Manchester United To Take "appropriate Steps" After Ronaldo Interview

By Chimezie Nebolisah

Manchester United said the club have "initiated appropriate steps" following an interview by Cristiano Ronaldo that left his future at Old Trafford in doubt.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner said he did not respect the Red Devils manager Erik ten Hag and took jab at the club's owners, the Glazer family, during the 90-minute interview with Piers Morgan.

The club in a statement said: "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."

Former United captain Gary Neville said on Thursday that the club have no option but to rescind Ronaldo's contract, which runs until the end of the season.

Ronaldo is not due back in Manchester until after his fifth World Cup in Qatar with Portugal.
