ormer Manchester United captain Gary Neville admits he’s “disappointed” by the behaviour of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo has told the club he wants to leave Old Trafford in pursuit of trophies and Champions League football but an exit is yet to materialise and no concrete offers have been forthcoming.
Tensions heightened further last week when the forward was subbed off during a 1-1 friendly draw with Rayo Vallecano and he left the stadium before full-time – with manager Erik ten Hag calling the episode “unacceptable”.
Neville said last night: “I’m a little bit disappointed in him. Because he’s letting the manager go into those press conferences.
“He’s a good age, he’s been one of the best players in the world. Could he not do that interview?
“On Sunday we’re going to ask for him after the game, could he not come out and speak to us instead of getting other people to say it?”
