Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo has hit out at the Glazer family for their lack of involvement at the club over the years.
The Glazers have been the subject of immense criticism from many United fans and there have been frequent calls to sell the club.
However, that seems unlikely to happen anytime soon and Ronaldo has now said that the Glazers don’t care what happens at United.
Speaking exclusively with Piers Morgan via The Sun, the 37-year-old said:
“The owners of the club they, listen they don’t. The Glazers, they don’t — they don’t care about, about the club. I mean, professional sport.”
“As you know this, Manchester is a marketing club. They will get its money from the marketing, the sport, it’s. They don’t really care, in my opinion.”
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner added that he has never spoken to the Glazers since his arrival and all the authority is given to the president as well as sporting director.
The Portugal international also emphasised that the players want the best for the club and said that the supporters should continue protesting against the ownership.
He added: “Do you ever talk to them, the Glazers?. Never. No. They give all the power to the president, sport director. The fans, they’re always right.”
“I think the fans should know the truth — should now that the players. We want the best for the club. I want the best of the club. This is why I am coming to Manchester United. This is why I love this club.”
Ronaldo venting out his frustration ahead of January exit
Earlier on Sunday, Ronaldo said that the club had betrayed him over the summer after refusing to believe that his three-month old daughter was ill during pre-season.
The forward went on to say that he has no respect for manager Erik ten Hag and also slammed Wayne Rooney for the recent comments on his future at United.
It is quite clear that Ronaldo has made his mind up to leave United in January and there are no surprises that he has now slammed the Glazers’ handling of the club.
Ronaldo is right with his opinion on the ownership, but the nature of his outburst on Ten Hag prior to that is unlikely to go well with most of the club’s faithful.
United are yet to decide on the course of action, but there is a high possibility that his contract could be terminated before the transfer window reopens in January.
