Manager Erik ten Hag has branded Cristiano Ronaldo’s decision to leave Old Trafford during Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with Rayo Vallecano as “unacceptable.”
Ronaldo started the match but was substituted at half-time. He was pictured leaving the stadium before the full-time whistle.
Diogo Dalot was also pictured leaving at the same time, although he was not in the match squad having played against Atletico Madrid in Oslo 24 hours earlier.
Speaking at a media day at Carrington on Tuesday, Ten Hag was asked about players leaving early.
He told Viaplay Sport Netherlands:
It is unacceptable for everyone. I am telling them it’s unacceptable. We are a team. A squad. Until the end we stay together.
