Ronaldo: 'I spoke with the director and they didn't believe my daughter was sick. Man United doubted my words'

“I had a very bad pre-season,” said Cristiano Ronaldo in part two of his explosive interview with Piers Morgan.

“I had some problems on vacation, where one of my children had broncitus.

“I was in Majorca and she [Bella] had to spend one week in hospital. People made up stories that I wanted to go and travel.

“People need to realise that I am a human being and want to be with my family.

“I am a human being and travelled through difficult moments. I spoke with the director and president of [Manchester] United and they kind of didn’t believe that something was going wrong.

“I am never going to swap my family’s health for football. Never. That really hurt me. They [United] doubted my words.

“We had one week in hospital because of Bella’s problems. I didn’t go to pre-season because of that. It was not fair to leave my family for pre-season.”

Ronaldo wished to leave United over the summer but was unable to do so. He then didn’t show up for pre-season training, which is when his daughter was sick.
