Gary Neville: Ronaldo's contract be terminated
The club ought to invalidate Cristiano Ronaldo's Manchester United contract, according to former United captain Gary Neville. Ronaldo recently declared he does not respect United manager Erik ten Hag and that he is being ejected from Old Trafford in an explosive interview with TalkTV.
Since Ten Hag assumed management of United in May, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner has played just a supporting role. After declining to replace an injured player in a 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur last month, Ronaldo received a warning. But his most recent action went even further, accusing the club's owners, the Glazer family, of having "no care" about the team's athletic achievement.
"l don't think he wants a way back,. He wouldn't have done this interview if he wanted a way back. He knew it would bring the headlines it has and be the end of his Manchester United career." Neville told Sky Sports
After returning to United from Juventus in August 2021, Ronaldo has just over six months left on his contract. During his first campaign at Old Trafford, the Portuguese player won the Champions League and three Premier League championships. His welcome back has taken a bad turn. Despite Ronaldo's 24 goals in all competitions, United missed out on the Champions League after finishing sixth in the Premier League last season.
"I'm wondering what Man Utd are doing because the reality of it is they know they have to terminate Cristiano's contract or they basically open up a precedent so any player can criticise them in the future," added Neville.
