Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, has claimed Erik Ten Hag “provoked” him into walking out during the game against Tottenham Hotspur.
The 37-year-old made this claim in the second part of his interview with Piers Morgan on TalkTV, which was aired in the UK on Thursday.
Ronaldo also said he felt disrespected by Ten Hag after the Dutchman refused to play him against Manchester City and then decided to bring him on for three minutes against Spurs.
“You don’t put me on against Man City because of respect for my career, and you want to put me on for three minutes against Tottenham?
“It doesn’t make sense. I think he did it on purpose. I felt provoked not only because of that game but before.
“He don’t respect the way I should deserve. But it is what it is. This is why probably, the game against Tottenham, I left,” Ronaldo said.
