Roy Keane blames Erik ten Hag for Cristiano Ronaldo exit

Manchester United legend Roy Keane has actually declared that Erik 10 Hag’s management is mostly to blame for Cristiano Ronaldo leaving the club.

Ronaldo has actually now left United by shared authorization after being extremely vital of the club and the supervisor in an interview with Piers Morgan on TalkTV.

The departure was eventually not a surprise, with Ronaldo having actually asked to leave throughout the summertime and apparently not an essential part of Ten Hag’s strategies.

Things boiled over versus Tottenham when the forward declined to come off the bench in the closing phases of the video game and after that strolled down the Old Trafford tunnel prior to it had actually completed.

While Keane, who has actually protected Ronaldo throughout the legend, recommends his previous colleague leaving the club is best for all celebrations, he does not think that Ten Hag managed the scenario well.

“I don’t think it’s been great management,” the ex-skipper stated on ITV. “I think it’s been a very difficult situation but I don’t think the manager comes out of it [looking good].

“People may state he’s put a marker down – part of management is taking care of the top [players]. You do need to deal with leading, first-rate gamers in a different way. This concept that you deal with everybody the very same, you do not.

“I think it’s better for everybody. The club, obviously, don’t want that dragging into the second half of the season, Ronaldo’s obviously ran out of patience. People say ‘is his reputation tarnished at Manchester United?’ Far from it.”

As 90min exposed at the time, Ten Hag was all set to sanction Ronaldo’s exit in the summertime and Keane confessed that would most likely have actually been a much better time to call it gives up.

“He should have probably left in the summer, but whether that’s the player’s fault or the club’s, it was never going to happen,” he included.

“The new manager was never going to play him, you cannot have Ronaldo as a suit or fringe player. It’s just not right. It’s sad but these things happen.”
