Manchester United have removed a mural containing Cristiano Ronaldo from outside Old Trafford days after his controversial interview where he claimed the club treats him like a black sheep and revealed he felt betrayed.
In the interview, where Ronaldo declared he does not respect United boss Erik ten Hag, he also slammed the club owners – Glazers family for the lack of progress made since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure in 2013.
In response United chiefs met to discuss Ronaldo’s future with reports claiming he could be sold off in January.
Alongside Ronaldo, the club also removed a mural of Bryan Robson and David Beckham from the outside of the stadium.
On a personal level, Ronaldo’s comments have already sparked a backlash with United team-mate Bruno Fernandes who subbed the footballer at Portugal’s World Cup training camp.
Joao Cancelo also looked upset with Ronaldo during a bizarre training encounter earlier in the week.
Ronaldo also revealed he is upset with former Red Devils team-mate Gary Neville and accused the Sky Sports pundit of using his name for fame.
Neville responded in good humour to the outburst by tweeting: “Anyone for dinner?”
He also shared a funny photo which highlighted his confusion at Ronaldo’s remarks.
