    As a Messi fan, ronaldo is so well spoken, humble, and honest. It's an honour listening to him speak. Piers also does an excellent job allowing him to speak and you can tell ronaldo trusted piers and used this opportunity to air his grievances. Great interview !

    • Lettuce
      Lettuce 8 months ago +28

      @sj appiyah just pointing out a couple of things:
      - When responding about Rooney he brought up his looks, how unnecessary and rude was that
      - Claimed Ten Haag disrespected him, where is the proof of that? He felt insulted he's benched just because he's Ronaldo?

    • Elma F
      Elma F 8 months ago +14

      @Lettuce if someone is humble that does not mean they don’t know their worth ☺️ ronaldo is a great player and his team treated him like he wasn’t. such lack of respect from their side. ronaldo is a footballer who was committed to football game truly, thinking young players should respect old ones like he did and i guess he respected the same for him, but let alone that, they didn’t even respect him as a human i mean you can relate in that part, if you were mourning over your child + another sick child and someone didn’t believe you… well i mean you wouldn’t respect them either lol, you can write here all you want but when it’s real life i’m sure you’d do them much worse than ronaldo if it happened to you. the guy is world wide famous, no. 1 followed person in the world, do you expect him to let anyone treat him like he’s nothing? bffr, ronaldo’s influence is waaay beyond football and his part in football is also one of the best, person and player like that needs to be treated well

    • Lettuce
      Lettuce 8 months ago +17

      @Elma F still doesn't negate the fact that he said dumb things that a true professional shouldn't have said. Bringing up Rooney's looks? Also, Ten Haag did not disrespect Ronaldo, watch Ten Haag's interviews, you'd see he was defending Ronaldo until he just ran off after being subbed during the Tottenham game.

    I understand more and more why he did this interview. Seeing what’s happening over at PSG with how some of the players are being treated is a disgrace. I get his need to set the record straight. It’s hard to see great players being treated badly. I’m a Messi fan btw, but these guys deserve to be treated with respect.
    The parts about the press were especially timely.

      marks marsh 10 months ago +189

      nobody is saying he not a nice guy but it was not right of him to do the interview. He plays for Manchester United and to be fair it was them who gave him his stage in the first place. He should have much more respect for the club even if he does not like the manager. And all he is really moaning about is not being named in the starting eleven. So many great players at Manchester United it should not be a guarantee that Ronaldo starts. He is undoubtedly one of the greatest players ever but he is a bit older now so if the manager wants to start with younger players like Marcus Rashford it should not be seen as disrespectful to Ronaldo. It has always been the way that older players no matter their greatness eventually become used less and less

    He's a confident golden icon for boys who want something. Always inspires people the right way, sacrificed so much. Tells the younger generation to stay healthy and work hard, doesn't advertise for unhealthy profitable brands. And no wonder people and media target him, of course they get a lot of attention as soon as they use his name.
    I love Cristiano Ronaldo, a self made man from Madeira who lives by what he preaches.
    Respect. Always

      The clubs he has been with have treated him very well by what i can tell. That includes Man U. He is basically unable to accept that at the age of 37 he is not guaranteed a place in the starting 11 and that he might be called upon as a substitute in the last 5 minutes. What an utter rich blessed arse. From Madeira

    Respect! Those words he said hit me hard! Young generation is living in a different Era. He is right, it is like we lost connection with them! We grew up with some values and they have totally different values from ours! This is if they actually have any to begin with! I hope the new generations can really stay humble, and preserve what humanity is here for! Which is respect and love, for elders, for those who have more experience, for those who don't have any, for everyone! Work for things! Don't take them for granted! Appreciate what you have...It was a strong message from this legend!

Idk about u but most people making fun of him are toxic messi fans and what they fail to realize is that personally these two guys never had any rivalry, two great players different with different style playing in the same decade = all the attention from the international press and it's the stupid debate among fans that fired up this debate in the first place. Their playing styles are incomparable to each other.

    I have a TON of respect for Cristiano Ronaldo, he is a living example and motivation just like almost every other Athlete doing well for themselves. An interview like this can't be "wrong" I say this because this isn't the Quetionaire or investigative type of interview. This is more of A man coming out to air his experiences, recent tribulations and feeling. The questions here are just a mere guide on what points to speak on Next.

You have been my role model ever since Manchester united and watching this interview reminded me of why I admire and respect you so much. You are AUTHENTIC in this world of fakes and carry yourself in an Outstanding way. That is why they are so filled with jealousy and envy. But that is also why the fans love you. Thank you for most of all Keeping your morals intact because it is because of that that you are who you are - 👑🐐. God Bless you, protect you and keep you and your family, always.

  • A G
    A G 6 months ago +2

    He is the G.O.A.T. and football is not always bigger than the players that allow it, in part, to exist. In English football there is great weight on players to never speak badly about obvious problems with the individuals that make up the corporate league, team owners and the media. We are now in a time with fan channels having a larger number of viewers than main stream sports channels. And us fans want to hear all of it. The good and the dirt. And that is a bug up their arses as well as for their sponsors. The large and well funded main stream narrative creators hate the small content creators.

    Exposing the club at the top on how its been run has ultimately caused the owners to what it looks like finally sell the club.

    He had every right to say the world his side of the story, when Ten Hag had been lowering him to a bench warmer, and the whole media was scrutinising and speculating every breath of CR7. The man's greatest armor was his mind. And once in 20 years, his mental space was shattered with a tragedy, the intensity of which none of us could imagine. And one after the other everyone wanted to see this man fall.

    I love both messi and ronaldo both are GOAT for me. People use to debate saying Messi is better than Ronaldo or Ronaldo is better than Messi but they both have a great career. This type of personality can't be compared to anyone. They are so humble, they are so down to earth, their positive attitude and positive thinking and their mentality is on another level. They are the top level footballers but they are also top level at everything. Just I like them both and I will like them because for me there is no other footballer that can be compared to them. This much respect is very less for both of them. And I just have a dream to meet Ronaldo and Messi once. May my dream be fulfilled one day. Love you both♥️♥️💗💗💓💓 Cristiano and Messi are real life Super heroes in football...😊😊

He clearly deserves respect, on and off the field. Now I see why my sons have been HUGE Ronaldo fans since they were teens. Their dream has always been to meet him and see him play. Now I understand why. Doesn't matter where he plays, he'll always have super fans in our family.

      Ronaldo is bigger than man utd,man utd doesn’t deserve him how can you criticize a man he help the club throughout last season,the players weren’t in form he was the only player who carry the club along throughout last season and if not for his goals man utd won’t be playing Europa cup,he’s bigger than the club and the coach in terms of everything

      ​@Michael Stephen No he's not. No player is bigger than the club, ever. Ronaldo became a great at Manchester United, through his own hard work and tenacity, but also through the stewardship of Sir Alex Ferguson. Ronaldo has spat on the legacy of SAF by purposefully undermining United's current manager.
      He is a legend of football, but if you can't see he's acting like a spoilt brat who can't accept he no longer has the pace to play at the top level, you're incredibly deluded.
      This is from someone who's watched every match he's played since rejoining Man U. Something I doubt most of his deluded fanboys have done.
