Cristiano Ronaldo’s Manchester United legacy hangs

In his second spell with Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo’s legacy with the club hangs in the balance. Less than a year and a half into what was supposed to be a heroic return to Old Trafford, it seems like there may not be a way back for Ronaldo after part one of his interview with Piers Morgan on TalkTV. There were snippets of the interview released on Sunday where Ronaldo stated that he doesn’t respect Erik ten Hag, already causing Manchester United to release a statement before the interview aired.

The statement was terse, “The club will consider its response after the full facts have been established. Our focus remains on preparing for the second half of the season and continuing the momentum, belief, and togetherness being built among the players, manager, staff, and fans.”

After hearing the interview, the team has released another statement “Manchester United has this morning initiated appropriate steps in response to Cristiano Ronaldo’s recent media interview. We will not be making further comment until this process reaches its conclusion.”

CBS Sports understands that Manchester United are exploring options for terminating his contract and are talking with lawyers over legal action…
