Cristiano Ronaldo DROPPED From Man United Squad To Face Chelsea In The Premier League.

 Manchester United have confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo will not be part of the squad for the trip to Chelsea this Saturday at Stamford Bridge.

The Portuguese is expected to train away from the first team after he stormed off the pitch just before the final whistle of Wednesday's 2-0 win over Tottenham, thanks to goals from Fred and Bruno Fernandes.

He reportedly refused to come on as a substitute when Ten Hag brought on Christian Eriksen and Anthony Elanga in the 87th minute, before he left Old Trafford early instead of going to the dressing room.United have declined to comment on those reports.


This was confirmed in a statement released by the club on Thursday.

“Cristiano Ronaldo will not be part of the Manchester United squad for this Saturday’s Premier League game against Chelsea.

“The rest of the squad is fully focused on preparing for that fixture,” the statement read.

The punishment was imposed by United manager, Erik ten Hag, and it is ultimately backed by the club hierarchy.

It is believed Ten Hag would approve Ronaldo leaving in the January window given the 37-year-old’s discontent at being at the club.

He did not train with the first team squad Thursday and is not expected to rejoin the group until Monday.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner have started just two Premier League games. He has scored two goals in 12 appearances so far this season, including his 700th club career goal in the 2-1 win over Everton earlier this month.
