Cristiano Ronaldo sent blunt James Milner message after his explosive Man Utd outburst

 

Glenn Murray has torn into Cristiano Ronaldo and pointed to the model behaviour of Liverpoolveteran James Milner to highlight the Manchester United outcast’s shortcomings.

Ronaldo has sent shockwaves through football this week courtesy of an explosive, unsanctioned interview with Piers Morgan, which saw him criticise boss Erik ten Hag, the Glazer family and several of his former United colleagues.

The 37-year-old’s comments have not gone down well with either his Manchester United teammates or the club hierarchy. His position at Old Trafford is now believed to be untenable – and Murray thinks that the Portuguese veteran could learn a thing or two from Milner, who celebrated his 600th Premier League appearance at the weekend.

“It makes Ronaldo look even worse leading into this story, doesn’t it?” Murray told BBC Radio 5 Live Sport while discussing Milner’s major milestone.

“600 appearances. Everything good you can say about James Milner. I was reading something about an evaluation when he was 12, so it was in 1998, and even then, it said ‘natural leader, sets good examples, a great attitude and very confident’.

“24 years later, you can actually say exactly the same about him. For me, we question Cristiano Ronaldoabout not evolving as you demise as a footballer, which is natural as a footballer. He, for me, has evolved through a massive change in football. Technically, tactically and physically.
