Cristiano Ronaldo could have landed himself in hot water with Manchester United head coach Erik ten Hag after refusing to come on as a substitute during the win over Tottenham, according to reports. The Portuguese superstar is already facing a possible fine for leaving the pitch by storming down the tunnel before the final whistle and his actions have prompted fury around in the incident.
The 37-year-old was named on the bench once again by Ten Hag for the crucial fixture at Old Trafford and cut a frustrated figure as he watched his team-mates grab a deserved 2-0 victory thanks to goals from Fred and Bruno Fernandes.
And it is clear he took exception to being left out by the Dutchman after a report from The Daily Mail’s Chris Wheeler claimed he refused to come on as a substitute in the second half.
Fans then noticed that Ronaldo threw a strop as he walked towards the tunnel in the corner of Old Trafford before the 90th minute had passed, and it later emerged the Portuguese left the stadium altogether while his team-mates celebrated their win in the dressing room.
