On Thursday, the Manchester United club announced that Cristiano Ronaldo would be suspended for one game and would not be able to participate in the game against Chelsea. In addition, it is reported that Ronaldo will not be able to follow the team to participate in training in the next three days.
The “Daily Mail” revealed that Ten Hag had told Ronaldo to play, but Ronaldo refused the coach’s instructions and left the stadium directly.
It is reported that Ten Hag communicated with Ronaldo at the Carrington training base on Thursday. Manchester United still believes that Ronaldo is an important player, but for the benefit of all parties, Ronaldo’s agent is seeking the possibility of a transfer in January next year.
Ten Hag’s punishment of Ronaldo won the support of Manchester United’s senior management. British reporter Robertson said that the current problems have a greater impact on Ronaldo himself than Manchester United. Manchester United played well without him, and Ronaldo needs to prepare for the World Cup.
Robertson believes that if Ronaldo cannot play again before the World Cup in Qatar, it is entirely possible.
Another reporter, Peter Hall, said that Manchester United has stated that if Mendes cannot find a home for Ronaldo, then Manchester United is willing to terminate his contract with Ronaldo in January and let him leave the team freely.
