Former Premier League defender, Danny Mills has slammed Cristiano Ronaldo for leaving before full-time during Manchester United’s win over Tottenham on Wednesday night.
United brushed aside Antonio Conte’s side 2-0 at Old Trafford, thanks to goals from midfielders and Bruno Fernandes.
Legendary Portuguese attacker was an unused substitute as Erik ten Hag continues to show he does not believe in the 5-time Ballon d’Or winner.
Ronaldo could not hold his frustration any more as he stormed down the tunnel, even though there was still a chance that he could be subbed on.
Mills told Sky Sports: “It’s a little bit of a selfish act to go, ‘oh actually I’m not involved’, he knows full well that everybody’s going to see it.
“You know what it’s like at Old Trafford, you’ve got to walk all the way down the touchline, not just sneaking down at the halfway line. He knows everyone’s going to watch him.
“And I feel sorry for United now, and Ten Hag because that’s an outstanding result against a top side and all it’s going to be about is Ronaldo.
“It’s an absolute disgrace, I think it’s incredibly disrespectful to the team, to the manager, to the fans.
“They were winning 2-0, what complaint can he have? If they were losing 2-0 it still wouldn’t be right, but I would sort of understand it. He clearly thinks he’s bigger than the football club.”
