‘Fans really owe Erik ten Hag an apology’: Man United supporters insist Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Saudi side Al-Nassr proves the Dutch boss was RIGHT to exile the Portuguese forward
The Portuguese completed his free-transfer move to Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr on Friday evening.
Ronaldo’s United contract was terminated on November 22 following a bizarre bombshell interview with Piers Morgan criticising the club.

Although the Dutch boss, after arriving from Ajax this summer, initially said Ronaldo was part of his plans, he dropped the 37-year-old veteran to the bench and oversaw his departure.
And supporters have now taken to social media to state that Ten Hag was right to sideline the forward – with some calling for fans and pundits to apologise to the 52-year-old for ever doubting his actions.
One said: ‘Ronaldo going to Saudi league only further strengthens Ten Hag’s stance on him throughout this season.’
Another added: ‘Perfectly reasonable a player of his age to finish his career in this way, but it’s absolutely incompatible with everything he’s said and done in the past. Ten Hag didn’t make a single wrong step in his treatment of Ronaldo, incredible management really.’
And fans quickly took to Twitter to say manager Ten Hag was right to sideline the forward, 37
A third posted: ‘Cristiano has just basically admitted that Erik was right #Ronaldo #MUFC.’
One continued: ‘Feel bad for Ronaldo, a GOAT and United legend for me! But terminating his contract was really a power move by United and EtH #MUFC.’
Another tweeted: ‘ETH is owed some apologies from certain pundits. Ronaldo just because what he’s done before doesn’t mean he deserves to start and play. He’s lost it and those pundits need to get out of his a*** and admit ETH was correct, seeing his day to day work and games.’
And a sixth concluded: ‘Alot of pundits and rivals fans really owe ETH an apology regarding this Ronaldo situation. #MUFC.’
