On Sunday night, Leo traveled to Abu Dhabi to join the Argentine team, and ‘CR7’ gave an interview to Sky Sports where he released all the quarrels he has inside and pointed directly to the Manchester United coach, Erik ten Hag, not to want him inside the club. “I don’t respect him if he doesn’t respect me,” he said, noting that the institution had no empathy for him when he suffered the episode of the loss of one of his children and after an illness of another of his children. .

Thus, Cristiano arrived in Lisbon where yesterday he trained with the Portugal squad. United issued a statement in which they reported investigating what the attacker said and the English press assured that he will be fined 1.5 million euros for criticizing him.
