Former player Gary Neville has admitted that the Red Devils need to terminate Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract at the club following his revelations in an interview.
What did Neville say about Cristiano Ronaldo?
The ex-Red Devils player insisted that Cristiano’s time at Old Trafford was over after his explosive interview with Morgan, saying the club had no choice but to terminate his contract. The two men once played together in Man Utd, but this isn’t the first time Gary has aired his thoughts on his former teammate’s behavior this season, and he can’t see any way back for him after his controversial comments.
The former Manchester United defender said no, he doesn’t think Cristiano Ronaldo wants a way back. According to Gary Neville, Cristiano would not give interviews if he wanted to return. Neville thinks this interview, to be honest, was the one he knew would lead to the headlines he has and lead to the end of his career with the Red Devils. At this point in time, he wonders what Man Utd is doing because the reality is that they know they have to terminate Ronaldo’s contract, or they basically set a precedent that any player can come in and criticize the club in the future.
Gary says Ronaldo probably wants it too, but it didn’t have to end like that. The Portuguese could have converged a few weeks ago and traversed a smooth path across potentially stiff seas to shore, but that didn’t happen. According to Neville, he agrees with some of Cristiano’s words, but believes that the reality is that if they are in business and they say these things, then their work should be stopped, and there is no doubt that the Red Devils should do it in next few days.
A little about the topic
The club acknowledged the shocking interview with the Portuguese as a statement, but it is not clear what will happen next and whether they will decide to cut ties entirely with Cristiano Ronaldo. With Cristiano clearly willing to leave Old Trafford, the club may have to wait until the January transfer window to find a solution for all parties.
