Manchester United superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, has claimed that the Glazer family does not care about the Premier League club.
This revelation was made in the latest snippet of the 37-year-old’s interview with Piers Morgan.
As his interview with Piers Morgan continues to be released in short clips, Ronaldo admitted to Morgan that he does not feel as though the Glazers care about United and stated that he has had no contact with them.
He said: “The owners of the club, listen, the Glazers, they don’t care about the club – I mean professional sport.
“As you know Manchester (United) is a marketing club, they will get its money from the marketing. The sports, they don’t really care in my opinion.”
Asked by Morgan if he had ever spoken to them, Ronaldo responded ‘never’ and added: “The fans are always right. I think the fans should know the truth, should know that the players we want the best for the club. I want the best for the club. This is why I came to Manchester United, this is why I love this club.
“But you have some things inside the club which don’t help Manchester (United) to reach the top level, as (Manchester) City, Liverpool and even now Arsenal.”
The Glazer family’s ownership of the club has long been to the resent of most United fans. A breakaway club formed in response to their 2005 purchase and several protests have been staged against their ownership, with anti-Glazer chants regularly heard in the stands once again this season.
