In a recent interview, Cristiano Ronaldo made it clear that he doesn’t think much of Manchester United and coach Erik den Haag. A winter goodbye after the World Cup is said to be impossible. But where can CR7 go next? Like in Australia?
Will Cristiano Ronaldo be playing football in the new year in a new continent he is unfamiliar with as a professional?
Portugal’s superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who will lead his country as captain in Qatar and is already competing in his fifth World Cup (a feat he shares with legends like Lothar Mathews or Gianluigi Buffon, two world champions), now and soon after his critical interview with the British broadcaster “TalkTV”, is indeed a He communicated with Football Association Australia about the change.
“We are in talks,” Australian Professional Leagues (APL) executive director Danny Townsend, the league’s operations body, told radio station “SportFM” about the 37-year-old veteran. With the Red Devils.
Nani living with CR7: “What a time it is”
According to Townsend, he has been in direct contact with Cristiano Ronaldo’s manager and the well-known Jorge Mendes. Now let’s see “where this is going” together. An argument for “down under” engagement is that CR7’s grandparents live in Australia.
Additionally, Nani (36) plays a former teammate at Melbourne Victory. The two have played together for both the Portugal national team and Cristiano Ronaldo’s current club ManUnited, and share the same agent (Mendes). On top of that, Nani, who moved to Manchester from Sporting Lisbon four years after CR7, has been living with the Portugal international.
“What a time,” Nani once told “The Players’ Tribune” of his time together with Cristiano Ronaldo. “We were all young people who spoke the same language and we had a lot of fun. Cristiano had a swimming pool, a ping-pong table, a tennis court – and every day we competed in something.” However, it is still uncertain whether the two extraordinary footballers and 2016 European champions will actually reunite.
A United farewell for CR7 after the World Cup and a short winter break in the Premier League doesn’t seem unreasonable, and it’s clear the club has nothing against parting ways. The player finally made his point of view clear through his interview – for example with the sentence “I feel betrayed” or with a direct broadside in the direction of the current coach Den Haag: “I have no respect for him, because he has none. If you don’t respect me, I will never respect you.
