In the first half of the interview which aired on Wednesday Ronaldo described his shock at the club’s stagnation since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure in 2013.

He also spoke of his surprise at the club appointing Ralf Rangnick on an interim basis – revealing he had never even heard of the German.

Ronaldo went on to criticise the Glazers and accused the American owners of not caring about the club.

He said: “The Glazers, they don’t — they don’t care about, about the club. I mean, professional sport.

“As you know this, Manchester is a marketing club. They will get its money from the marketing, the sport, it’s . . . they don’t really care, in my opinion.”

Asked: “Do you ever talk to them, the Glazers?”, Ronaldo replied “Never. No. They give all the power to the president, sporting director.”
