Cristiano Ronaldo was inexplicably benched in the 1-1 draw with Chelsea this Sunday.
The 36-year-old came on as a substitute but was unable to get on the scoresheet as the home side kept him quiet.
United interim boss Michael Carrick has explained his reasons for benching the Portuguese legend; “A few tweaks and changes to freshen things up. Cristiano Ronaldo is your standout name [to be on the bench]. I have had a good chat with Cristiano and he was great.”
Meanwhile, at full-time, MEN journalist Tyrone Marshall reports the Manchester United forward stormed straight down the tunnel after the final whistle.
He didn’t say anything to his teammates or the opponents and was visibly upset at not playing a bigger role.
