Furious Manchester United stars are demanding Cristiano Ronaldo be axed from the dressing room before the end of the Qatar World Cup.
Following a disappointing start to the 2022/23 season, in which he has registered just one Premier League goal, the Portuguese megastar has hit out club officials in a controversial interview, sensationally claiming to Talk TV host Piers Morgan that United have "betrayed" him.
Ronaldo, 37, further states he has "no respect" for manager Erik ten Hag whilst also taking aim at several first-team stars, who lack the desire to seize a legacy similar to his own.

"Their [Man Utd's younger players'] hunger [is different]. I think they have things more easily, everything's easy, they don't suffer – and they don't care," Ronaldo told Morgan.
"If you tell me what I see in Manchester United, I can mention probably Diogo Dalot. He's young but he's very professional and I have no doubts that he's going to have longevity in football.
"We have a few ones more – probably [Lisandro] Martinez – but like Dalot it's difficult to say."
HAVE YOUR SAY! Should Man Utd terminate Ronaldo's contract? Let us know in the comments section.
The Daily Mail report the first part of the unauthorised interview has not gone down well with those affiliated with the club. Several ex-United stars have already called for their former side to terminate Ronaldo's contract.
Gary Neville, who Ronaldo took issue with for using his name, has urged the club to rip up his contract stating: "He [Ronaldo] wouldn't have done this interview if he wanted a way back. This interview was one he knew would bring about the headlines… and would bring the end of his Manchester United career."
The club are waiting for the full release of the interview before deciding their course of disciplinary action. United chiefs are yet to rule out ripping up Ronaldo's deal, which expires at the end of the current campaign.
