Ronaldo wanted the interview – Piers Morgan

British broadcaster, Piers Morgan, has claimed Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo contacted him about doing the controversial interview, in which he claimed he felt “betrayed” by Manchester United.

According to Morgan, Ronaldo wanted the interview to focus on his damaged relationship with manager Erik ten Hag and the Premier League club.

He also revealed the 37-year-old wanted it to come out before the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

“Cristiano asked me to do it. Simple as that. I didn’t ask him, he asked me. He’s been thinking about this for a while.

“He feels he has to speak out, he knows it will be incendiary, will rattle some changes, but he also feels he should be doing this. He knows people will criticise him but he also knows what he is saying is true.

“Sometimes the truth hurts. He’s been thinking about this for a while and I got a call,” Morgan told talkSPORT.

Ronaldo’s current deal at Old Trafford runs out in June 2023.

Although United have the option of extending it for another year, it is widely expected the former Real Madrid and Juventus star has played his last game for the club.
