Premier League legend Alan Shearer has suggested that Cristiano Ronaldo has made it “difficult” for Reds boss Erik ten Hag after he walked down the Old Trafford tunnel before the full-time whistle on Wednesday night.

United produced an impressive display to secure an important victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford, with Fred and Bruno Fernandes both on target for the home side.

Ten Hag’s men dominated proceedings and were worthy winners against Antonio Conte’s side. It was a superb performance and a vital win, but Ronaldo is likely to steal the headlines after walking down the tunnel before the match had even finished

The 37-year-old was an unused substitute against Spurs, despite Ten Hag making just three of his permitted five substitutions in the game. After realising that he would not be sent on against the London outfit, Ronaldo headed for the tunnel, despite his side still being in action on the pitch.

Shearer, speaking on Amazon Prime towards the end of United’s clash with Spurs, suggested that he understands Ronaldo’s frustrations, but insisted that the veteran attacker needs to look at the bigger picture.

“I understand his frustrations of not being able to get on the pitch but when you look at the bigger picture, his team have put on a really good performance tonight,” said Shearer.

“The manager had a big call to make in leaving him out and it turned out to be the right decision because they have done everything right. It’s a difficult situation because you are talking about the best player in the world and the best player we have ever seen so it makes things difficult for the manager.

“He is going to get asked about that now in the press conference when he should be asked about every one of his players on the pitch tonight because they have all been impressive.”
