EPL: Man Utd teammates let Ronaldo down, they didn’t want to work hard – Piers Morgan


British broadcaster, Piers Morgan, on Tuesday doubled down on his claim that Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo was not the problem at Manchester United during his second spell at Old Trafford.

Morgan referred to a recent interview given by former Manchester United coach Mike Phelan, where the latter said that Ronaldo’s high standards had created a problem inside the club’s dressing room.

In an interview with Sky Sports (as reported via Mail Sport), Phelan said that Ronaldo’s high standards created a problem among the Red Devils’ teammates.

However, Morgan responded to the Mail Sport tweet containing Phelan’s interview with the following message on his social media platform, X: “Fascinating interview … Phelan confirming what @Cristiano told me – he wasn’t the problem at United. It was the players who didn’t want to work as hard as him who were the problem.”

Ronaldo’s contract with Man United was terminated by mutual consent last year.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has since joined Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr as a free agent
