Chelsea and Nigerian football legend Mikel Obi has slammed Cristiano Ronaldo for the statement he made during his interview with Morgan which led to Man United to terminating his contract. Manchester United recently announced the termination of Ronaldo’s contract whilst the former Real Madrid star is currently in Qatar with the Portugal national team for the World Cup.
While granting an interview with the 57-year-old British broadcaster, Ronaldo made it clear that he has no respect for current Man United manager Erik ten Hag.
Obi speaking on Dubaieyefm, he claimed that Ronaldo should not have granted the interview adding that many clubs might be turning their backs against him.
I’ve never been a Ronaldo fan really. For me, when a player has so much ego, I don’t really get it. He’s never been one of my favourite players and that’s why I always go for Messi really. ”It’s just a horrible scenario, he’s done so much for the club, and to see it end this way, it’s just horrible. On his part really, I would say that interview shouldn’t have been done.”
