Manchester United player, Cristiano Ronaldo has opined that Wayne Rooney is jealous of him as he hit back at his former Manchester United teammate’s criticism of his behaviour.
But Ronaldo, 37, has not taken the criticism well and sniped back at the ex-England striker.
“I don’t know why he criticises me so badly… probably because he finished his career and I’m still playing at high level,” he said in an interview with The Sun. “I’m not going to say that I’m looking better than him. Which is true.”
Ronaldo has been heavily criticised by fans throughout the 2022-23 campaign.
The attacker wanted to leave the club in the summer transfer window but ultimately ended up staying.
He was dropped from the squad altogether after he refused to go on as a late substitute against Tottenham.
