The first part of Ronaldo’s explosive chat with Morgan was broadcasted on Wednesday evening, with the Portugal international taking aim at his employers Manchester United, his ex-manager Ralf Rangnick and former team-mates Neville and Wayne Rooney.
Neville would have been bracing himself for Ronaldo’s comments but tried to play down the interview. Just 26 minutes before it started, he tweeted: “Tune in for a ‘world exclusive’ at 8pm tonight. Salford City v Peterborough in the FA Cupon ITV4, channel 120
Neville is the co-owner of League Two side Salford, with Paul Scholes and David Beckham among the club’s other shareholders. It turned out to be an unpleasant evening for the popular pundit, as Salford were hammered 3-0 by Peterborough on home soil.
It’s unclear if Neville watched Ronaldo’s interview with Morgan when it was broadcasted live on Wednesday evening due to his Salford commitments. He would’ve been aware of Ronaldo’s comments, however, as they were revealed earlier this week.
Ronaldo took aim at Neville after the pundit criticised his form this season. The 37-year-old has struggled for goals under Erik ten Hag, finding the net just three times in 16 games. Neville was also unimpressed by his refusal to play against Tottenham in October.
