Cristiano Ronaldo may have left Manchester United – but his new watch appears to be making one final dig at the Red Devils.
Ronaldo has come under intense scrutiny in recent weeks following an interview he gave to Piers Morgan in which he took aim at his employers and said he felt ‘betrayed’ by his treatment since his death. return to Old Trafford.
Last summer, the Portuguese joined the club he originally played for between 2003 and 2009, leaving Juventus to make their long-awaited return to English football. He scored twice on his second home debut against Newcastle United, but shortly after his second spell at the club, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – his former team-mate and the manager who brought him back to the club – was sacked.
Now 37, Ronaldo struggled to break into the team under new boss Erik ten Hag, with the Portuguese claiming he didn’t ‘respect’ his new manager. He also slammed some of the club’s players with a less than professional attitude – and claimed he didn’t regret the interview he gave.
On the same day as his split from United, however, Ronaldo opted to launch a new watch.
Eagle-eyed fans noticed, however, that CR7’s goal against the Red Devils at Real Madrid was used as the basis of the clock face. Talk about rubbing salt into wounds.
The watch launch follows Vincent Kompany trailing the striker in turn, saying he wouldn’t take him to Burnley because he ‘doesn’t run’.
The Jacob & Co watch sells for $145,000.
