Rio Ferdinand, a legendary member of Manchester United, has made fun of the team over the rumored £1 million fine that veteran forward Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to receive as a result of his interview with renowned presenter Piers Morgan.
Ronaldo recently criticized Manchester United and their manager, Erik ten Hag, in an explosive interview that was published on Sunday night.
The Portuguese international criticized the club hierarchy for the ineffective management of the Old Trafford team and claimed he has no respect for the Dutch manager.
On Monday, it was reported that Ronaldo would pay a fine equal to two weeks' worth of pay, or roughly £1 million.
Given Ronaldo's wealth, Rio Ferdinand, a former England and Manchester United defender, believes that such a penalty will hardly be felt.
“I’ve just seen by the way that they reckon Ronaldo has been fined £1million, that’s what they’re saying. "But that’s two weeks’ wages,” Ferdinand told Vibe with FIVE.
“What he’s doing right, he’s actually picking up one of his sofa pillows and just gonna go [licks fingers and does flicking motion] dust, and just be doing that for a couple of minutes.
“You think that’s going to touch the sides?" You think £1milllion is going to touch the sides with this guy? Come on, man.
“But that’s all they can do, two weeks’ wages.”
Ronaldo has since joined up with his Portugal team-mates ahead of their friendly match against Nigeria on Thursday before their World Cup Group H opener against Ghana in Qatar a week later.
