Manager Erik ten Hag has come under fire from former Manchester United captain Roy Keane for how he handled Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure.
By mutual consent, Ronaldo has left Old Trafford in the wake of his shocking interview with Piers Morgan.
The Portugal captain claimed in the TalkTV interview that he felt “betrayed” by United and that he has “no respect” for manager Erik ten Hag.
Before Germany’s World Cup match against Japan, Keane claimed Hag could have handled the situation better in an interview with ITV.
“I don’t think the management has been very good. Although I believe it has been a very challenging situation, I do not believe the manager has handled it well.
“People might say he’s laid down a marker; management includes taking care of the top. It is necessary to treat elite, international players differently. This notion that you should treat everyone equally is false, according to Keane.
