Quoted by The Athletic, Ralf Rangnick opened up his conversation with a visibly furious Cristiano Ronaldo in the post-match interview.
Ralf explained: “He [Ronaldo] said ‘Why me, why did you take me off?’
“I said I had to take the decision for the team, for the club.
“Maybe in a few years when he is a coach he will understand.”
Cristiano Ronaldo made no effort to hide his emotions after being taken off for Harry Maguire in the Brentford win when the score was 2-0.
Rangnick had to pacify the 36-year-old on the bench but this behavior is not acceptable from a team captain.
Fortunately for Manchester United, the game ended 3-1 thanks to goals from Anthony Elanga, Mason Greenwood, and Marcus Rashford.
