Man Utd fans are very emotional over Cristiano Ronaldo 'goodbye' compilation, it didn't have to end this way
Manchester United fans are getting emotional over a Cristiano Ronaldo video looking back at the best bits of his 'homecoming'.
Reports on Friday claimed United have taken the 'first steps' towards kicking Ronaldo out of the club following his tell-all interview with Piers Morgan.
The 37-year-old will be 'effectively sacked' for a breach of contract. Ronaldo took aim at United manager Erik ten Hag, as well as the club's owners, the Glazer family, across a 90-minute chat on TalkTV.
Ronaldo, who is currently on £500,000-per-week at Old Trafford, is set to lose £16 million in wages after United decided 'there was no way back'.
It's a miserable end to Ronaldo's second stint as a United player, which started with so much promise in August 2021.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner made a stunning return to the Premier League last summer, 12 years after leaving for Real Madrid.
He scored twice on his second debut in a 4-1 victory over Newcastle United. Ronaldo scored 24 goals in all competitions, including vital last-minute winners against Villarreal and Atalanta in the Champions League.
Two Premier League hat-tricks in the space of a month against Norwich City and Tottenham Hotspur stand out as highlights too.
It was a poor season for United who finished with their lowest-ever Premier League points tally. Despite that, most were happy to see Ronaldo strut his stuff in a red shirt one last time. They're just very disappointed with how it's finished.
One person commented: "I cried to be honest. It shouldn't have ended this way."
Another said: "This video has made saying goodbye so much harder."
A third tweeted: "Can't lie, I'm emotional. I'll try to remember the good times."
While someone put: "I wouldn't change Ronnie coming back for a minute. To feel like a kid again and see my idol scoring goals for the club I love again is everything and more."
The video ends with an excerpt of Ronaldo's first interview after re-joining the club last year.
He speaks fondly of the fans and thanks them for all their support over the years.
"The Manchester United fans, they are special," Ronaldo admitted. "I remember very well. I know they still sing my songs, which makes me feel happy.
"My commitment is to give everything on the pitch, like I did before. Like I do all the time."
