According to Mark Bosnich, CRISTIANO RONALDO should leave Manchester United after explosive Piers Morgan interview.
And the former Red Devils goalkeeper also called on Erik ten Hag to help resolve the situation for everyone involved.
In an exclusive interview with The World, Ronaldo said he felt betrayed by United and made to feel blamed for everything that went wrong at Old Trafford.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner also confirms that it was Sir Alex Ferguson who convinced him to persuade rivals Manchester City to join United.
But the 37-year-old thinks the club hasn’t progressed since the legendary boss retired nine years ago – then added in a bombastic claim that he’s out of respect for the current bully Erik ten Hag.
Now Bosnich thinks he’s better off outside the club after he burned his bridges with Ronaldo, who also scraped his former teammate Wayne Rooney.
“The best thing for both sides is to part ways,” the 50-year-old Australian said.
“Every story has two sides, so be aware of what’s going on under the table.
“From Ronaldo’s point of view, there are some things that need to be clarified.
“The Erik ten Hag must step in.

“Remove the Ronaldo status and he’s building something – they’re close to the top four.”
Manchester United chiefs will discuss with Ten Hag today their sit-down style and the penalty they will hand over Ronaldo, who will return to Carrington after the World Cup.
Bosnich added: “This has been inflammatory for a while.
“Ronaldo used “betrayal” to imply that the manager and others around the manager were insincere.
“There are certain lines that when you cross it, it is very difficult to turn back.
“At Top Ten Hag and the club’s court, they need to respond and clean up.
“We want to hear what they say in response.”
Ronaldo was expected to make a transfer debut in the summer, but remained at the club, where he left for Real Madrid in 2009.
However, after his dream comeback turned into a nightmare, Morgan identified Ten Hag’s appointment as the main reason for the dramatic turn of events he expects to result in a breakup in 2023.
Cristiano loves Manchester United, he loves the fans, but it’s a stagnant club and he can’t understand why he doesn’t want it and feels he needs to talk.
“Erik ten Hag decided to scold him, scold him, and humiliate him in front of everyone.
Cristiano realizes that what he says may mean he has to go.
“He’s a winner and wants to win big trophies.
“Do you put up with it, do you die a horrible silent death with Gary Neville and Wayne Rooney’s silence to him, or do you stand up and make a promise – the interview is brutally honest, there’s more to it than people think.
“Yes, Cristiano has a big ego and wants trophies.
“Ten Hag has decided to imitate him, drop him, push him away, and show no empathy behind the scenes.
“I don’t think it’s very likely that he will stay at Man United.”
