I love Manchester United and I love the fans, that will never ever change. However, it feels like the right time for me to seek a new challenge. "I wish the team every success for the remainder of the season and for the future.” Keane has now had his say on the news, as the former United captain once again defended Ronaldo, claiming that Erik ten Hag should not have used the 37-year-old as a substitute. He told ITV: "I think it was on the cards for the last few months, the interview was the tipping point for him. But that’s it, life goes on, Manchester United are a great club, Cristiano Ronaldo is a great player.
