Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has been warned to release Cristiano Ronaldo from his Manchester United contract in January if he doesn’t see him as a starter.

Ronaldo reacted to being an unused substitute in Manchester United’s 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur by storming off down the tunnel before the final whistle. It is claimed he even left Old Trafford completely before the game ended.

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand said: “My only thought could be is that Cristiano Ronaldo is being saved for the weekend against Chelsea.

“That’s the only way that I see it, logically, that he did not play [last night]. I think Ronaldo will be absolutely fuming with that, naturally.

“I wouldn’t expect anything different from him. I think the big problem Erik ten Hag has got is that, coming up to this next window, he has to think very carefully about what he does.

“If he doesn’t see Ronaldo as a starter in his team more often than not, I think he has to release him from his contract.

“He has to let him go. It’s not fair on anybody, on the club, on Ronaldo, on Ten Hag, that the first question after every game is ‘Why didn’t Ronaldo start?’

“That will be a story. United won 2-0 and the leading story will be about Ronaldo. That can’t be right.

“You sit here and think why did Man Utd not just let him go if Ten Hag knew he didn’t want Ronaldo in his plans. That’s the baffling thing for me.

“You think what he’s done in his career… at his level… surely the manager would have known before the season started if he was going to play Ronaldo or not, if he wanted him in his team, if he was someone to build around.

“It looks to me right now that it was a no [he didn’t want Ronaldo]. If that’s the case, he should have let Ronaldo go.

“It’s gong to be something that hampers Ten Hag going forward until the day Ronaldo leaves the club, because of how much of an icon and superstar he is.”
