Ronaldo stormed down the tunnel before full-time and was subsequently left out of the matchday squad for Chelsea the following weekend.

And in a sit-down interview with SunSport columnist and TalkTV main man Piers Morgan, in which Ronaldo blasted United as well as past and present figures, the legendary forward revealed his son’s reaction to the suspension.

He told Piers: “I think it was a strategy from the club for me to react that way.

” I was very, very, very, very disappointed for the communication of Manchester United.

“To be honest, I never had a problem with any club, with any coach. And they suspend me three days, which I felt it was a lot – and the level of sport, clubs, I felt a lot. It was a shame, that.

“I think it was (humiliating).

“But I remember arriving home and Cristiano (Junior) see me and say ‘Daddy do not go to the game?’ I say ‘No, because the club punish me with three days’.

“And he did like *laughs* ‘How they’re going to punish you if you are the best player in the world and you’re not gonna play?’

“I said ‘No I’m not gonna play because I have not been behave’. And he look at me like, ‘My Daddy not be behave, what?’

“In one way, I was good because I was like, more relaxed, but in the same way, I feel very disappointed because, okay, I regret, I apologise, I’m not perfect, I made a mistake.

“But suspend me three games, for that, I think it’s too much. And then they make fire for the press, which is really disappoint me.”

Whether Ronaldo can continue at United past the World Cup is yet to be seen.

His contract is up in the summer and he can walk out of Old Trafford on a free transfer.

One destination Ronaldo would be open to is Paris Saint-Germain, where he would link up with long-time rival Lionel Messi, who has seven Ballon d’Ors.

Ronaldo said on PSG: “It’s… everything is possible in football.

“Why not? For sure. They will sell a lot of shirts.”

And Ronaldo showered Messi with compliments in his interview.

He added: “Amazing. Player is magic – top.

“As a person, we share the stage 16 years, imagine, 16 years. We share.

“I have great relationship with him. I’m not friend of him in terms of what I mean friend is, the guy who was with you in your house. Speaking of phone. No, but he’s like a team-mate.

“It’s a guy that I really respect, the way he always speaks about me.
