Following Cristiano Ronaldo’s most recent outburst against the team, Manchester United appears to have begun taking harsh measures against him.

Ronaldo had criticised several aspects of the club in an explosive interview with Piers Morgan, saying that the organization was bullying him.

During the 90-minute interview, Ronaldo alleged that the Glazer family “didn’t care” about sporting achievement, confessed he “didn’t respect” manager Erik ten Hag, and criticized the lack of “development” following his 2008 departure.

However, a big portrait of the Portuguese captain from the side of Old Trafford was seen being torn down a few days after the interview.

The new development has sparked transfer rumors that could put an end to what was supposed to be an amazing reunion.

Earlier this week, the team released the following statement:

Manchester United observes the media coverage about an interview with Cristiano Ronaldo. When all the facts are known, the club will decide how to respond.

“Our attention is still on getting ready for the second half of the season and maintaining the spirit of togetherness that is developing among the players, coach, staff, and fans.”

An Adidas poster featuring Ronaldo to promote the new home uniform was seen being torn down from the stadium walls on Wednesday afternoon by workers and fans.
