During an explosive conversation with Piers Morgan last December, Cristiano Ronaldo was embroiled in a sensational exit from Manchester United. But he claims that he has changed for the better.
Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has returned to national team duty in time for the UEFA Euro 2023 Qualifications. He is currently spending time in Asia with Saudi Arabian powerhouses Al-Nassr after leaving Europe. After an explosive interview with well-known journalist Piers Morgan last December, in which he blasted the club’s management, head coach, and board for disrespecting him and forcing him to leave the club before the start of the current season, he and English powerhouse Manchester United eventually mutually terminated his contract.
Meanwhile, three months after leaving Old Trafford, Ronaldo has spoken publicly about his decision, saying that he is a “better man” now and content with the decision he made at the time. He also expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to continue representing Portugal at the international level despite the disappointing performance at the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.
“You have to go through some stuff to find out who’s on your side. I have no qualms about admitting that the last few years of my career were a disaster, but now is not the time for me to dwell on the past. Whether I succeeded or failed, I learned from the experience and moved on with my life. Most of the time, the view from the peak is blocked. While I’d never been through something like the last few months, I’ve learned the value of being well-prepared and have done so. Now I’m a stronger man, “As reported by 90min, Ronaldo made this statement at a press conference held before Portugal’s match against Leichenstien in Lisbon.
To far, Ronaldo has played in 10 games with the Knights of Najd and scored nine times in all competitions. He is the club’s current second-leading goal scorer and ranks sixth in the Saudi Pro League.
