Manchester United announced hours ago they were parting ways with Cristiano Ronaldo on a mutual agreement. Cristiano Ronaldo days ago honoured an interview with English journalist Piers Morgan, which he revealed some pressing issues bordering him since his second signing to the club.
Ronaldo told Piers he was not respected by the club and some very key people wanted him to leave the club. He also that since he left the club years ago and came back, nothing had changed. And they never cared for him when his lovely daughter was ill. This and many other things he said.
There were earlier reports Cristiano Ronaldo was not happy at the club and wanted to leave last season. He revealed in the interview a few clubs were interested in him as opposed to what the media reported. Several media houses reported that top clubs were rejecting the legend last season.
