Full Story

A Twitter user @Utdtruthful tweeted on Friday, November 18, 2022, that Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo has been ousted as a legend in the team. The tweet has received over 6,000 likes, over 400 retweets, and over 200 quote retweets. The user said, “Breaking: Cristiano Ronaldo is no longer in the Manchester United Legends list.”

This tweet has become necessary to fact-check due to the recent interview Ronaldo had with Piers Morgan, a British broadcast journalist. The interview sparked a lot of controversies due to some allegations Ronaldo made.

Manchester United has also reacted on its website, and social media handles, indicating that the “club is taking appropriate steps in response to Cristiano Ronaldo’s recent media interview.”


The game of football is full of legends. Many individuals have garnered the attention necessary to elevate them from popular players to legendary status over the course of their history in sports. People like these have those fleeting moments of brilliance that last a lifetime. 

Long after their deaths, stories are told about such individuals. Beyond scoring goals, these individuals have left their mark on the game, qualifying them as legends. 

Manchester United’s legends list is in two categories. There is the top scorer and the top appearance section. The top appearance and top scorer sections all have 25 players each. When DUBAWA surfed through the list, we discovered that Cristiano Ronaldo is part of the top scorer section. He is positioned between David Nerd and Tommy Taylor.
