Roy Keane, a player who once captained Manchester United, has voiced his disapproval of the way in which manager Erik ten Hag handled Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure.
After his explosive interview with Piers Morgan, Ronaldo has voluntarily parted ways with Old Trafford, which was confirmed by the club.
The captain of Portugal said in the interview that he felt “betrayed” by United and that he had “no respect” for manager Erik ten Hag. The interview aired on TalkTV.
Keane argued to ITV before Germany’s World Cup game against Japan that Hag should have handled the situation better. The interview took place before Germany’s match against Japan.
“I don’t think it’s been great management. I think it’s been a very difficult situation but I don’t think the manager comes out with it [looking well].
“People might say he’s put a marker down, part of management is looking after the top. You do have to treat top, world-class players differently. This idea that you treat everyone the same, you don’t,” Keane said.
