Cristiano Ronaldo started against Rayo Vallecano in United’s final pre-season friendly and was subbed off at half-time.
He was subsequently spotted leaving Old Trafford before the final whistle. Man United responded to his actions, claiming they had no problems with it.
Ten Hag has now come out to respond to Cristiano’s early exit, calling it ‘unacceptable’.
When told that Ronaldo had left the game early in an interview with Viaplay Sport, he replied: “There were more who did this.”
He then responded to the question of whether it was okay for them to do so: “Absolutely not. This is unacceptable. I tell them this, that’s unacceptable. We are a team, we are a squad. You have to stay until the end.”
