Cristiano Ronaldo part ways with Manchester United

Manchester: The English Premiere League club Manchester United on Tuesday announced that they have decided to part ways with Cristiano Ronaldo by "mutual agreement" and with immediate effect.

The club announced the split with the superstar footballer with a terse statement on several of its social media platforms.

"Cristiano Ronaldo is to leave Manchester United by mutual agreement, with immediate effect," the club said in its statement.

"The club thanks him for his immense contribution across two spells at Old Trafford, scoring 145 goals in 346 appearances, and wishes him and his family well for the future."

The relationship between the club and the Portuguese star worsened after his disparaging remarks against the club and coach in an explosive interview just before he left to represent his national team in the World Cup in Qatar.

In the interview, taking a dig at the Manager, Erik ten Hag, the Portuguese star said that he has "no respect" for the manager because he "doesn't show respect for me". He also said that he is I feeling "betrayed" by the team for trying to force him out of the team.

Soon after the full interview was aired, Manchester United said it has "initiated appropriate steps" in response to the interview.

Now that the two parties have decided on an amicable divorce, the club said it would move on and concentrate on preparing for the restart of the season after the World Cup break.

"Everyone at Manchester United remains focused on continuing the team's progress under Erik ten Hag and working together to deliver success on the pitch," Man United said.

Ronaldo has reportedly recovered from an injury and is hopeful of starting Portugal's first match against Ghana on Thursday.
