Former Manchester United defender, Gary Neville, has advised the club to “end the relationship” with Cristiano Ronaldo this week.
Ronaldo was dropped by Erik ten Hag for their 1-1 draw at Chelsea after refusing to come on as a late substitute against Tottenham.
The 37-year-old left early during Wednesday’s victory, having walked out before half-time during a pre-season friendly against Rayo Vallecano.
“End it this week or create a truce to get to the World Cup and then end it. Because this has to end,” said Neville.
And during a heated debate on Sky Sports with former United captain Roy Keane, Neville argued: “There aren’t many Manchester United fans who would now have Ronaldo in their starting eleven.
“They are better without him – they score more goals without him and they win more points without him. Manchester United are a better team without him.”
