Manager Erik ten Hag Speaks Publicly About Cristiano Ronaldo For The First Time Since He Left Manchester United

Dutch professional football coach and former player who is currently the manager of Manchester United Erik ten Hag has spoken publicly about former Man United player Cristiano Ronaldo for the first time since he left the club.

Manchester United recently announced that Ronaldo’s contract at the club had been terminated with immediate effect, with no comment from the manager Hag.

It was clear to see that Ronaldo wasn’t in ten Hag’s plans, with the Portuguese striker barely starting a Premier League game this season. Now, ten Hag has spoken out about Ronaldo for the first time since he left Manchester United.

“He’s gone and it’s the past. We are now looking forward and we’re looking to the future,” said ten Hag.

It was a short and sweet comment on Ronaldo – ten Hag doesn’t want the superstar to be a distraction anymore, part of the season why he’s now left the club.

No player is bigger than Manchester United, and the club now has to look forward. If they continue to worry or talk about Cristiano Ronaldo, then terminating his contract was pointless, as it will continue to be an unwanted distraction.

Losing Ronaldo off the wage bill will allow the club to continue to grow, hopefully bringing in a younger attacker to replace him with a long-term plan in mind.
