France defender Raphael Varane says the situation around his club Manchester United and teammate Cristiano Ronaldo “affects” all of the players.
In excerpts of a television interview, Ronaldo said he feels “betrayed” by the club, does not respect manager Erik ten Hag and is being forced out.
United said they would consider a response “after the full facts have been established”.
Ronaldo refused to be a late substitute during the victory over Tottenham Hotspur on The 19Th of October, and United made it absolutely clear behind the scenes that they backed Ten Hag to deal with the situation.
The 37-year-old Portugal international was then not involved in the matchday squad for the following game at Chelsea.
