PIERS MORGAN has reacted to the news that Cristiano Ronaldo will be leaving Manchester United.
The Red Devils announced that the Portuguese star will leave the club with immediate effect after his damming interview with Morgan.
During the TalkTV interview, Ronaldo slammed the club for not progressing since he originally left the club for Real Madrid in 2009.
The 37-year-old also revealed that he did not respect manager Erik ten Hag.
Ronaldo's play time had been cut dramatically this season as the dutch manager changed the club's play style, despite him being the club's top scorer last season.
He also suggested the club did not believe him regarding his daughter's ill health over the summer.
