Piers Morgan believes Cristiano Ronaldo would fire Arsenal to the Premier League title and feels there is little chance of him returning to Manchester United after the World Cup. The Portuguese forward sat down with Morgan for a 90-minute interview which will air later this week, though a number of quotes and clips have already been released in which he hits out at United’s hierarchy and says he will ‘never respect’ Erik ten Hag. Ronaldo was axed by the Dutchman for refusing to be subbed on against Tottenham last month, as well as fined two weeks’ wages, and his latest comments will likely go down like a lead balloon at Old Trafford.
Piers Morgan, who supports Premier League giants Arsenal, has backed Mikel Arteta to sign Cristiano Ronaldo in January. Morgan believes that Ronaldo, along with Gabriel Jesus, would fire Arsenal to Premier League glory at the end of the season. Cristiano Ronaldo sat down with Morgan for a revealing 90-minute interview, a section of which was released on Sunday night (November 13) via The Sun. In the interview, Ronaldo claimed that Manchester United had been trying to push him out and admitted that he had no respect for current coach Erik ten Hag. On the back of such an explosive interview, it is unlikely that Ronaldo will return to Old Trafford after the 2022 FIFA World Cup. And Morgan, who has been a vocal supporter of the Portuguese, has admitted that he would love to see him at Arsenal.
It remains to be seen exactly how the situation is handled by Manchester United, who now have over one month without match action due to the World Cup. However similar scenarios, such as Romelu Lukaku’s interview while at Chelsea and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s disciplinary concerns at Arsenal, have often led to a player leaving the club after. Should the 37-year-old be available, the Gunners have been urged to sign him alongside striker Gabriel Jesus by Piers Morgan himself as a way to fire them to the title. Responding to another tweet claiming he would want to sign the forward at Arsenal, he replied : “Yes, actually. He’s exactly what we need. Cristiano and Gabriel Jesus would take us to the title.’
