Manchester United legend, Gary Neville, has been saddened by news of the club’s decision to begin the process of sacking forward, Cristiano Ronaldo.
Reports had earlier emerged that Man United are planning to sack Ronaldo from the club following his bombshell interview with Piers Morgan.
Man United’s lawyers believe Ronaldo’s actions during the interview are enough to consider it a breach of his contract, which is worth in excess of £500,000 a week and still has about seven months left to run.
Ronaldo is thought to be in breach of contract following his explosive interview with Piers Morgan earlier this week.
The 37-year-old lashed out at Man United, their manager Erik ten Hag, and the club’s youngsters, among other topics.
However, Neville, who was also criticized by Ronaldo, has been disheartened by what appears to be a bitter end to the love story between the Portugal captain and Man United.
Speaking on the development, Neville wrote on Twitter as Man United released a statement on Friday regarding Ronaldo’s interview with Morgan: “Sad that it’s come to a point where arguably United’s greatest ever talent is likely to be sacked.
“It didn’t need to be like this. A mature conversation a few weeks ago between “both parties” could have secured a smooth exit.”
