On Wednesday night, Ronaldo left the bench and walked down the tunnel in the 89th minute while Manchester United was leading Tottenham by two goals to nil. The forward is claimed to have briefly gone into the dressing room before leaving Old Trafford.
Speaking afterwards, Ten Hag said that he would ‘deal with’ the issue on Thursday. And just before 6pm this evening, United released a statement confirming that Ronaldo had been axed from the United squad to face Chelsea this weekend.
Alex Ferguson who convinced Ronaldo to stay at Old trafford has condemn Erik Ten Hag’s decision.
He claims Manchester United would have allow Ronaldo to leave if he wasn’t part of the team plan rather than lure him to convince Ronaldo to stay.
He has sent the board a request which is still unknown to the public but pundits believe it’s a letter requesting for the sack of Erik Ten Hag considering the way he treats the Manchester United legend.
