Manchester United make a decision on Cristiano Ronaldo

After the victory, Manchester United spoke about Cristiano Ronaldo’s attitude in the duel against Tottenham; player went to the changing rooms before the final whistle

O Manchester United decided to move away Cristiano Ronaldo of the confrontation against Chelsea, next weekend, for the Premier League. Last Wednesday, the 19th, the Portuguese ace abandoned the victory over tottenham before the final whistle. This was a punitive measure by the English club.

In a note, United announced the decision after the attitude of shirt 7: “Cristiano Ronaldo will not be part of Manchester United’s squad for Saturday’s Premier League game against Chelsea. The rest of the squad is fully focused on preparing for this game.”

Without entering the field in this Wednesday’s duel, Cristiano Ronaldo went to the locker rooms a few minutes before the final whistle. The Portuguese striker was once again not taken advantage of by coach Erik ten Hag, who preferred to avoid another controversy with shirt 7.

At Old Trafford, United beat Spurs 2-0, with goals from Fred and Bruno Fernandes. In the 44th minute of the second half, which had four added time, Cristiano left the bench and went to the changing rooms of the stadium, as captured in the official broadcast of the match.

I’ll deal with it tomorrow. Today I will celebrate that victory”, said Ten Hag in an interview with “Prime Video Sport”, from England, after the confrontation. The coach made three substitutions during the match.

“Today I don’t pay attention to it, we deal with it tomorrow. I want to focus on this team, it was a magnificent display by the 11 players. Or rather, let me correct myself, it was a good performance by the replacements that came in. A team performance reaffirmed the Dutchman at a press conference.

In the 6-3 defeat in the derby against Manchester City, CR7 also had no minutes in the derby, and Ten Hag justified that the choice to keep him on the bench was made out of respect for the Portuguese player’s career.
