Arturo Vidal Criticizes Erik Ten Hag for Treatment of Cristiano Ronaldo


Chilean Arturo Vidal, a player for Brazilian football team Atlético Paranaense, has criticized Dutchman Erik Ten Hag for his treatment of Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo while he was at Manchester United.

Ronaldo’s Departure from Manchester United

Ronaldo left Manchester United in January last year after problems with Erik Ten Hag and his statements confirmed that life at the English club had become very difficult.

Vidal’s Criticism of Erik Ten Hag

Vidal, in statements to Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper, said: “This manager came to Manchester United badly. How can you get Cristiano Ronaldo and get rid of him?”

He added: “These are bald men. I always find that bald men are very complex. You have the best scorer in football and you take him off the field and put him on the bench.”

Accusations Against “Bald” Coaches

Vidal’s accusations against “bald” coaches stem from the period he spent under “bald” Argentine coach Jorge Sampaoli at Brazilian club Flamengo last season.

Arturo Vidal’s Experience with “Bald” Coach Sampaoli

Arturo Vidal, 36, won the Copa Libertadores and the Copa do Brasil during his season with Flamengo, but appeared in just 21 matches and was often ignored by the Argentine coach.

Further Criticism of “Bald” Coach Sampaoli

In his first appearance for Atlético Paranaense, Vidal criticized the “bald” coach Sampaoli, calling him a “loser” and accusing him of not valuing his players.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s Return and Departure

Notably, Cristiano Ronaldo returned to Manchester United in the summer of 2021 from Italian side Juventus and became the Red Devils’ top scorer in his first season, while scoring once in the English Premier League the following season, with the arrival of Ten Hag, before he left a few months later. It was only since the start of that season that the 38-year-old star joined Saudi Arabian club Al Nasr.
