Jack Wilshere says Mikel Arteta would not have Cristiano Ronaldo at Arsenal despite Piers Morgan saying Manchester United striker would be ‘perfect’

    Sorry, Piers, Cristiano Ronaldo probably won’t be heading to Arsenal if he does indeed head for the Manchester United exit.

    Ronaldo has given a bombshell interview to TalkTV host Piers Morgan in which he took aim at manager Erik ten Hag and the club’s hierarchy.

    Morgan spoke exclusively to Ronaldo and believes he should sign for Arsenal

    It seems unlikely he will ever play for the club again, with more revelations set to come when the full 90 minute interview airs on Wednesday and Thursday.

    Arsenal fan Morgan has been badgering Ronaldo to join the north London club, even presenting him with a Gunners club shirt with his name and number 7 on the back in a previous interview.

    When speaking to talkSPORT Breakfast on Monday, the TalkTV host said he believed the 37-year-old would be perfect for the Gunners to help the table toppers get over the line and win the Premier League.

    However, Arsenal hero

    Wilshere doesn’t think that is going to happen. Wilshere, who currently coaches the Under-18s, believes manager Mikel Arteta simply wouldn’t have him.

    Speaking generally about clubs signing Ronaldo, Wilshere told talkSPORT Drive: “I still think he would bring something for the younger players to look at, see how he lives and see how he does things. I still think there’s a benefit to have him.”

    Host Darren Bent added: “You wouldn’t take him at Arsenal though, no chance. With what Arteta is building now at Arsenal, you wouldn’t take him.”

    Wilshere: “I don’t think Mikel would have him. No [I wouldn’t have him either].”

    Bent: “You can’t have him at Arsenal, you just got rid of Aubameyang.”

    Wilshere: “Obviously what he has done is bad, but he doesn’t have a track record of that. He stayed at Madrid for years.”

    Arteta has fired Arsenal to the top of the table, but probably would not want Ronaldo

    Erik ten Hag has already had to discipline Ronaldo this season for refusing to come on against Tottenham before walking down the tunnel before the game finished.

    He was dropped from the squad for one game before making a return, before then even captaining the team against Aston Villa in the Premier League.

    That was before this interview came to light and Bent believes Ten Hag would be the ‘weakest’ manager in Premier League history if he allows him back.

    Former striker Bent said: “He said he doesn’t respect him, any manager in any given situation has a right to pick and choose who he wants to play and who he doesn’t.

    “If he feels Ronaldo is good enough to be in the side, he’ll pick him. If he doesn’t then he won’t, 

    “If he was to allow Ronaldo back into that dressing room after what he’s done with the stomping down the tunnel and then let him back in with the armband and was supposed to be the leader.

    “If he lets him back in now, he will be the weakest manager in Premier League history. You cannot allow players to run amuck. I get he’s one of the greatest we’ve ever seen, but we’ve seen other greats conduct themselves better than Ronaldo has.

    “It’s not all about him, it’s about Manchester United football club.”
