Ten Hag Reason For Ronaldo’s Man United Exit – Figo

By Chimezie Nebolisa

Portuguese legend and ex-international Luis Figo has said that Manchester United manager, Erik Ten Hag’s decision not to use Cristiano Ronaldo in games contributed to his action to leave the club.

Ronaldo left the club recently on mutual agreement after his explosive interview with Piers Morgan.

However, in a media chat, Figo stated that both parties are happy with their decision.

Figo said: “After all the situations that came, I think it was the decision of both. A mutual agreement, I think, is beneficial for both. For himself because he was not playing and for the club that feels that the player doesn’t want to stay. He’s of course, a special player, an important player, but at the same time, he was not playing, not being an option for the coach.

“He was complaining about the club and the club decided with a mutual agreement to separate the destiny of both. Well, it’s like that – mutual agreement, everyone’s happy,” the Year 2000 balon d’or winner added.
