Cristiano Ronaldo has slammed former Manchester United teammate Wayne Rooney for criticizing the Portuguese star, claiming he is jealous because his career is over.

Rooney, spent five years at Old Trafford playing with the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, had criticized Ronaldo for his refusal to use a substitute against Tottenham.

The 37-year-old stormed down the tunnel before ended with the Red Devils leading by two goals. As a result, dismissed him, had train with the youth team, and assessed a two-week pay fine.

Ronaldo’s behaviour, which Rooney deemed “awful,” was justified in his eyes, and he believed that United was a better team without the former Real star.

Ronaldo gave an explosive interview on Sunday in which he blasted Ten Hag over the incident, claiming he would ‘never respect’ the Dutchman, while he has also taken aim at Rooney over his remarks.


Speaking to Piers Morgan Uncensored, Ronaldo said: ‘I why he criticises me so badly… probably because he finished his career and I’m still playing at a high level. ‘I’m not going to say that I’m looking better than him. Which is true…’

Rooney had not been negative about Ronaldo and felt he could still an asset for United if he ‘got his head down’ – though Sunday’s bombshell interview means he has not listened to the advice.

Asked about Ronaldo’s behaviour, and whether Manchester United are a better team with in the team, Rooney told talkSPORT on Friday: ‘No, I don’t think so.

‘I think the career he’s had, and Lionel Messi are probably the two best players of all time – and you can go either way with that [which one of them is the greatest], whichever way you decide.

‘But I just think the things he’s from the start of the season really are not acceptable for Manchester United.

‘Obviously I’ve seen Roy Keane defend him. Roy wouldn’t have accepted that. Roy wouldn’t have accepted that at all. ‘So it’s a distraction that Manchester United don’t need at the minute, they’re trying to rebuild.

‘And for Cristiano, just put your head down and work and ready to play when the manager needs you. If he does that, I think he’ll an asset. If he doesn’t, I think it will become an unwanted distraction.’
