‘I’ll deal with it’ – Fuming Ten Hag slams Cristiano Ronaldo for storming down tunnel before end of Man Utd vs Tottenham

FUMING Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has said he will “deal” with Cristiano Ronaldo tomorrow after the wantaway forward stormed down the tunnel before full-time.

The 37-year-old found himself back on the Red Devils substitutes bench against Tottenham after turning in a lacklustre performance in Sunday’s 0-0 draw with Newcastle.

He watched on as Fred and compatriot Bruno Fernandes fired United to a massive win over top-four rivals Spurs.

Christian Eriksen, Anthony Elanga and Scott McTominay were brought on by manager Ten Hag, leaving the Dutchman with two subs left.

However, Ronaldo stormed down the tunnel before full-time.

And fuming boss Ten Hag has said he will “deal” with the stroppy star tomorrow.

Ten Hag told Amazon Prime: “I have seen him [leaving], I didn’t speak to him after.

“I will deal with that tomorrow. Today I enjoyed the performance.

“Today I enjoyed this performance we are celebrating this victory and now we have to recover from this and we have a big game against Chelsea, the premier league is so exciting.”

And the 700 club-goal man has been put on blast by ex-Leeds defender Danny Mills, who labelled Ronaldo’s strop “an absolute disgrace”.

Mills also accused Ronaldo of being “disrespectful” to his team-mates, who turned in one of their best performances under the new manager, and says the five-time Ballon d’Or winner believes he’s bigger than the club.

The Sky Sports pundit fumed: “If he has done that, it’s an absolute disgrace.

“I think that’s disrespectful to the team, to the manager, to the fans.

“They’re 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.”

Mills continued: “Do you think that’s deliberate? The fact that he’s done that and it’s a little bit of a selfish act to go, ‘actually, I’m not involved’.

“He knows full well that everybody’s going to see him – you know what it’s like at Old Trafford – you’ve got to walk all the way down the touchline. 

“It’s not like he can sneak out at the halfway line. You’ve got to walk 50-60 yards – 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.”

Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth believes Ronaldo walking off was “his final act”.

Some of the blame has been shifted from Ronaldo and onto the Glazers.

talkSPORT host and YouTube sensation Mark Goldbridge says they should’ve listened to Ten Hag and let Ronaldo go.

He tweeted: “Ronaldo walks off down the tunnel…. I blame the Glazers.

“They’ve created this mess by not letting him go when Ten Hag said it was ok.”

Others say Ronaldo has stolen the headlines, overshadowing a good team performance.

A fan said: “I like Ronaldo but walking off with about 2 minutes left of the game just to cause a scene is a bit silly.”
