The journalist responsible for the interview that led to the breach of contract between Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United, Piers Morgan, continues to maintain that Erik ten Hag was wrong to decide that he did not need the contribution of the Portuguese international. Asked about UK talkSPORT radio on Tuesday, the Briton and famous Arsenal fan said that at the end of this season, the Red Devils manager will have no choice but to admit he has regrets.
“When we win the title and Manchester United don’t, because they got rid of the GOAT, I hope Erik ten Hag gets down on his knees and asks Cristiano Ronaldo to forgive him for the shocking thing he showed her,” he replied.
“They beat some teams, and they had a good result against Manchester City.” Let’s not draw any conclusions yet. I think we’re going to tear them down completely on Sunday, and then I’ll remind them that the manager fired the best player in history.
“They thought it was a great idea. The other question I will ask myself is whether any of the members of this brilliant new Manchester United team will score as many goals this season as Ronaldo did last season.
