EPL: We don’t need distractions, I’m disappointed in you – Man Utd legend tells Ronaldo

Manchester United legend, Peter Schmeichel has expressed his disappointment with forward Cristiano Ronaldo for his actions during the Red Devils’ Premier League tie with Tottenham Hotspur on October 19.

Ronaldo was an unused substitute for Man United’s Premier League 2-0 win over Tottenham.

His teammates, Fred and Bruno Fernandes, were on the scoresheet as Man United secured all three points against Antonio Conte’s side.

However, it was Ronaldo’s action in the 89th minute of the contest that grabbed the headlines.

The Portugal captain walked down the tunnel at Old Trafford before the final whistle was even blown.

Speaking on the development, Schmeichel condemned Ronaldo’s actions, insisting that Erik ten Hag’s side don’t need distractions like that.

“It is the first time I can say that I’m disappointed with him. Normally I back him, I understand his situation. We are in transition,” Schmeichel told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“Manchester United are now five managers down the road since Alex Ferguson. We have got Erik ten Hag in now, who has very clear ideas about the way he wants to play football. We need understanding and time from everyone.

“We don’t need distractions like that, and that is a disappointment, I would say,” he added.
