‘It’s a disaster’, a book tells the backstage of Ronaldo’s return
In a book to be published on Tuesday November 1 and written by two journalists from the Wall Street Journal, the scenes of Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United are described as a “disaster”.
If a thinning was seen Thursday in the Europa League against Sheriff Tiraspol (3-0) – match in which he was a scorer – the relationship between Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United remains very fragile. The episode of his non-entry into play against Tottenham and his early departure from Old Trafford is not so distant, even if the Portuguese has since been reinstated by his coach Erik ten Hag. But it’s a safe bet that the relationship between the club and its five-time Ballon d’Or could, in the coming days, become more complex again.
“It’s a disaster”, Ronaldo takes down Rangnick
In an English book to be published on Tuesday November 1, entitled in French “Messi vs Ronaldo: a rivalry, two geniuses, and the era that rebuilt the world game” and written by two journalists from the Wall Street Journal, some not very rosy remarks of CR7 towards his club are reported. In the interim of Ralf Rangnick , Ronaldo described United’s one-man situation as a “disaster” at a Fifa event in the UK, according to The Sun who was able to view the book.
United have “not evolved” since 2009 for CR7
The Portuguese is also said to have been frustrated with the lack of investment made at Carrington, the Red Devils’ training ground , with him saying the club have “not evolved” since leaving for Real Madrid in 2009. Not to mention the lack of commitment from his teammates to stay in peak physical condition, unlike him.
No doubt these revelations should rekindle the controversy around the 37-year-old, who has only started twice since the start of the Premier League season under ten Hag. The book also reports that a former United legend, Rio Ferdinand, called him at three in the morning to persuade him not to sign with rivals Manchester City when he was hesitating between the two clubs.
