"Have I ignored that? Obviously not. It is unacceptable. For everyone. I told them that it is unacceptable and that we are a team and that we have to stay together until the end", said the coach to Viaplay.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Diogo Dalot were some of the players seen leaving Old Trafford early.
Coach Ten Hag put Ronaldo in the starting lineup in an almost second-string team (reinforcements Lisandro Martinez and Christian Eriksen also played), given that Manchester United had played the day before in Norway, in a defeat against Atlético Madrid. Ronaldo only played the first half and left before the final whistle.
