When asked about Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at Man United after the 6-3 loss to Man City, in which he was kept on the bench, Erik ten Hag said: “He’s not happy that he didn’t play Sunday, don’t get me wrong.,
“but the question was about his mood in training, where he’s happy. Of course, he wants to play and he’s p* off when he’s not playing.
“I can’t see that relation, that he is not coming on when we are 4-0 down.
“I did not bring him on out of respect. It has nothing to do with the future or January. I don’t see him as unhappy. He is happy, training well, and enjoying.”

Ronaldo didn’t get a single minute of playing time in the loss to City and hasn’t started a Premier League game since the 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Brentford.
He has, however, regularly featured in the Europa League this season and is expected to start against Omonia Nicosia on Thursday.
