Ronaldo tunnel

Manchester United striker, Cristiano Ronaldo, has been criticised for heading to the tunnel before the club’s clash with Tottenham ended in the Premier League on Wednesday.

Two goals from Bruno Fernandes held United beat Spurs at Old Trafford.

Ronaldo was kept on the bench for the game with the hope of coming on as a substitute.

However,k before the end of the game, the camera pictured the 37-year-old walking down the tunnel in a frustrated manner.

Speaking after the game, manager Erik Ten Hag told Amazon, “I will deal with that tomorrow, not today.

“We are celebrating this victory.”

He continued, “We are building for the future, but the future is tonight,” the United boss told Amazon.

“You pick the line-up that you think has the most chance to win, and you have a game plan. Cristiano [Ronaldo] is an important player and he can make the goal.

“I have to deal with all the players’ expectations and I have to deal with developing this team. You have to make a game plan.

“This is a good Tottenham team, a compact, a transition team with high intensity and I think this is the best way to start like this. You get more runs behind, more dynamic up front.”

On his part, former EPL player, Danny Mills, described Ronaldo’s action as a disgrace.

Mills told Sky Sports: “It’s a little bit of a selfish act to go, ‘oh actually I’m not involved’, he knows full well that everybody’s going to see it.

“You know what it’s like at Old Trafford, you’ve got to walk all the way down the touchline, not just sneaking down at the halfway line. He knows everyone’s going to watch him.

“And I feel sorry for United now, and Ten Hag because that’s an outstanding result against a top side and all it’s going to be about is Ronaldo.

“It’s an absolute disgrace, I think it’s incredibly disrespectful to the team, to the manager, to the fans.

“They were winning 2-0, what complaint can he have? If they were losing 2-0 it still wouldn’t be right, but I would sort of understand it. He clearly thinks he’s bigger than the football club.”
