EPL: Ronaldo knew Man Utd would terminate his contract – Piers Morgan
TV host, Piers Morgan, has claimed Cristiano Ronaldo knew Manchester United would cancel his contract following their 90-minute interview.
Ronaldo’s deal was terminated after he criticized the Premier League club, the owners and manager Erik ten Hag.
Morgan has now said the 37-year-old is a “smart guy” and was aware the bombshell interview would end his career at Old Trafford.
Speaking with American TV channel FS1, Morgan insisted Ronaldo organised the interview.
“To be brutally honest, I think that he knew. Look, he’s a very smart guy, Cristiano, he knows what he’s doing.

“When he rang me he was like – ‘I want to do an interview, I want to say everything’. I said, ‘If you say everything I think you’re going to say, then you’re probably going to have to leave the club’.
“He went, ‘I know’. So he knew what he was getting into,” Morgan said.
Ronaldo, for the first time in his illustrious career, is now a free agent and is already being linked with a host of clubs in Europe, MLS and Middle East.
