Ronaldo ignored the bitter Manchester United senior and left
Although he has risen to one of the best players in football history, his personality has not matured at all. Cristiano Ronaldo (37, Manchester United) intentionally ignored and passed Manchester United’s senior Gary Neville (47), who recently criticized him, making it a mockery.
British media Sports Bible posted a video on the 31st (Korea Standard Time) with a laughing emoticon, saying, “Ronaldo took Neville’s criticism extremely privately.”
It happened ahead of the 14th round of the 2022-2023 English Premier League (EPL) against West Ham United at Old Trafford in Manchester, England. British broadcaster Sky Sports was filming a preview of the match with panelists Louis Saha, 44, Jamie Redknapp, 49, and Neville.
Ronaldo, who warmed up and came in, greeted Saha and Redknapp warmly. But Neville, who was next to him, ran toward the stadium without giving a single glance. It was a deliberate passing that made people awkward, too, and Neville laughed the situation off, saying, “I think we’re off the Christmas (card-taking) list, right?”
It is widely believed that Neville had a bitter remark in mind not long ago. Ronaldo left the stadium without permission in the match against Tottenham on the 20th, refusing to order Manchester United coach Eric Ten Hagh to replace him. Even the Manchester United club, which was protecting Ronaldo, was not professional enough to impose its own ban, and Neville, a senior Manchester United player, also said, “It is unacceptable.”
It is a poor behavior that has been childlike in response to legitimate criticism by anyone. Furthermore, Saha and Neville, who were together, were teammates and seniors during Ronaldo’s first Manchester United season. In particular, Neville is a one-club man who has been active in Manchester United for more than 20 years. He made such a big senior embarrassed, and rival Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher laughed on social media, saying, “Neville, welcome to the club ignored by Ronaldo.”
Because Carragher is a victim of the same experience. Ronaldo intentionally ignored Carragher, who had been bitter to him, and passed away in August. Coincidentally, Neville was next to him at this time, and Ronaldo greeted him warmly. However, even Neville turned away when he uttered bitter words toward him.
Fans reacted explosively to Ronaldo’s unwavering behavior, saying, “It’s one of the reasons why Messi is a soccer player,” “I’m really ashamed,” and “It’s too childish.”
