The Portugal star said that head coach Erik ten Hag and others want him out of Old Trafford, in excerpts of a 90-minute interview with Piers Morgan Uncensored, which will be broadcast next week on TalkTV.

Ronaldo also admitted he has no respect for current United boss Erik Ten Hag
‘Yes, I felt betrayed and I felt like some people don’t want me here, not only this year but last year too.’
Ronaldo revealed he did not respect boss Ten Hag, admitting: ‘I don’t have respect for him because he doesn’t show respect for me. If you don’t have respect for me, I’m never gonna have respect for you.’

Ronaldo has endured a frustrating season that has seen him fall out of favour under Ten Hag
Ronaldo, who played under Ferguson for six years during his first spell at United before joining Real Madrid in 2009, said: ‘I don’t know what is going on, but since Sir Alex Ferguson left I saw no evolution in the club, the progress was zero.
‘For example, we have an interesting point that how the club as Manchester United after (they) sack Ole (Gunnar Solskjaer), they buy – they bring (in), sports director Ralf Rangnick, which is something that nobody understands.
‘This guy is not even a coach. A bigger club like Manchester United brings (a) sports director – surprised not only me but all the world, you know.
Ronaldo thinks United haven’t evolved at all since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013
‘Nothing changed. Surprisingly. Not only the pool, the jacuzzi, even the gym…Even some points, the technology, the kitchen, the chefs, which is, I appreciate, lovely persons.
‘They stopped in a time, which surprised me a lot. I thought I will see different things…different, as I mentioned before, technology, infrastructure.
‘But unfortunately, we see many things that I used to see when I was 20, 21, 23. So, it surprised me a lot.’
