What Cristiano Ronaldo said about the Glazers, Wayne Rooney and Gary Neville as new interview clips emerge

The latest videos from the explosive Piers Morgan interview show Manchester United’s No.7 criticising the club’s owners.

Cristiano Ronaldo has criticised Manchester United’s owners the Glazers in the latest video clips to emerge from his explosive interview with Piers Morgan.

In the first snippet of the interview, which was released on Sunday night, the striker claimed he felt ‘betrayed’ by the club and that he was being forced out of Old Trafford, while adding he had no respect for manager Erik ten Hag.

In response, United released a statement on Monday saying: “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.”

The full interview between Ronaldo and Morgan will be released across Wednesday and Thursday, but new clips were teased on Monday night in which Ronaldo took a swipe at the Glazers and his former team-mates Gary Neville and Wayne Rooney.

"Manchester are a marketing club - they get money from the marketing," said the Portugal international. "It will be hard for Manchester to be top of the game in the next two or three years."

"The owners of the club, the Glazers, they don’t care about the club, professional sport. The fans are always right,” he added. "They should know the truth. The players want the best for the club. I want the best for the club. This is why I came to Manchester United, this is why I love this club.

"You have some things inside the club which don’t help Manchester reach the top level like [Manchester] City, Liverpool and even now Arsenal. It’s complicated. It’s difficult. It’s hard."

Ronaldo has recently been criticised by Rooney and Neville, and he told Morgan the pair are not his ‘friends’. Asked why he felt Rooney had spoken out against Ronaldo, the latter responded: "Probably, because he finished his career in his 30s. So, I’m still playing at a high level. I’m not going to say that I’m looking better than him, which is true, but...

"It’s easy to criticise. I don’t know if you have a job in television that they must criticise to be more famous, I really don’t understand. I think they take advantage of [my profile] because they are not stupid. It’s hard when you see people who were in the dressing room with you criticising that way. They are not my friends.”
