Ten Hague says Ronaldo refused to come as a substitute for United

MANCHESTER, England – Cristiano Ronaldo has been ruled out as a substitute in Manchester United’s 2-0 win over Tottenham in the Premier League, United manager Erik Ten Hague said on Friday.

Ronaldo walked into the locker room before the final whistle of Wednesday’s game at Old Trafford in protest and has since been left out of United’s squad to play Chelsea on Saturday.

Ten Hague spoke to Ronaldo on Friday and said the Portugal striker “remains an important part of the team.”

However, Ten Hague said Ronaldo must be disciplined for the culture in the team, before criticizing the player and some of his teammates for leaving a pre-season friendly against Rio de Janeiro in early July.

“I have to set standards and values, and control them,” said Ten Hague.

“I warned at the beginning of the season, and next time there should be consequences. Otherwise, when you live together, when you play together – and football is a team sport – you have to meet certain standards and I have to Control it.

37-year-old Ronaldo took to social media late on Thursday to explain his behavior in the Tottenham game.

“I have always tried to be an example to the youth who have developed in all the teams I have represented,” Ronaldo wrote on Instagram. “Unfortunately this is not always possible and sometimes the heat of the moment gets the best of us.”

Ronaldo trained away from the first team on Friday.
