After his explosive interview with Piers Morgan went viral on the internet at the beginning of November, Ronaldo has been the subject of much press coverage in recent weeks. The Portuguese player harshly criticised Manchester United in the interview, stating the team had not developed since Sir Alex Ferguson left in 2013. He also said he had little regard for manager Erik ten Hag since the latter had no respect for him.

On November 22, the 37-year-contract old’s with Manchester United was mutually ended after the club acknowledged the Portuguese star for his service over the course of the two stints, during which he scored 145 goals in 346 games. Following an April incident in which Ronaldo broke a fan’s phone at Goodison Park after Man United lost to Everton last season, Ronaldo’s drama intensified when he was hit with a £50,000 fine and a two-match suspension by the English football association. Now, Ronaldo is rumoured to have signed a remarkable two-and-a-half-year contract with Al-Nassr, one of the most successful teams in Saudi Arabia. They have won the nation’s premier division nine times, with their most recent victory coming in 2019.
