The first part of Cristiano Ronaldo‘s interview with TalkTV was broadcast last night. The star spoke about his personal loss, and gripes with Manchester United.

You can read our ‘five things we learned’ summary, which includes Ronaldo praising the three United players he rates the highest.

The rest of the interview was far from complimentary towards United, with the club’s number seven slamming the club’s failure to compete for trophies.

United’s poor season led to Ronaldo missing out on Champions League football for the first time in his career.

Ronaldo interview reaction

Ronaldo was scathing about interim manager Ralf Rangnick, and also spoke about his less than enthusiastic start under Erik ten Hag. More critical comments of the Dutchman are expected to air tonight.

There were plenty of comments online, with Match Of The Day host Gary Lineker commenting that he expects Ronaldo to have played his final game for Manchester United, branding the interview as ‘extraordinary’.

Former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan felt he learned little, suggesting it was just Ronaldo’s personal grievances being aired. He also remarked that interviewer Piers Morgan could have contributed more challenging questions to the discussion.

Manchester United are reported to be assessing their options with regards to Ronaldo’s future, The Telegraph report.

Any decision will only be taken after the second part of the interview has been aired tonight.
