Cristiano Ronaldo is left without a club!

Right in the middle of the World Cup in Qatar, Manchester United decided to terminate the contract with the legendary Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of schedule! The reason for this was the scandalous interview of the Portuguese, in which he mercilessly criticized the club.

Cristiano Ronaldo returned to Manchester United in the summer of 2021, after nine successful seasons at Real Madrid and three less successful ones at Juventus. Here it is, a beautiful story, a return to the once native club after thirteen long years! At first, the 37-year-old forward shone on the football pitch and brought several important victories to the Red Devils, but in the end the club finished only sixth in the Premier League and did not qualify for the Champions League.

Despite all the sentimentality, last summer Ronaldo was actively looking for a new club to continue breaking records in the Champions League. However, everyone denied him - some could not handle the financial requirements of the Portuguese, and some thought that he did not fit into the concept of the club's development. As a result, CR7 remained at Old Trafford, but the head coach of the Mancunians, Erik ten Hag, no longer saw him in the first team. Allegedly, the Dutchman was building a new team around young people, and the 37-year-old veteran was noticeably inferior to them in playing qualities and motivation.

The football star did not like such a situation and began to openly criticize the coach. The apogee of his defiance was the refusal of Ronaldo to come on as a substitute for the last minutes of the match with Tottenham. And in mid-November already, the world saw a scandalous interview with the Portuguese, where he openly criticized all the processes taking place now at the red Manchester, publicly humiliated his previous managers (Solskjaer and Rangnick), and also exalted himself.

And so, the Red Devils ran out of patience, and they prematurely terminated the contract with the living legend of the club unilaterally. The club will not pay £16m compensation to the player and will essentially turn him into a free agent. And this is against the backdrop of the participation of CR7 at the World Cup in Qatar, where he plans to shine with the Portugal national team. Despite his reputation as a brawler, Cristiano is still able to find himself a new team, which he will do next winter.

It is unfortunate that the end of the glorious career of one of the best football players in history turns out to be so crumpled. Yes, Ronaldo said a lot of the right things, but at the same time he grossly violated corporate etiquette, and this is not forgiven in the modern world. Now there are many doubts about who will pick up the disgraced Portuguese and turn a blind eye to his difficult personality.
