How Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney has reacted to Cristiano Ronaldo’s criticism

During a 90-minute sit-down with Piers Morgan for TalkTV – which will air in full on Wednesday and Thursday – the Portuguese superstar accused United’s hierarchy of ‘betraying’ him and said he would ‘never respect’ manager Erik ten Hag.

Ronaldo also took aim at his many critics, singling out former team-mates Gary Neville and Rooney – even taking an unnecessary pop at the latter’s appearance.

According to Sky Sports, the DC United manager has no intention of entering into a public spat with Ronaldo and has decided not to make any public statements regarding the interview.

He simply feels Ronaldo needs to accept he is in the latter stages of his career and needs to adjust his role in the team accordingly, which means respecting the fact he will not play every minute of every match.

Rooney ‘feels no animosity towards Ronaldo’ despite the five-time Ballon d’Or winner deciding to make a jibe about his former team-mate’s appearance, as well as suggesting he was jealous of the longevity of his career.
