USA's Ronaldo defends himself after allegations of misconduct

Ronaldo is leaving Manchester United by mutual consent

DOHA, Qatar – Cristiano Ronaldo will leave Manchester United “immediately”, the Premier League club said on Tuesday.

The termination of the 37-year-old forward’s contract comes after he gave an explosive interview in which he criticized manager Erik ten Hague and the club’s owners.

It is not immediately clear where he will end up after failing to secure a move to the Champions League club in the summer.

“After discussions with Manchester United we have mutually agreed to terminate our contract early,” Ronaldo said. “I love Manchester United and I love the fans, that will never change. However, it feels like the right time for me to look for a new challenge.

“I wish the team the best of luck for the rest of the season and the future.”

Ronaldo, who is currently in Qatar with Portugal as he looks to win his country’s first World Cup title, has previously revealed he wants a transfer after being cut to a member of the squad this season. .

On Tuesday, he got his wish with the United States confirming his exit.

“Cristiano Ronaldo will leave Manchester United by mutual consent, effective immediately,” it said in a statement. “The club would like to thank him for his extensive contributions over two spells at Old Trafford, scoring 145 goals in 346 appearances, and wish him and his family well for the future.”

The statement did not express United’s dismay after Ronaldo’s unauthorized interview with Piers Morgan.

The Portugal captain said he felt “betrayed” during the 90-minute speech in which he also criticized the young players.

United said last week that it had initiated appropriate measures in response to his comments, with the contract being widely expected to be cancelled.
