After a turbulent start to the season due to a possible departure from English Premier League club Manchester United, striker Cristiano Ronaldo has returned to the center of some major controversies in world football. This is because the Portuguese revealed his differences with coach Erik ten Hag in the Red Devils dressing room in an interview with English presenter Piers Morgan.

In the conversation, Ronaldo spoke of his imminent going to Manchester City and Arsenal, United’s rivals, and the lack of respect behind the scenes at the club. However, in addition to the controversies in England, the Portuguese forward also commented on his “rival” of nearly two decades in football: Lionel Messi.

“A great player. As a player, he’s charming, at the top. As a person, we’ve shared the stage for 16 years. I have a huge crush on him and a great relationship. I’m not his friend, but he’s like a teammate. I always respect the way he talks about me. He’s Argentinian, my girlfriend too.” He’s a great guy, he does everything for football. Probably the best I’ve seen,” he said.

After succumbing to the 30th man at Paris Saint-Germain, Cristiano commented on the possibility of playing together, something that had never happened during their football careers. “Anything is possible in football. Why not? I don’t know,” the striker said in an interview with TalkTV. Following the remarks, Manchester United began the process of terminating the contract with the number 7 shirt.
