Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has been criticised for his handling over Cristiano Ronaldo’s acrimonious exit from Old Trafford by Roy Keane.

Ronaldo has left Manchester United by mutual consent following his explosive interview with Piers Morgan.
United issued a 67-word statement on Tuesday evening announcing they had reached a mutual agreement with the 37-year-old forward to terminate his contract.
In the interview on TalkTV – aired in two parts on Wednesday and Thursday last week – Ronaldo said he felt “betrayed” by the club and has “no respect” for manager Erik ten Hag.
Speaking to ITV prior to Germany’s World Cup game against Japan, Sky Sports pundit Keane believes Ten Hag could have handled the situation better.
“I don’t think it’s been great management,” said Keane. “I think it’s been a very difficult situation but I don’t think the manger comes out with it [looking well].
“People might say he’s put a marker down, part of management is looking after the top. 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. You 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.”
