Yesterday’s interview and outbursts by Christiano Ronaldo against his team, Manchester United and its officials, has come as a very unusual revelation by a current player against any club.
Lawyers that specialize in football contracts, have come to the conclusion that Ronaldo could have played his last game for the club, and could have his contract terminated.
Football lawyer, Robert Seligman says there are grounds for the termination of the contract on account of material breach of implied trust and confidence and also bringing the club into disrepute.
Manchester United could terminate Ronaldo’s contract and still retain his player registration, effectively prohibiting him from playing for another club.
It is clear now that no big club would take on Ronaldo after this debacle. He has become a pariah in world football.
