Former Chelsea man Jason Cundy has said that he feels sorry for Cristiano Ronaldo.
He also advised those criticizing the former Manchester United star to make more of an effort to see things from the 37-year-old’s perspective.
Recent months have been very unfamiliar territory for the football icon, leading to his struggle for game time at Manchester United, and now his country no longer sees him as their main man.
He was recently sacked by Manchester United after his explosive interview with Piers Morgan on TalkTV.
Many pundits, including Ronaldo’s former teammates at Manchester United, have been critical of the football icon, but Cundy is urging them to think deeper when analyzing what’s looking like the decline of an iconic player.
“There’s a lot that gets said about Ronaldo lately, and I think the guy needs a little bit of a break,” Cundy told talkSPORT.
Cundy feels that Cristiano Ronaldo sees himself differently than people see him, adding that the Portugal captain is almost superhuman.
“He is like Superman finding out that he can’t fly anymore, but he believes he can,” he added, saying that it is impossible to tell what it is like to be Ronaldo.
According to the Chelsea legend, people should understand that the former Real Madrid and Juventus superstar does not see the demise he is going through.
“I feel sorry for him... "I have a lot of sympathy for him,” he added.
“Everyone’s talking about the demise of Ronaldo." "We know that; we can see it with our own eyes, but he can’t face it.”
