Man Utd fans make their feelings of Cristiano Ronaldo clear with new chant vs Burnley

Man Utd fans make their feelings of Cristiano Ronaldo clear with a brutal new chant vs Burnley in the two sides’ midweek game.

After that much talked about Piers Morgan interview in November, the 37-year old veteran was got rid of by the club, with Ronaldo taking aim at the Glazers, manager Erik ten Hag and many of his former teammates.

Ronaldo left Old Trafford through mutual consent and United issued a statement around 67 words announcing that Ronaldo had agreed to leave the club. He was the only player who was playing at the World Cup as a free agent.

In the next few days, the Portuguese ace is expected to sign for Al-Nassr, a Saudi Arabian club. He was a Reds Devils’ ace who scored 145 goals and 64 assists in his two stints. The club’s fans expressed their opinions on the player during United’s match against Burnley.

Thousands of the Old Trafford faithful supporters chanted about Ronaldo, singing in a video uploaded to TikTok: “I don’t care about Ronny, Ronny don’t care about me, all I care about is MUFC.”

Ten Hag’s side secured their place in the final eight of the Carabao Cup by winning 2-0 against Burnley. United’s win was sealed by goals from Christian Eriksen (26′) and Marcus Rashford (57′).

Vincent Kompany’s Burnley gave as good as they got, though didn’t massively test Martin Dubravka.

United will be playing Charlton in the quarter-finals next month as a reward for beating the Championship table-toppers. It was a win over Brighton on spot kicks that saw the Addicks secure their place in last eight.

Manchester United gave Cristiano Ronaldo a rather blink and you’ll miss it send-off – with an 81-word segment found in their matchday programme.

The piece, in the ‘Worth Knowing’ feature of the United Review programme, said: “Cristiano Ronaldo left the club by mutual agreement last month.

“The Portuguese superstar scored 145 goals across two spells and 436 appearances, and helped us win three Premier League titles, one FA Cup, two League Cups, the Champions League and the FIFA Club World Cup. Ronaldo was also crowned Ballon d’Or winner in 2008.

“In a statement on November 22, the club put on record its gratitude for Cristiano’s immense contribution and wished him and his family well for the future.”

Erik ten Hag hasn’t reference Ronaldo’s exit at all in his programme notes and wants to move on from the saga.

The manager, who Ronaldo said he did not respect in his TalkTV interview, was also asked about the Portugal international following the Carabao Cup win over Burnley.

He said: “I gave you all the opportunity, many of you were in Spain.

“We made the statement, we look to the future.”

This is what fans had to say as Man Utd fans make their feelings of Cristiano Ronaldo clear with a new chant vs Burnley…

@SlasherTrash: FFS, I’m embarrassed and ashamed to be a fan sometimes.

@PadCelBlu: Imagine singing this about a club legend lmao

@HawkusMaximus: The pathetic chant of fans who got dumped by their hero and are now irrelevant

@RyaanKnowsBall: this is just sad, fans are forgetting we wouldn’t of even made europa league without him last season! he bailed us out so many times. The 🐐

@_solodivine: How is it sad? He disrespected the club and the fans

@Leeds_Untied: 😂 they’re a tragic bunch over them there Pennines aren’t they

@ScottRobbo_12: Pathetic fanbase but what do you expect from people who chant Glazers Out whilst funding them every week? 🤡🤡

@MUFCEngineer: The fans have a right to say, chant and express their opinions. I just hope that in time, we can appreciate Cristiano for what he did for the club in his first stint under Fergie and for what he did for us last season.

@StretfordReds4: I didn’t really like that Ronaldo chant last night. Yes, what he did was wrong. Yes, the club is bigger than any player that has ever set foot in it. You don’t have to respect Ronaldo for what he’s done for the club but I also feel we shouldn’t be ‘anti-Ronaldo’ #mufc
