Cristiano Ronaldo took to social media to share an important message. This was after it was confirmed that he was dropped from Manchester United’s squad vs Chelsea on October 22.
“As I’ve always done throughout my career, I try to live and play respectfully towards my colleagues, my adversaries and my coaches. That hasn’t changed. I haven’t changed. “I’m the same person and the same professional that I’ve been for the last 20 years playing elite football, and respect has always played a very important role in my decision-making process. I started very young, the older and most experienced players’ examples were always very important to me. Therefore, later on, I’ve always tried to set an example myself for the youngsters that grew in all the teams that I’ve represented. Unfortunately, that’s not always possible and sometimes the heat of the moment gets the best of us,” he wrote on Instagram.
This comes in the wake of United’s 2-0 win vs Tottenham Hotspur. Ronaldo decided to walk down the tunnel before the final while was blown.
United manager Erik ten Hag said he would ‘deal’ with his star player.
“Cristiano Ronaldo will not be part of the Manchester United squad for this Saturday’s Premier League game against Chelsea,” read United’s official statement.
