In the interview with Piers Morgan, Cristiano Ronaldo attacks almost everyone linked to Manchester United. Whether it’s current players or former teammates he takes everyone down. He also targeted Garry Neville who criticized Ronaldo on his current form.
Ronaldo said, “It’s hard to listen [to] that kind of criticism and negative about people who play with you, for example, Gary Neville, as well. I think they take advantage of that [his profile] because they are not stupid. I’m the number one followed guy in the world. It’s not by coincidence”.
He further added, “To listen as ex-colleagues or team-mates criticize you when they only see one point of view. It’s easy. It’s easy to criticize, I don’t know if you have a job in television that they must criticize to be more famous. I really don’t understand it. It’s hard when you see people who were in the dressing room with you criticizing that way”.
Ronaldo continued by saying that Neville wasn’t his friend and that they would never have dinner together. Neville now seems to have responded to his former Old Trafford teammate with a playful tweet.
Neville took his Twitter and tweeted in the morning, “Anyone for Dinner”? He clearly mocked Cristiano Ronaldo’s comment about him for not having dinner together.
Neville responded after the video of Ronaldo and his Portuguese and Man United teammate Bruno Fernandes went viral.
What was in the video of Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno?
A video of Ronaldo and Bruno went viral as both Portuguese stars meet each other in the dressing room for the World Cup in Qatar. But the meeting was a little awkward as we all know what Ronaldo did in an interview with Piers Morgan.
After arriving with the rest of the Portugal team in preparation for their trip to Qatar, Fernandes passed his United teammate. The midfielder even left Ronaldo, who had offered to shake hands with his compatriot, hanging before reneging and chatting briefly with his Old Trafford counterpart before hurriedly moving on.
But for some, there is nothing wrong with the video, as it is just like a normal handshake. Many say that people just making it too much by manipulating a normal video and just letting them prepare for the upcoming FIFA World Cup.
