Manchester United left red-faced after including Cristiano Ronaldo in 2023 calendar

Manchester United have made a huge blunder by placing ex-attacker Cristiano Ronaldo on the January segment of the 2023 club calendar.

  • Ronaldo features in January of club calendar
  • Striker left United after messy Morgan interview
  • Now plays in Saudi Arabia for Al-Nassr

WHAT HAPPENED? As is tradition, United released a club calendar for the year with each month featuring a different player. It can be somewhat of a lottery with players being able to move throughout the year. This opens up the possibility of having players feature who leave the club mid-season. United just so happened to place Ronaldo in January, a slightly awkward mix-up since he left the club in November.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Ronaldo left the club after a stunning interview with Piers Morgan where he attacked the clubs hierarchy including the owners, the Glazer family and manager Erik ten Hag. His contract was mutually terminated and he has since signed for Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr who are currently top of the Saudi Pro League.

WHAT NEXT FOR RONALDO? Al-Nassr next play on January 5, but it may come too soon for Ronaldo to make his debut. He is more likely to make his bow on January 14 against Al-Shabab.
