Piers Morgan has defended Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo following his recent interview, claiming the 37-year-old was “only doing” what Gary Neville and fellow club legends had told him to do.
Ronaldo’s accusations have dominated the headlines since his interview with Morgan was announced on Sunday night. Only a matter of hours had passed since Alejandro Garnacho’s 93rd-minute winning goal against Fulham when the five-time Ballon d’Or winner started to dominate the headlines.
The former Real Madrid man has criticised numerous aspects of the club, including some of his former teammates. The Portugal international claimed that both Wayne Rooney and Neville were only using his name to become “more famous”.
Ronaldo told Morgan during his interview on TalkTV: “It’s hard to listen [to] that kind of criticism and negative about people who play with you, for example, Gary Neville, as well. I think they take advantage of that because they are not stupid.
“I’m the number one followed guy in the world. It’s not by coincidence. To listen as ex-colleagues or teammates criticise you, when they only see one point of view.
