Man Utd: Eriksen breaks silence on “sad” Ronaldo exit

The English giants terminated Ronaldo’s contract after an explosive interview last month.

Christian Eriksen has praised Cristiano Ronaldo’s “special” legacy at Manchester United.

Ronaldo completed a sensational return to Man Utd in August 2021. CR7 became the club’s top-scorer as he maintained his brilliant form last season.

However, Erik ten Hag’s arrival in the summer started his struggle for minutes at Old Trafford. Ronaldo hit out at the Dutchman for “not respecting” him in a fiery interview that ended his Man Utd career.

But Eriksen believes that won’t hurt the 37-year-old’s remarkable legacy at the club.

“First of all we are sad that Ronaldo is not part of it. His legacy and his name at any club is special, for me to be fortunate to play with him in my career was very nice,” Eriksen said.

Ronaldo was subjected to a ‘political ban’ at World Cup, says Turkish President

The Portugal captain didn’t make the starting line-up in the team’s two knockout games for ‘political reasons’.

Cristiano Ronaldo was subjected to a ‘political ban’ at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, according to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Despite picking Ronaldo in the line-up for all three Group H games, Fernando Santos benched the five-time Ballon d’Or winner for the knockout stages. The then-Portugal manager elected Goncalo Ramos as his starting striker instead.

Portugal reached the quarter-finals, but crashed out of the World Cup in a shock 1-0 defeat to Morocco.

“They have wasted Ronaldo. Unfortunately, they have imposed a political ban on him,” Erdogan said at a youth event in the eastern Erzurum province on Sunday as quoted on AA.

“Sending a footballer like Ronaldo to the pitch with just 30 minutes remaining to the match ruined his psychology and took away his energy.”

“Ronaldo is someone who

The Portuguese superstar has been a free agent since parting ways with Man Utd last month.

Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr are waiting for Cristiano Ronaldo’s response to their transfer offer.

Widespread reports in English media claim Ronaldo hopes to continue his career in a Champions League club. However, as of now, there hasn’t been concrete interest from any European side.

Ronaldo’s high salary demands are the main reason why most non-elite sides are unable to hire him. But as a Saudi Pro club, Al Nassr’s financial resources might allow them to pull off a massive transfer for CR7.

What’s Al Nassr’s plan for Ronaldo?

Al Nassr are reportedly keen to sign Ronaldo on a three-year contract. However, they are also interested in keeping the Portugal international beyond his initial contract by offering him a role in the club’s hierarchy.

Al Nassr hope to work with Ronaldo until 2030 as

Ronaldo reported to sign eyewatering Al-Nassr deal

It has been quite an eventful 2022/23 campaign so far for Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo.

Having failed to secure a move away from Manchester United over the summer after his dream return to Old Trafford began to turn sour, there were a number of flare ups this season that had fans of the Red Devil’s concerned.

Issues over pre-season attendance, Ronaldo was clearly frustrated even when he played given his demeanour in heading straight down the tunnel at the end of games, and even his refusal to come on as a substitute in the game against Tottenham Hotspur was not the final straw, as he was subsequently handed the arm band in an effort to rebuild some bridges but that was always going to be akin to rolling the roulette wheel at
