Keane holds ten Hag responsible for Ronaldo’s premature exit

Man United legend Roy Keane thinks United manager Erik ten Hag is responsible for CR7’s departure from the club.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s interview with Piers Morgan, in which he accused the higher-ups in the club not respecting him as well as wanting him out of the club, has resulted in the Portuguese superstar leaving the club on mutual consent and now Roy Keane blames this exit on manager Erik ten Hag.

"I don't think it's been great management,"

Keane said on ITV.

"I think it's been a very difficult situation but I don't think the manager comes out of it [looking good].

"People might say he's put a marker down - part of management is looking after the top [players]. You do have to treat top, world-class players differently. This idea that you treat everyone the same, you don't.

"I think it's better for everybody. The club, obviously, don't want that dragging into the second half of the season, Ronaldo's obviously ran out of patience. People say 'is his reputation tarnished at

Manchester United

?' Far from it."

It was recently revealed that ten Hag was happy with Ronaldo moving out of the club in the summer but ultimately Ronaldo stayed, which Keane thinks was a mistake:

"He should have probably left in the summer, but whether that's the player's fault or the club's, it was never going to happen,"

he added.

"The new manager was never going to play him, you cannot have Ronaldo as a suit or fringe player. It's just not right. It's sad but these things happen."
