'He’s not the problem' - Piers Morgan on why Cristiano Ronaldo will leave Manchester United

“I’ve had a lot of chats with him about this and I know that his frustration has been boiling and boiling and boiling throughout the year,” a UK TV personality Piers Morgan told Talksport about Cristiano Ronaldo.

“Remember, he came to Manchester United again because he believed that he could win things with them and believed that he was going to be a missing cog in the wheel and they’d not only qualify for the Champions League, but that they might even win the league.

“I think he was incredibly disappointed by the general level of dedication, hard graft, enthusiasm and will to win, not to mention the hunger of that Man United squad. Particularly some of the younger players.

“He was soaking up the advice [from Scholes, Keane, Giggs, Ferdinand when he was a teenager] but I got the impression from the interview that he gave that he’s not been getting that at United. They don’t really want to hear it.

“When you look at those younger United players, there’s a lot of talent there but do they have anything like the drive needed, which comes from within, as Ronaldo says.

“He ended up scoring 24 goals last season, 18 in the league, second behind Son and Salah. He scored one more league goal than Harry Kane who is nearly 10 years younger than him.

“This guy is supposedly supposed to be the problem at Manchester United. He’s not the problem, and he’s going to leave, I think, because he’s absolutely sick and tired of having to carry that squad.”

Piers Morgan is perceived to have a well disposed relationship with Cristiano. An Arsenal fan, Morgan as of late encouraged the Portuguese to think about a move to the Emirates.

Numerous sources has confirmed Cristiano Ronaldo want to leave United. He has not gotten back to training yet and his participation in the team’s Thailand and Australia visit is in uncertainty.

'Criminal!' - Paul Scholes blasts two Man United players after Brighton defeat

Paul Scholes hammered Scott McTominay and Fred after Manchester United slipped to a disappointed defeat to Brighton in their Premier League next season opener.

Erik ten Hag endured a horrible first serious game as United manager as his Red Devils side were beaten 2-1 at Old Trafford.

Pascal Gross scored two goals in nine first-half minutes as Brighton took a directing lead which drove the home side to be booed off at half-time.

United, who finished sixth last season, improved after the break but were unable to mount a comeback despite Alexis Mac Allister’s unfortunate own goal.

It was Brighton’s first-ever win at the Theatre of Dreams and marked a deflating start to the Ten Hag era at Manchester United.

Scholes described United’s first-half performance as ‘shambolic’ and singled out midfield duo McTominay and Fred for criticism.

“It was a shocking start for Man United and the first half was shambolic really, Scholes told Premier League productions. “The signs were there right from the first few minutes that this was going to be bad.

“McTominay was always trying to run with the ball, ridiculous. The quality in the middle of the pitch was really poor.

“I was happy he didn’t get sent off [for a high challenge] but I think he was slightly lucky. Again, he’s running with the ball, absolutely ridiculous.

“It could easily have been a red card. The quality in the middle of the pitch was nowhere near good enough but we’ve seen that for the last few years with these two players.

“With Fred and McTominay, he [Ten Hag] is going to have to go with just one of them but even one of them is probably too many.

“Fred gives the ball away all the time and McTominay’s trying to run with the ball constantly and then gives it away. Pass it to your best players! It’s not that difficult. It’s criminal on a day like today.”

West Ham vs Man City: Haaland nets debut brace (Highlights)

New Manchester City signing Erling Haaland marked his Premier League debut with a double as the champions began their title defence with a clinical 2-0 victory over West Ham United at the London Stadium on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola’s City were awarded a penalty after 36 minutes when Haaland charged past the West Ham defence to latch onto a through ball and take it around Alphonse Areola before being fouled by the substitute goalkeeper.

The Norwegian striker stepped up to convert the spot kick, his cool finish sending Areola the wrong way to give City a deserved lead after an utterly dominant first half in which West Ham were rarely able to venture from their own box.
