Speaking to the media after the Tottenham game on Wednesday, Erik ten Hag said: “Today, I don’t pay attention to this [Cristiano Ronaldo’s walk-off].
“We can deal with that later. For now, we want to focus on this team, it was a magnificent performance.
“Magnificent, from all 11 players. I have seen Ronaldo [leaving], I didn’t speak to him after. I will deal with that later.”
Ronaldo, who remained an unused substitute in the 2–0 victory against Tottenham, walked off the pitch shortly before the final whistle at Old Trafford.
The 37-year-old forward, whose relationship with the manager appears to be broken, headed straight home instead of celebrating with his teammates.
