Karma is a funny thing. It’s a concept that has been around for centuries, and it’s one that many people believe in. It’s the idea that what goes around comes around, and that if you do something bad, it will eventually come back to haunt you.
This week, Piers Morgan took a brutal swipe at Manchester United over their decision to sell Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid in 2009. After Liverpool’s emphatic 4-0 win over United in the English Premier League, Morgan took to Twitter to point out the irony of the situation.
“Karma’s a funny thing,” he wrote. “Man Utd sold Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid in 2009. Now they’re paying the price.”
The tweet was met with a mixed reaction, with some people agreeing with Morgan’s sentiment and others pointing out that United had won the Premier League title the season before Ronaldo left.
Regardless of the debate, it’s clear that Morgan believes that United’s decision to sell Ronaldo has come back to haunt them. After all, Ronaldo has gone on to become one of the greatest players of all time, winning four Champions League titles and five Ballon d’Or awards since his move to Madrid.
Meanwhile, United have struggled to replicate the success they enjoyed during Ronaldo’s time at the club. They have failed to win the Premier League title since his departure, and have only won the FA Cup once in the last decade.
It’s easy to see why Morgan believes that United are paying the price for selling Ronaldo. He may be right, but it’s also worth noting that United have made some questionable decisions in the transfer market since then.
Whether it’s the signing of Angel Di Maria or the decision to let Paul Pogba leave for Juventus, United have made some questionable decisions in the transfer market.
Ultimately, it’s impossible to know whether United would have been better off if they had kept Ronaldo. What we do know is that Morgan believes that karma has come back to haunt them, and that’s why he took the opportunity to take a swipe at them after Liverpool’s win.
