Ronaldo was recently asked by Morgan regarding his current situation at United. In an interview that will be televised in full on Wednesday and Thursday this week, the 37-year-old, who is no longer a first-team regular at United, fired several barbs at the club where he established his reputation.

He claimed he felt “betrayed” by United and that multiple people were attempting to force him out. He also stated that he had little regard for manager Erik ten Hag as a result of his club-imposed ban against Chelsea last month for refusing to play against Tottenham days before.

Ronaldo is nearing the end of his glittering career and is about to fly to Qatar with Portugal for what many believe would be his final World Cup. He earlier stated that he would like to play in Euro 2024 and that he believes he can play into his forties.

Morgan claimed on talkSPORT that Ronaldo has told him when he wants to hang up his boots. “He told me he intends to retire at 40,” Morgan added. “So he’s got two and a half years to finish, but most importantly, he wants to be appreciated and cherished, which he doesn’t feel under Ten Hag.” That is why he has said what he has, and why he believes this manager does not respect him.

“He (Ronaldo) has indicated from the beginning that he (Ten Hag) has gone out of his way to gain points with Ronaldo, and he feels it’s very easy for managers to do that because he’s the greatest name and biggest star, and he can frequently garner the headlines to divert from actual difficulties at the club.”

Morgan previously stated that Ronaldo approached him for the interview, which will be broadcast in its entirety on Talk TV on Wednesday and Thursday at 8 p.m. He admitted that the interview was conducted recently, but he refused to identify when.

“Cristiano requested me to do it, simple as that,” he explained. “Recently, he’s been thinking about it for a long, and it’s no secret that he’s been feeling a profound built-up frustration about what’s been going on at Manchester United.”

“I won’t reveal [when the interview took place].” [We’d] recently done it, but that’s between myself and Cristiano. He’d been thinking about it for a while, and then I received a call saying, ‘I want to do it now,’ and I believe part of the timing was because the World Cup was about to begin.”
