Wayne rooney reply to Ronaldo
Former Manchester United player Wayne Rooney has finally responded to Cristiano Ronaldo’s dig at him in the Pierrs Morgan interview. Rooney has claimed that Ronaldo is not dealing very well with the fact that he is not young anymore.
Cristiano Ronaldo is not dealing well with the fact that he is 37, former Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney has said. Rooney reacted to the comments made about him by his former teammate Ronaldo, who said that Rooney was jealous.
Speaking to British journalist Piers Morgan, Ronaldo made a series of accusations on the club and the manager and called out several former players who had criticised him in recent times over his form and attitude.
Wayne Rooney, who currently coaches in the United States of America had been critical of Ronaldo over his tantrums in and around the pitch.
The Portuguese superstar took Rooney up on his comments and said that he did not why Rooney was jealous.
Ronaldo along with Piers Morgan, mocked Rooney over his age – 37 – and joked that Rooney was jealous of Ronaldo because they did not look the same despite being of the same age.
The duo of Ronaldo and Morgan chuckled amongst each other about the fact that Rooney had retired from international football and Ronaldo was still playing in one of the top leagues in the world.
Reacting to the same, Rooney told CNN that Ronaldo was not taking well to the fact that he was 37 and not the centre figure at Manchester United.
“He’s a fantastic player. Him and Messi are probably the two best players to play the game. It’s not criticism, what I’ve said is age comes to all of us, Cristiano is finding it hard to deal with that,” Wayne Rooney said.
Manchester United have taken the first steps towards kicking Cristiano Ronaldo out of the club over his bombshell interview with Piers Morgan.
It’s understood United have begun the legal process of effectively sacking Ronaldo by tearing up his £500,000-a-week contract without paying the Portugal star a penny of the £16million he would have earned until it expired in June.
United’s lawyers are satisfied Ronaldo has breached the terms of his contract with his explosive allegations against the club, the Glazers, manager Erik ten Hag and his teammates.
The interview aired in two parts on Wednesday and Thursday following a slew of teaser clips since the weekend.
United said earlier in the week that they would consider their response once the full facts were established, and issued a statement on Friday.
It read: ‘Manchester United has this morning initiated appropriate steps in response to Cristiano Ronaldo’s recent media interview. We will not be making further comment until this process reaches its conclusion.’
United felt they had to offer a token response in the face of Ronaldo’s claims but would not comment on what the process will involve.
Sportsmail understands it relates to initiating legal action to cancel his contract with United loath to pay Ronaldo any compensation because it would be seen as rewarding disloyalty.
