Cristiano Ronaldo out of Manchester United squad after stalking down tunnel before end of game

Cristiano Ronaldo will not play for Manchester United against Chelsea this weekend, and has reportedly been told to train alone after stalking down an Old Trafford tunnel and leaving the stadium before Wednesday’s match against Tottenham had finished. 안전놀이터

As United wrapped up a 2-0 win, Ronaldo trudged away from the bench in the 90th minute after reportedly refusing to enter as a late-game substitute. United, at the time, had two substitutions remaining.

When his teammates returned to the locker room to celebrate, Ronaldo was reportedly nowhere to be found, having left Old Trafford entirely.

His apparent petulance distracted from one of United’s most impressive performances of the season. Afterward, when asked about Ronaldo, manager Erik Ten Hag said he’d “deal with that tomorrow.”

On Thursday, Ronaldo was separated from the rest of United’s players at training, according to a report from The Athletic. United then announced that “Ronaldo will not be part of the Manchester United squad for this Saturday’s Premier League game against Chelsea.”

“The rest of the squad is fully focused on preparing for that fixture,” the club said in a two-sentence statement.
