‘You cannot have Ronaldo as a fringe player, it is just not right’ – Man United legend slams Ten Hag for his treatment of Ronaldo

Manchester United legend Roy Keane insists Cristiano Ronaldo should have left Manchester United in the summer – and claims Erik ten Hag should have handled the situation differently.

“It has been on cards for the last few months. The interview was the tipping point. It is like a divorce the end of a relationship,” Keane told ITV.

“He should have left in the summer, the new manager was never going to play him. You cannot have Ronaldo as a fringe player, it is just not right.”

“The Dutch are straight talkers. Good thing for the club, him and the fans,” Keane added. “Once the World Cup is finished they are back in the league and want to hit the ground running

“You do have to the treat the top players differently. I don’t want to go down the road again about pressing, Ronaldo did not come back to the club to do that, he came back to score goals.

“Let him go in the summer before it gets really messy. Ronaldo has run out of patience there. I think it is really straightforward, people say is his reputation at United tarnished. Far from it. United fans aren’t daft.

“Ronaldo will go down as one of the greatest players. It has not ended well, but that’s life. I think he will be delighted to be among the Portuguese squad and show its qualities.”
