Cristiano Ronaldo Throws Strop After Being Subbed in Manchester United’s Win Over Brentford

Cristiano Ronaldo was furious after being substituted against Brentford (BT Sport)

Cristiano Ronaldo made his feelings clear after he was substituted during Manchester United’s Premier League clash with Brentford on Wednesday evening.

The 36-year-old made his return from a hip injury which has kept him out of United’s last two fixtures.

Ronaldo failed to find the net during his return but he provided an excellent chested pass in the build up to Bruno Fernandes’ goal which doubled United’s lead following Anthony Elanga’s opener.

Shortly after United’s second goal, Ralf Rangnick opted to replace Ronaldo with Marcus Rashford and the Portugal international was clearly furious with the decision as he slowly made his way towards the dugout.

Ronaldo made a quick remark to Rangnick as he made his way to United’s bench and then threw his jacket to the ground.

But he wasn’t finished there as television cameras caught another glimpse of Ronaldo still complaining about the substitution decision to United’s coaching staff as he sat on the steps.

“Why did he take me off?”

Cristiano Ronaldo was not happy at being withdrawn in the 70th minute with Man Utd 2-0 up against Brentford…

Rashford then scored his first goal since October to put United 3-0 ahead before Ivan Toney score late on for Brentford.
