Manchester United Terminates Ronaldo’s Contract

On Thursday night, an interview between Cristiano Ronaldo and Piers Morgan aired on TalkTV. The interview was a chance for Ronaldo to speak about his challenging year, both professionally and personally. The interview included him saying he didn’t respect Manchester United’s head coach Erick ten Hag, felt betrayed by Manchester United, and that the club had handled his daughter’s illness poorly. 

ESPN and SkySports have reported that in response to his remarks, Manchester United is seeking legal representation to terminate Ronaldo’s contract almost a year early. The club has announced that “this morning [they] initiated appropriate steps in response to Cristiano Ronaldo’s recent media interview. We will not be making further comments until this process reaches its conclusion.”

In an interview with Sky Sports, the former Manchester United player, Gary Neville, explained that after Ronaldo’s explosive interview, Manchester United had no option other than to terminate Ronaldo’s contract early. He further explained that Ronaldo “wouldn’t have done this interview if he wanted a way back. He knew it would bring the headlines it has and be the end of his Manchester United career. 

I’m wondering what Manchester United are doing because the reality of it is they know they have to terminate Cristiano’s contract, or they basically open up a precedent so any player can criticize them in the future. I agree with some of the things Cristiano has said, and many Manchester United fans will agree with many things Cristiano has said, but the reality is if you’re an employee within a business and say those things, your employment has to terminate, and Manchester United have to do that in the next few days.”

Manchester United’s head coach Ten Hag said he did not want Ronaldo returning to the team after the World Cup. The feeling is mutual. When Morgan asked Ronaldo about his future career, Ronaldo said that he is focused on preparing for the upcoming World Cup, which he says will be his last one.
