Cristiano Ronaldo has given Piers Morgan's son the boots he scored his 'final Manchester United goals in' as the air date of his box-office interview looms.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner sat down with Morgan to 'set the record straight' about his second stint at Old Trafford. Ronaldo has pulled no punches, calling out manager Erik ten Hag, club owners the Glazer family, plus former teammates Gary Neville and Wayne Rooney.
His chat with Morgan will air on TalkTV on Wednesday and Thursday. As thanks, he decided to give Pier's son Spencer a gift. Check out the video below.
Piers asked Ronaldo if he'd scored goals in the boots he'd just signed, with the 37-year-old replying: "I scored a few goals [wearing these boots] - not many! But I scored a few."
Ronaldo has scored three goals in all competitions this season, with his most recent coming in a 3-0 win over FC Sheriff in the Europa League last month.
Spencer shared an image of himself holding the boots on Instagram. He then joked it was time to find Ronaldo a new club in the January transfer window.
"Christmas came early this year. Thank you Cristiano for the boots you banged your final Man Utd goals in. Now let's find you a new club," Spencer joked. "(Disclaimer: I’ll be wearing these everywhere from now on so mind your feet if you see me)."
Ronaldo attempted to leave United in the summer after they failed to qualify for the Champions League.
No concrete offers arrived, however, meaning he had no choice but to stay.
Ten Hag has preferred to use Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial up front whenever possible, relegating Ronaldo to the bench.
The Portugal international was made captain for the first time since January for a 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa earlier this month.
While giving his thoughts on ten Hag, Ronaldo claimed: "I don’t have respect for him because he doesn’t show respect for me. If you don’t have respect for me, I’m never gonna have respect for you.
"If you don’t have respect for me, I’m never gonna have respect for you."
Reports claim ten Hag has told United's hierarchy Ronaldo can't play for the club again, given the inflammatory nature of his comments.
United themselves will decide on what action to take when the interview has aired in its entirety.
