‘It affects us’ – Manchester United star breaks silence on Cristiano Ronaldo interview

Manchester United centre-back Raphael Varane has revealed Cristiano Ronaldo’s controversial interview with Piers Morgan has affected the dressing room.

Varane spoke to French radio station Europe1 about the situation, saying: “Obviously it affects us. We follow what is happening and what is being said.

“We try to calm the situation in our own way, we try not to get too involved in it. When it’s a star like Cristiano Ronaldo, even more, so we try to take it with distance, that is to say that we do not try to change the situation alone, we are part of a collective.

“What I want is the best for my team so whatever the decision, as a player, we will accept it and give the best of ourselves.”
