Following his shocking interview with Piers Morgan, Manchester United may choose to cancel Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract.
Ronaldo accused the club of ‘betraying’ him and slammed manager Erik ten Hag, saying he doesn’t’respect’ the Dutchman in excerpts from his interview with Piers Morgan. He also chastised Wayne Rooney, his former teammate, for his continuous criticism.
Litigation and Sports Lawyer, David Seligman took to Twitter to say that United could have the right to terminate Ronaldo’s contract due to a ‘material breach of the implied duty of trust and confidence’.
According to him, the 37-year-old could be dismissed as United (the employer) have lost confidence in Ronaldo (the employee) to such an extent that is not feasible for him to return to work.
His now-deleted Tweet read: ‘After that interview, Man United would likely have grounds to terminate Ronaldo’s contract – material breach of the implied duty of trust and confidence as well as express terms regarding bringing club into disrepute.’
