Record players: Christiano Ronaldo and Manchester United separate

Cristiano Ronaldo leaves Manchester United by mutual consent, effective immediately.

"The club thank him for his immense contribution in two games at Old Trafford, scoring 145 goals in 346 appearances, and wish him and his family all the best for the future," said a statement from the English football club on Tuesday night.

"Everyone at Manchester United remains focused on continuing the progress of the team under Erik ten Hag and working together to succeed on the pitch," it continued.

In an interview with British star presenter Piers Morgan, superstar Ronaldo, who is currently in action at the World Cup in Qatar, accused the Man United club officials and coach Erik ten Hag of "treason" and criticized the Glazer family, who own the club. The Glazers are not interested in the club, the Portuguese complained in the interview, which was broadcast over two evenings on TalkTV. He has no respect for coach Ten Hag because he doesn't respect him either.

After the first excerpts from the interview were published, Man United said they would first analyze all the facts before reacting to them. Manchester United announced consequences on Friday. "Manchester United took appropriate action this morning in response to Cristiano Ronaldo's recent media interview," the club's website said in an unusually brief statement on Friday.
