Erik ten Hag, fuming about Cristiano Ronaldo’s decision to depart Old Trafford before the conclusion of Man United’s final friendly, says: “It is intolerable for everyone.”

After Cristiano Ronaldo left Old Trafford before the conclusion of Manchester United’s most recent friendly, manager Erik ten Hag deemed the striker’s actions “inappropriate.”


After their friendly match against Rayo Vallecano ended in a 1-1 draw, United had openly said that they had no objections to the forward leaving Old Trafford early.

The wantaway Portuguese superstar had played the first 45 minutes of the game before he was substituted and replaced at the break by Amad Diallo off by manager Erik ten Hag at half-time.



The 37-year-old wasn’t the only player to make an early departure on Sunday and Ten Hag isn’t impressed.



Speaking about the incident, Ten Hag told AD: ‘I certainly don’t condone this. This is unacceptable. For everyone. We are a team and you have to stay until the end.’ 



He was replaced at the break by Amad Diallo, who gave United the lead in the 48th minute. But Rayo Vallecano drew level through Alvaro Garcia Rivera’s finish nine minutes later.



Ronaldo’s future has been one of the big stories this summer with the 37-year-old making it clear he wants to leave to pursue Champions League football.
