Manchester United legend Roy Keane has slammed Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag for disrespecting Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo has only started one of United’s seven Premier League matches this season and was an unused substitute as Manchester United lost 6-3 at Manchester City.

Keane told Sky Sports after the City loss: “I think Man United are just showing disrespect to Ronaldo. I think he should have been let go before the transfer window. I think the manager is holding on to him.

“Okay, you say you need options, but you don’t hold on to Ronaldo to sit on the bench. He’s one of the greatest players ever.

“He had options. This idea that he had no options is rubbish; he did have options, four or five very good options. It’s just going to get uglier as the season goes on.”
