Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit during their friendly against Rayo Vallecano was unacceptable. Ronaldo was seen leaving the stadium before the end of the draw in their final season friendly before the upcoming Premier League season. He was seen leaving with his compatriot Diogo Dalot who was not part of the squad to play the La Liga side.
“He is not on the level of the rest of the squad because he missed a lot of weeks. But he needs games and he needs training, a lot,” Erik ten Hag said about Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit from Old Trafford. “I think he can. It starts with him getting fit because he’s only just started. He is a fantastic football player, and he has proved it so many times, but you are always judged on what you are presenting now and how you are performing now. So, the team and Cristiano himself have to prove it.”
“I’m not frustrated at all. First of all, we have a squad and we have already made progress. We are more proactive than we were at the start. Second is the players who we have now signed. We are really happy with them. You can already see that they can contribute to the squad,” he added. “The last thing is that we know what we want. It’s not about signing players; it’s about signing the right players. So, we are really planning it carefully and we are sticking to that and working hard to get the right players in to construct a good squad and a squad that can win games.”
