Cristiano Ronaldo drops hint on Manchester United future and breaks silence on Erik ten Hag
Cristiano Ronaldo, one of Manchester United’s few bright spots during a dismal season, has spoken about his future plans.
Cristiano Ronaldo maintains he is still pleased at Manchester United and is excited to work with new boss Erik ten Hag.
Ronaldo, 37, scored 24 goals in his first season back at United after a 12-year absence and might win his fourth Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year title on Saturday.
Ronaldo’s future has been called into question after United failed to qualify for the Champions League, a competition in which he has competed for 19 consecutive seasons and won five times. Ronaldo is under contract with United until next year, with a one-year extension option.
However, in a video broadcast by United, Ronaldo expressed his satisfaction while emphasizing that Ten Hag needs time to perform the required adjustments to restore United’s credibility.
“I know he did a wonderful job with Ajax and that he’s an experienced coach,” Ronaldo added. “But we need to give him time and things need to alter the way he wants.”
“Of course, I hope we succeed because if you succeed, all of Manchester will succeed as well.” So I wish him the best of luck.
“Not only the players but also the fans, are delighted and excited.” I wish him the best of luck, and let’s hope for trophies next year.
“Of course, I was thrilled to be back in a club that really boosted my career, so it was fantastic, the mood when I came back, it was nice to see the supporters, their happiness was great.” I was and continue to be overjoyed to be here.
“And what I have to say to the fans is that even when you lose games, they always support us, they always are with us, the fans are always in my heart, and they are the people who we all should appreciate because they are always on our side.”
“The most important thing for me is to try to win games and win some championships or cups, but I believe Manchester will be where they belong.”
“As I already stated, it takes time, but I still believe.”
