With so much drama, twists and turns, Cristiano Ronaldo has released an official statement on his social media platform today, Thursday, October 20, 2022, regarding the ongoing saga involving him, Manchester United and Erik Ten Hag.
Manchester United released a statement indicating that the Portuguese international would not be joining the team for the premier league fixture against Chelsea scheduled for Saturday, October 22, 2022.
The legend confirmed that he would continue to work hard and support the team as he has always done; the Portuguese captain then goes on to explain that he is human and could get carried away with his emotions.
As I’ve always done throughout my career, I try to live and play respectfully towards my colleagues, my adversaries and my coaches. That hasn’t changed. I haven’t changed. I’m the same person and the same professional that I’ve been for the last 20 years playing elite football, and respect has always played a very important role in my decision making process.
I started very young, the older and most experienced players examples were always very important to me. Therefore, later on, I’ve always tried to set the example myself for the youngsters that grew in all the teams that I’ve represented. Unfortunately that’s not always possible and sometimes the heat of the moment get’s the best of us.
Right now, I just feel that I have to keep working hard in Carrington, support my teammates and be ready for everything in any given game. Giving in to the pressure is not an option. It never was. This is Manchester United, and united we must stand. Soon we’ll be together again.
