And in statements reported by Bein Sports, Louis Saha, a player from Manchester United between 2004 and 2008, criticized the current behavior of Cristiano Ronaldo. A former colleague of the Portuguese, the French estimated that the “CR7” could not be above the enterprise.
Manchester United are going through a very complicated start to the season. Erik ten Hag’s side, who came to the bench this summer, lost their first two Premier League games of the season, respectively against Brighton (2-1) and Brentford (4-0). At Old Trafford on Monday, the Red Devils will host Liverpool and they will undoubtedly need the great Cristiano Ronaldo, awash in rumors of his departure. Louis Saha spent at the club between 2004 and 2008 grabbing his shoulders with “CR7”, a heavyweight with his former teammate.
In recent days, Cristiano Ronaldo has promised his supporters that he will soon break out of silence to tell the truth. But the Portuguese striker does not hide the reality of his desires elsewhere, to leave a team that will not play in the Champions League this season.
“With all due respect, I think he did himself a disservice,” Saha said, in comments reported by The Associated Press. be in sports. He said he would speak soon and reveal things. I think he might have let things get a little worse. That’s a shame.”
“No one is greater than the club”
The former French striker continued, you must respect the situation at Manchester United. Because the coach is trying to build a team, and you’re saying you’re troubled, that you want to leave, at a time when the team is building. It’s really difficult. It’s pre-season, I don’t think Cristiano Ronaldo was right.”
However, the rebounding opportunities for Cristiano Ronaldo do not look plentiful. Many European teams were refusing to integrate the 37-year-old veteran into their workforce. So it is not impossible for Ronaldo to end up fulfilling the second year of his contract with Manchester United. Erik Ten Hag confirmed in any case that he wants to keep his star.
“If you think there is a possibility to keep the player happy and engaged because now we understand that maybe things will change in a few weeks, and that you end up with a player who can score goals as he did last year, why not, of course, we will be happier, as Louis Saha predicted, Retired since 2013. I’m a great player but at the same time, I’m a big fan of Manchester United and you always have to be a bigger supporter of the team. I always say no one is bigger than the club. And that’s it.”
