Graeme Souness blames Erik ten Hag and Manchester United for the Cristiano Ronaldo saga.

Manchester United confirm Cristiano Ronaldo will not accept the charge by FA

Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo was involved in an incident after he knocked out a phone out of a fan’s hand after a 1-0 defeat to Everton at Goodison Park last season. He received a police caution for the same.

Now the governing body of the Premier League Football Association (FA) decided to probe the incident and charged Cristiano Ronaldo with “improper and/or violent conduct” in a breach of FA Rule E3 and has been given till Monday to submit his reply to the charges.

According to BBC Sport, Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag confirmed that the Portuguese forward will not be accepting the charges levied on him and has the full backing of the club.

“We spoke about that (FA charge) and he will not accept it”

Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United was met with a lot of excitement with the Portuguese coming off a successful spell at his former side Juventus. He was seen as someone who would take Manchester United, who finished second in the Premier League the year before, closer to the title challenge and rival noisy neighbours Manchester City.

However, things did not turn out as expected and the team plummeted. Manchester United eventually settled for the Europa League, falling well short of expectations. Three different managers, a toxic dressing room and a sense of gloominess laid large in Old Trafford last season and a mutual feeling of wanting the season to be over as fast as possible.

Frustration amongst players was blatantly evident during games and Ronaldo’s incident in question is during one such evening when the team performed horrible and succumbed to a 1-0 loss to Everton which majorly hampered their UEFA Champions League qualifications chances.

Despite the season being in the category of one of the worst seasons for the club, Ronaldo managed to score 24 goals in all contributions having played 39 games clearly proving every doubter wrong about him being able to perform in the Premier League at the age of 37.

The Portuguese international made his message very clear to leave the club in the summer transfer window and his agent, Jorge Mendes, tried everything in his power to engineer a move for the player to one of the Champions League playing teams.

However, no move materialised and he ended up staying at United for the foreseeable future but has majorly been seen coming on as a substitute. Unlike the usual nature of superstars, Ronaldo is believed to have been totally professional once it was confirmed that he could not leave.

With the latest stance of support by Manchester United towards the incident in question, it showcases a relationship of respect and admiration from both the player and club towards each other and would definitely create an impact on the Portuguese continuing for longer at the club.

Just 24 hours before Paris St. Germain had its important UEFA Champions League match against S.L Benfica, Spanish outlet Marca (h/t SportBible) dropped a bombshell that French superstar Kylian Mbappe‘s relationship with the club hierarchy has completely broken down, just five months after signing a new contract.

It is claimed that Mbappe wants out of PSG as soon as the January transfer window which has alerted the top clubs around. PSG chiefs deny any speculation of a rift between the club and player however reputed journalists such as Fabrizio Romano have come out and confirmed about the current status of the relationship between the two.

Mbappe feels betrayed by the club hierarchy for not fulfilling the promises made to the player in a bid to stop him from moving to Real Madrid. Now, a saga which seemed to have found its peace for some time has started to rise up again.

Mbappe’s talent and ability are known to everyone and he is clearly in the category of one of the best players in the world currently. He is at his peak age and ready to spearhead one of Europe’s elite into success.

As soon as the news broke out, journalists started debating the possibility of a deal to take the player away from Paris happening and the clubs that could be given a shout.

Real Madrid is the obvious name on the list with Liverpool also deemed as a possibility due to the fact that Mbappe spoke to Jurgen Klopp before signing the contract extension.

Now, according to SportBible, Chelsea are the latest side to show a serious interest in the Frenchman and are genuine contenders to land his signature if the player ends up leaving PSG.

Chelsea owner Todd Boehly would be willing to give it all to secure a marquee signing during his early days in the tenure. The American owner was keen on signing Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United but was vetoed by Thomas Tuchel, which did not sit pretty well with the new owner.

Now, the Mbappe situation presents a wonderful opportunity for Boehly to show his seriousness and ruthlessness in making Chelsea one of the best teams in the world, which can secure world-class talents.

Erling Haaland and Mbappe are deemed to be the next two superstars to take over as heavyweights of the game. With Haaland’s impact and rise in popularity since his move to Manchester City, a move to the Premier League would provide Mbappe with the best chance to match up to the Norwegian forward.
