Manchester United could ‘terminate Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract’ because his explosive interview caused a ‘material breach of duty of confidence’
Manchester United may want to terminate Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract after his explosive interview with Piers Morgan.
In excerpts from Ronaldo’s interview with Piers Morgan, Ronaldo accused the club of ‘betraying’ him and lambasted the manager Erik ten Hag, adding he doesn’t ‘respect’ the Dutchman. He also criticized his former teammate, Wayne Rooney for his constant criticism.
Sports litigation and barrister David Seligman has taken to Twitter to say United may have the right to terminate Ronaldo’s contract due to a ‘material breach of implied duty of confidence’.
According to him, the 37-year-old could be fired because United (the employer) have lost faith in Ronaldo (the employee) to such an extent that it is not possible for him to return to work.
His now-deleted Tweet read: “After this interview, Man United would likely have cause to terminate Ronaldo’s contract – material breach of implied duty of confidence and trust as well as express terms regarding discrediting the club.”
