That’s awkward! Cristiano Ronaldo gatecrashes Sky Sports’ pre-match chat to greet Gary Neville and Roy Keane JUST as they’re discussing his future… with Jamie Carragher ‘totally blanked’ by Man United star after saying he expects him to leave

  • Cristiano Ronaldo made an unexpected appearance on Monday Night Football
  • The Portuguese star spoke to former teammates Gary Neville and Roy Keane 
  • However, he ignored pundit Jamie Carragher – to the delight of the panel of stars
  • Ronaldo was named on the bench for Manchester United’s clash with Liverpool 

Cristiano Ronaldo gatecrashed the Sky Sports pundits pitchside before Manchester United’s match with Liverpool – and elected to ignore Jamie Carragher.

Ronaldo, who was named among the substitutes for the important bottom half clash, came across to speak to former teammates Gary Neville and Roy Keane, both part of the Sky line-up for Monday Night Football.

The Portuguese star, who has reportedly said he wants to leave Old Trafford in the transfer window, came across to Neville as Keane said ‘We need to see him out there doing his best.’

Cristiano Ronaldo spoke to Sky’s ex-Manchester United pundits, but ignored Jamie Carragher 

Keane then added: ‘I’m glad you’re listening to me.’

Sky host David Jones said ‘The main man is here tonight’, but was unable to get Cristiano to stop for a word on camera, as the 37-year-old went back to his warm-up, after a quick embrace with the Irishman.

Jones then said of the bizarre encounter: ‘Nice conversation with you, Jamie’, to which Carragher responded: ‘He totally blanked me!’

‘Just like most people do,’ Jones was quick to retort, leaving the panel in stitches.

Former Liverpool man Carragher previously said he thinks Ronaldo will leave within two weeks

Earlier, commenting on Erik ten Hag’s decision to leave Ronaldo and Harry Maguire out of his starting 11 for the Liverpool match, Carragher said: ‘Those two will be really disappointed. Maybe Maguire just needs to come out of the firing line.

‘If I’m being honest, I don’t think ten Hag wants Ronaldo around the place. As soon as he’s got options, he’s put him on the bench. In two weeks time, I think he’ll be gone.’

United continue to hunt down players who want to be part of their rebuild at Old Trafford, while Ronaldo seeks to play Champions League football elsewhere after a turbulent year back in Manchester. 

Casemiro was unveiled to fans at the match, with his £70m move from Real Madrid confirmed, making the Brazilian the latest new recruit to ten Hag’s plan at United.
