Cristiano Ronaldo explains why he left Manchester United vs Tottenham early

Cristiano Ronaldo has give his reasoning for leaving Manchester United vs Tottenham early.

Ronaldo began the season on the fringes of the Manchester United squad after spending the summer trying to leave Old Trafford in order to protect his Champions League record from Lionel Messi.

He was then slowly integrated back into the squad before refusing to come on vs Tottenham and leaving the ground early.

This led to Ronaldo being forced to train with the under-21s, but he was again welcomed back into the hold by Ten Hag.

Now though, Ronaldo has explained why he left the ground early:

“It’s something that I regret to leave from the stadium vs Tottenham — but in the same way I felt provoked by Erik ten Hag.

“Not allowed for me, a coach to put me in three minutes in a game. Sorry, I’m not that kind of player.”

On the suspension that followed his walkout, Ronaldo added: “I was very, very disappointed for the communication of Manchester United. To be honest, I never had a problem with any club, with any coach.

“They suspended me three days... I felt it was a lot.”

After all of his recent comments, Ronaldo is not expected to return to Old Trafford in December and will likely push for a move in January. But what team would be willing to pay his wages remains to be seen.
