When the first snippets of Cristiano Ronaldo’s interview with Piers Morgan surfaced on social media, many people were quick to suggest that his Manchester United career was now, ultimately, finished. It remains to be seen how exactly the Reds will respond to the controversial claims made by the Portuguese attacker, but the club will certainly react, sooner rather than later.
Ronaldo has come under intense criticism for his comments about his manager Erik ten Hag, former teammates and overall treatment at Old Trafford, with a number of former players and pundits – several of whom played with the 37-year-old – coming out in defence of the club’s handling of the situation.
However, there is yet to be a response from any of Ronaldo’s club teammates, which is understandable given that a number of them are on international duty, and will probably be waiting on instructions about how to respond if and when questioned on the topic.
Despite this, United’s players have previously spoken about the need to follow the instructions set out by Ten Hag – and the consequences of not doing so – with the Dutchman implementing a number of rules that need to be followed. Before the start of the campaign, Bruno Fernandes discussed the impact of the manager since his arrival at the club, insisting that the team would be successful if they stuck by him.
Speaking in August, during United’s pre-season campaign, Fernandes insisted that players must follow Ten Hag’s instructions and rules, otherwise they risked being ‘punished’ and kicked out of the team.
