Manchester United boss, Erik ten Hag has said that Cristiano Ronaldo is not happy at Old Trafford.
According to him, the Portugal international is ‘p****d off’ at being left on the bench against Manchester City at the weekend and is unhappy with his playing time under the Dutch coach.
Ronaldo was kept on the bench for the entire duration of their 6-3 defeat at the Etihad on Sunday.
Ronaldo has started just one Premier League match so far this season, which was the 4-0 defeat at Brentford.
“I can’t see that relation, that he is not coming on when we are 4-0 down, I did not bring him on out of respect,” Ten Hag told the press ahead of Thursday’s Europa League fixture.
“It has nothing to do with the future or January. I don’t see him as unhappy. He is happy, training well and enjoying.
“He’s not happy that he didn’t play Sunday, don’t get me wrong, but the question was about his mood in training, where he’s happy.
“Of course, he wants to play and he’s p***** off when he’s not playing.”
