The Christian-United soap opera is over. The English club has announced, in the middle of the World Cup in Qatar, that Cristiano Ronaldo will leave the team mutual agreement and with immediate effect. The Portuguese attacker, currently concentrating on Portugalwill not return to Manchester United after the World Cup.
In the official statement, the club thanks him for his immense contribution in his second stage as ‘Red Devil’. Cristiano returned to his ‘home’ after leaving Juventus in Turin in the summer of 2021. This season, he has played 16 games with the Manchester United team, in which he has signed three goals and two assists.
Cristiano closes in very bad ways a long history of two acts in a club that he has defended on 346 occasions, in which he celebrated 145 goals and gave away another 64. The controversial interview of the Portuguese has blown everything up and has caused the departure of the Portuguese from Old Trafford.
Currently a free agent, Cristiano could debut in Qatar no team. Portugal will debut in this World Cup next Thursday, November 24 at 5:00 p.m. CET against Ghana.
United thought Cristiano could be a club man
Cristiano began his second stage as ‘Red Devil’ at a time when Manchester United was completely lost. Their goals and leadership ability they had to rescue the club that made him explode. And to a certain extent it was.
However, the rebuilding of a team of the stature of United could not depend solely on a 37-year-old (at the time, 36). Cristiano was not a resource, he was the resource. With the arrival of Have Haga, The club was looking for precisely that: to achieve a level project in which the Portuguese was not the protagonist of the plan.
The difference between the Portuguese and his teammates, in this first part of the season, It has not been as abysmal as in the past year. Little by little, United has stopped living off Cristiano and the former Real Madrid player has not understood it that way.
His ambition, one of his greatest qualities that has led him to rub shoulders with the best in history, has punished him this time. He has been a regular on the Old Trafford bench and feels he has been treated unfairly. Nothing is further from reality, He has starred in many unprofessional scenes (very unusual in him) and his departure from one of the clubs of his life, will be stained forever.
