British broadcaster Piers Morgan, a close friend of Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo, has demanded that Manchester United coach Eric Ten Hag kneel before Ronaldo and apologize if Manchester united will not have a successful season in absence of the Portuguese superstar.

In an interview with Morgan last November, the Portuguese captain hit out at the United board and the Dutch coach. The Red Devils terminated his contract after the 37-year-old star revealed he did not respect the former Ajax coach.

Ronaldo, who tried to leave United in the last summer transfer window, was forced to stay at Manchester after not finding a team that could offer him Champions League football this term. He started only 8 games while playing 16 games under Ten Hag and managed to score only 3 goals.

The former Real Madrid star and the Premier League club then terminated the Portuguese giant’s contract by mutual consent after he gave a sensational interview to Morgan just before the World Cup began. Ronaldo, who then joined the Saudi club Al-Nasr, made his debut for the new club back on 22 January only.

Arsenal supporter Morgan, who has always supported Ronaldo, was recently asked whether the 5-time Ballon d’Or winner should apologize for his attack on the Dutch coach if Ten Hag will be successful in Ronaldo’s absence.

In response, Morgan told talkSPORT, “Absolutely not. Ten Hag should get on his knees and apologize to Ronaldo for the insult he has caused.”
