left Manchester United by mutual consent last week after a controversial interview.

The 37-year-old Ronaldo who returned to United in 2021 after 11 years, said he felt betrayed by Manchester United and did not have respect for manager Eric Ten Hag. He also hit out at the Glazer family and claimed that the club has not progressed since Sure Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013.

Olympic legend Usain Bolt who is a long time Manchester United fan said he is sad about Ronaldo’s departure and insisted that the Portuguese forward kept the team in the Premier League last season.  

"It's sad to see him go,”

said Bolt of Ronaldo.

“He played such an important role for us last season. He kept us in the Premier League last season. Because many games he was the one he scored, kept giving us points.

“So it is sad to seeing him going but I understand by listening to his interview there is a lot going on that a lot of us don't know.

“So I wish him all the best on his journey because I am a massive Cristiano Ronaldo fan. So it is sad to see him gone.”

Bolt also was asked about the Glazers' decision to put the club for sale and feels better days are ahead for his favourite team.

"For me it has been long time waiting for the fans,"

added Bolt.

"The fans have spoken about this for years. Since after Alex Ferguson, the club has been up and down, as we've seen Cristiano came out and spoke about a few things and it surprised me as a supporter to know that the club hasn't really moved on technology-wise to try to improve and to help the players to move forward.

"So, to get new owners hopefully they'll come in and develop the club in a way that is necessary."

Bolt revealed that he supports

2022 World Cup

"Argentina is my team,"

added Bolt.

"I do support Argentina. France and Brazil and Argentina are the frontrunners to win but I hope it's Argentina."
