Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has opened up on Cristiano Ronaldo’s late strop in the club’s 2-0 win over Tottenham on Wednesday night. Goals from Fred and Bruno Fernandes gave the Red Devils all three points. But their No 7 was far from happy and stormed down the tunnel in the closing stages of the contest.
Manchester United were too good for Tottenham in their Premier League clash on Wednesday.
Fred opened the scoring shortly after the interval, with the Brazil international’s deflected strike trickling past Hugo Lloris and into the net.
And Fernandes then made the result safe towards the end, with the Portugal international scoring a stunner to get the home crowd going.
One person who missed the final moments of the contest, however, was Ronaldo.
The veteran stormed down the tunnel after being snubbed by Ten Hag, who chose to introduce Antony Elanga instead.

And the United boss has now claimed he will ‘deal’ with the forward, suggesting he didn’t give him the green light to depart proceedings.
“I was there, I did see him but I haven’t spoke to him,” the 52-year-old told Amazon Prime.
“I will deal with that tomorrow, we are celebrating this victory and now we have to recover from this on Saturday against Chelsea, another big game and that’s what makes the Premier League so exciting.”
On his side’s performance, he said: “I think we performed better against Liverpool and Arsenal.
“I think you see today we developed and you can see in the last weeks we are growing in the season and becoming more proactive in and out of possession.
