LONDON, UK: After Manchester United management, especially Dutch manager Erik ten Hag, questioned Cristiano Ronaldo on his late arrival for preseason owing to his daughter's illness, the player has expressed that the club lacked "empathy." In an explosive interview on 'Piers Morgan Uncensored', the soccer star also slammed the current Manchester United manager and the management for "betraying him".

The 37-year-old Portuguese and his 28-year-old girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez earlier disclosed that their son had passed away at birth on April 18 but that his twin daughter had lived. The couple called his passing "the greatest grief," as tributes from all around the football world, including rival Liverpool fans singing "You'll Never Walk Alone" after a minute of applause, poured in.

According to the Daily Mail, Ronaldo is appalled by United’s management. Most notably in July, when his three-month-old was brought to the hospital. He wanted to stay with his daughter and so the football sensation arrived late for preseason practice. Ronaldo claimed that after he explained the circumstances surrounding his tardy return, club officials left him feeling "hurt" and "bad."

Only three months had passed since the devastating death of his infant son before his daughter fell ill.

Cristiano wrote a devastating letter in April announcing his and Georgina's tragic loss. He wrote, "Only the birth of our baby girl gives us the strength to live this moment with some hope and happiness. We would like to thank the doctors and nurses for all their expert care and support. We are all devastated at this loss and we kindly ask for privacy at this very difficult time. Our baby boy, you are our angel. We will always love you."

Fans of the club are well aware of CR7’s woes. A deplorable start to the season both on and off the pitch has left the six-time Ballon D’or winner in a tricky situation. Ronaldo has now unleashed an astonishing attack on his team and manager Erik ten Hag and this appears to be the end of his time at Old Trafford. In addition, Ronaldo claimed that club executives were already attempting to oust him from the club, claiming that he had no regard for the Dutchman and felt "betrayed."

"I don't have respect for him because he doesn't show respect for me," said the Portuguese star. Further adding, "Some people, they don't want me here - not only the coach but the other two or three guys. Not only this year, but last year too. Honestly, I shouldn't say that. But listen, I don't care. People should listen to the truth. Yes, I feel betrayed."
