According to the Portuguese attacker, he wasn’t the only player to leave early during the pre-season match as he claims 7 other players left too but the media was just centered on painting him the black sheep.

Ronaldo is no more in the first team after been pulled out for the second time following his interview with Piers Morgan, the first time was when he left the Stadium during a match against Tottenham.

Erik ten Hag who claimed it was necessary to take action against Ronaldo after the night United produced a stunning victory against Spurs also stated that he acted because it wasn’t the firs time Ronaldo left the pitch before the end of the game.

It was made to understand that this was becoming Ronaldo’s new character and had to be curtailed in order to maintain a healthy work environment within the team but according to the Real Madrid Legend, he wasn’t even the only player who left during the pre-season match.

Speaking with Piers Morgan, Ronaldo said; “In that game eight players did the same [left early] but they only speak about the black sheep which is me, which is, I completely understand, okay, it’s done, I apologize to the coach and for me, the chapter was closed.

“Second, I understand that getting a new job, Manchester United was so bad the last five years that they should… clean the house, let’s say in that way.

“But I’m not going to give you points, but you don’t do it the same procedure to every player. I’m not going to mention players but they don’t do it the same way.

“The press make this so big, it’s because probably the communication wasn’t the best. But I really understand in the beginning because I didn’t do the pre-season, I don’t start to play, but going more further than that, further than that.

“Other things happened that people don’t know. And I’m not hiding that the empathy with the coach is not good. I’m honest.

“He [Erik ten Hag] doesn’t respect the way I should deserve. But it is what it is. This is why probably, the game against Tottenham, I left.”
