They believe he has disrespected the club and coach Ten Hag with his explosive Interview.
According to Sky Sports, Erik Ten Hag and United players are disappointed with Ronaldo’s interview.
Now, the Red Devils are considering ‘all of their options’ regarding Ronaldo’s future at Old Trafford.
The club’s management and players are completely confused by the 37-year-old’s actions.
They feel United treated Ronaldo with respect even after he asked to leave and after not coming on against Tottenham.
United’s players don’t understand why such a big player would tarnish the club’s reputation with such an explosive interview.
Sky Sports also revealed that Ronaldo was informed he won’t start the match against Fulham on Thursday.
However, the Portugal international could have still been in Ten Hag’s matchday squad.
Instead, Ronaldo told the club that he was ‘ill’ and he couldn’t travel for the game, the last match before the 2022 World Cup.
The United hierarchy are now more frustrated since the interview got released after a match.
