Man United Legend Eric Cantona Sends Strong Message To Cristiano Ronaldo After Joining Al-Nassr

Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, Eric Cantona said: “Cristiano Ronaldo came back and Manchester United wasn’t the Man United he left and sometimes he doesn’t realise things changed.

“Maybe he was surprised so many things changed. But I think Ronaldo didn’t realise — and he still doesn’t realise — he’s not 25 years old. He’s just older and he should have realised that instead of being not happy to play some games.

“He should have said, ‘okay, I am not 25 years old, I cannot play every game, but I will help the young players and accept that situation and that’s my situation’. It’s like everything in the world, you have people who accept they are older.

“You have to accept it. In everything we do. Not only in football. In everything. I cannot run as fast as when I was 30 years old, I have to accept it. I have to accept I will die someday. It’s difficult to accept it but we have to.”

Ronaldo terminated his Man United contract ‘by mutual consent’ before the World Cup after falling down the pecking order at Old Trafford under Erik ten Hag.

After failing to find himself a club in the Champions League, the 37-year-old ended up joining Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr on an astronomical contract.
