Virat Kohli reacts to Kevin Pietersen’s statement on Ronaldo’s Manchester United row
The relationship between Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United is over after it became quite bitter since the Red Devils manager Erik Ten Hag sidelined the iconic striker for the Premier League match against Chelsea. Ronaldo then lashed out at Ten Hag during a bombshell interview with popular British broadcaster Piers Morgan. Additionally, he criticised the Glazer family, his former United teammate Wayne Rooney, and defender Garry Neville.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner slammed Manchester United executives for lacking compassion when he failed to arrive on time for the preseason training session due to his daughter’s illness. Since the news broke out, it gave rise to several questions regarding the internal scenario of the club.

Kohli is known to be a huge supporter of Ronaldo. This time, he hit the ‘like’ button on Pietersen’s statement, showing his support for the Portugal captain.
Pietersen stated in the interview, “If what he said is true about them not believing what’s been happening with this family, I can’t say whether it’s true or not, he says it is true, that’s almost unforgivable. He is a human at the end of the day, yes he’s super famous, yes he’s worth hundreds of millions of dollars, he’s achieved it because he’s amazing at what he does.”
On Tuesday, Manchester United announced the departure of Ronaldo from the team. Taking to their official Twitter handle, the club revealed that the striker would leave Old Trafford for the second time. However, they also mentioned the agreement was mutual.
