Recall that during the Manchester United and Tottenham match yesterday, Cristiano Ronaldo walked straight down the tunnel with four minutes still to play. This was obviously because the coach did not use him.
Meanwhile, the game ended 2 zero to n favour of Man United, and it’s perhaps the best United game this season so far. Below is the official statement from Manchester United.
“Cristiano will not be part of the Man United team for this Saturday’s game against Chelsea. The rest of the squad is fully focused on preparing for that fixture”.
Speaking after the match, the United manager said that he would “deal” with Ronaldo following his early exit and Ten Hag has now made the decision that the 37-year-old will not be part of the his plans ahead of the trip to Stamford Bridge.
