Cristiano Ronaldo stirs up trouble again in Manchester United’s win over Tottenham. Coach Erik ten Hag has already reacted.
Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo caused trouble again in Manchester United’s 2-0 win in the top Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday night.
After the 37-year-old spent the evening on the bench again, Ronaldo rushed into the dressing room before the game was over – although United could have made two more substitutions.
Coach Erik ten Hag explained after the game: “I didn’t pay attention to that. We’ll take care of it tomorrow. Today the focus was on a great performance by the whole team.”
“Sorry, but that’s unacceptable. It’s so pathetic,” commented Gary Lineker on the situation. And Alan Shearer also criticized Ronaldo for his behavior primevideo: “I understand his anger, but if you look at the bigger picture, his team put on a really good performance. The manager had a big decision to make and he was right.”
And United legend Peter Schmeichel also spoke up: “It’s the first time that I’ve been disappointed in him. Normally I stand behind him, I understand his situation.”
The next duel for the Red Devils is on Saturday evening at Chelsea, but this action should not have increased CR7’s chances of starting eleven. The Portuguese could also be suspended as this was not his first offense under ten Hag.
Manchester United: CR7 already gone in winter?
The Portuguese has since become a substitute under ten Hag and has only played the full 90 minutes in ten Premier League games this season.
An early farewell in winter is therefore becoming more and more likely, also because there has probably been a change of heart at ten Hag and Ronaldo is said to be anything but satisfied with the Dutchman.
Ronaldo’s contract with Manchester United runs until the summer of 2023.
