Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo decided to leave a friendly against Rayo Vallecano early but it seems the move was not pre-approved and the team’s manager was pretty annoyed about it.
The soccer legend made headlines last week when he decided that sticking around to the completion of his team’s match was not a necessity. At halftime of Manchester United’s 1-1 draw against Rayo Vallecano on July 31, Ronaldo was substituted out of the game. Nothing shocking considering there was nothing major at stake and several other key players were sitting out of the match.
However, Ronaldo’s teammates that did sit out of the match were asked by Manchester United’s manager Erik ten Hag to show support by taking in the action from the directors’ box or from their own hospitality suites.
