Unless you’ve been absent from social media and also not seen a television screen since last Sunday evening, you’ll know all about Cristiano Ronaldo‘s bombshell interview.
After Manchester United‘s 2-1 victory away at Fulham – which was secured by an injury-time goal from Alejandro Garnacho – Piers Morgan revealed that an in-depth chat with the Portuguese superstar would soon air.
And at around 10pm UK time, less than four hours after the Red Devils’ win, a few snippets of Ronaldo’s ‘explosive’ interview with Morgan were leaked.
One part that’s so far been released which has really annoyed United fans is Ronaldo’s criticism of club legend, Wayne Rooney.
The former Real Madrid and Juventus man said to Morgan: “I don’t know why he [Rooney] criticises me so badly… probably because he finished his career and I’m still playing at high level. I’m not going to say that I’m looking better than him. Which is true…”
Both brutal and unnecessary.
What makes it all the more weird is the fact that Rooney hasn’t really been that outspoken with regards to Ronaldo’s struggles in 2022/3 at United.
England’s record goalscorer was critical about his former teammate refusing to come on as a sub against Tottenham Hotspur, but that’s fair game, right?
