Ex-Real Madrid president delivers ‘brutal’ verdict on Cristiano Ronaldo’s Manchester United exit

Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo “was never going to accept” his role at Manchester United under Erik ten Hag.

United confirmed that Ronaldo was to leave the club by mutual agreement with immediate effect in a statement on Tuesday evening. The news came in the wake of his interview with Piers Morgan, as the 37-year-old’s scathing criticism of his former side sent shockwaves through the footballing world.

United released a brief statement thanking Ronaldo for his service across both spells at the club, with the five-time Ballon d’Or winner also sharing a few words of his own in response.

Ronaldo said: “Following conversations with Manchester United we have mutually agreed to end our contract early. I love Manchester United and I love the fans, that will never ever change. However, it feels like the right time for me to seek a new challenge.

“I wish the team every success for the remainder of the season and for the future.”

The aftermath of the news will continue to dominate headlines for some time, as Calderon has now shared his views on the Portugal international’s departure from Old Trafford.

The former Los Blancos president told the Mirror: “Cristiano might be coming to the end of his glorious career, but he remains a wonderful player. It must have been so frustrating for him to not be in the team at Manchester United.
