Ronaldo Refused To Come On As Sub, Says Man Utd Boss Ten Hag


(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag confirmed on Friday that Cristiano Ronaldo refused to come on as a substitute during this week’s win against Tottenham, saying there had to be “consequences” for his behaviour.

Ronaldo headed down the tunnel before the final whistle and made a hasty departure from Old Trafford.

United announced on Thursday that the forward had been dropped from the squad for Saturday’s clash with Chelsea following his tantrum.

Asked at his pre-match press conference whether Ronaldo had refused to come on a substitute against Spurs, Ten Hag said: “Yes.”

Ten Hag said: “What (happened in) the talk is between Cristiano and me. The (club) statement is also clear, I think.”

Ronaldo responded to his omission from the squad by saying he had acted in the heat of the moment.



“I’ve always tried to set the example myself for the youngsters that grew in all the teams that I’ve represented,” he posted on Instagram on Thursday.

“Unfortunately that’s not always possible and sometimes the heat of the moment gets the best of us.

“Right now, I just feel that I have to keep working hard in Carrington, support my teammates and be ready for everything in any given game.

“Giving in to the pressure is not an option. It never was. This is Manchester United, and united we must stand. Soon we’ll be together again.” says Ronaldo
