Cristiano Ronaldo claimed that the Glazer family, owners of Manchester United, did not care about the club.

The 37-year-old’s latest criticism of United, their owners, and anyone who criticizes him came from a social media interview with Piers Morgan on TalkTV, leading up to a full broadcast this week.

Ronaldo insists on not speaking to the Floridian family, who have owned the property since 2005, but claims to know their motives. “The Glazers don’t care about the club. So professional sport, as you know Manchester is a marketing club,” he said.

“They will take money from marketing – sports, I think they really don’t care. Fans are always right. I think the fans should know the truth, know that the players want the best for the club. I want the best for the club. That’s why I came to Manchester United.

“That’s why I love this club. But there are some things about the club that are not helping Manchester. [United] reach the highest level [Manchester] For example City, Liverpool and even now Arsenal. It’s tough, I think it’s going to be tough for Manchester [United] To be at the top of the game in the next two, three years.”

Portugal has also selected two former United teammates, Wayne Rooney and Gary Neville, after recent criticism from the duo.

“I don’t understand. You should ask him that question. [Rooney] “But I don’t know why you criticize me so much,” she said. “He completed his career here. [his] 30’s. So, I’m still playing at a high level. It’s hard to hear such criticism and negativity from people who play with you, for example, from Gary Neville.

“People are [their] their opinion but they really don’t know what’s going on. For example, inside the training ground and Carrington and even darling. They also have to listen to my point of view. Because it’s easy to criticize, but it’s easy if you don’t know the whole story. They’re not my friends.”

“Our focus is preparing for the second half of the season and continues to maintain the momentum, faith and unity that has been built between the players, manager, staff and fans.”
