Cristiano Ronaldo is on the lookout for a new club after his contract at Manchester United was terminated following his explosive interview with Piers Morgan’s show, ‘Piers Morgan Uncensored’.
This interview made the 37-year-old’s position at Old Trafford untenable, due to his scathing verdicts of United’s owners, board, manager and legendary players such as Gary Neville and Wayne Rooney.
Many feel that it was a great shame for such a legendary figure of the club to leave in this fashion, as the 37-year-old has inspired the club to their last Champions League crown in 2007/08, while also winning eight other major honours in his first spell at Old Trafford before making a return at the start of last season.
In total, Ronaldo managed 27 goals in 54 matches during his recent spell with the Red Devils, on top of 118 goals in 292 appearances between 2003 and 2009. The Portuguese forward is also one of four United players to have won the Ballon d’Or while at the club, doing so in 2008, putting his name alongside legendary figures such as Denis Law, Sir Bobby Charlton and George Best.
