and League Cup.

Talking to talkSPORT, the academy graduate explained how he had his grievances with the club during that period but ensured he “kept it behind closed doors”. He added that both parties left on “good terms”.

However, Lingard emphasized Ronaldo is the one who must deal with his current situation. The superstar leveled a number of accusations against United, claiming he felt “betrayed” and that he no longer respected manager Erik ten Hag.

Lingard refrained from delving deeply into the specifics of the incident, but implied Ronaldo’s outburst was a result of his discomfort at the club.

“It’s his [Ronaldo’s] situation,” the 29-year-old stated.

“I dealt with my own situation with the club. Also, we kept it behind closed doors but we still ended on good terms of course, so I support the club.

“But that’s his situation, I don’t know what’s been said or what’s happened between him and the manager – that’s not my place to say. I can’t really comment on something I don’t know too much on.

“It’s his situation and that’s how he’s dealing with it. Football’s crazy sometimes. Ronaldo is the greatest player in the world and he must be hurting but like I say I can’t comment on that situation at the moment.”
