On 31 July 2022, Manchester United played their last pre-season friendly match at Old Trafford against Rayo Vallecano. After missing the majority of the pre-season, Ronaldo finally played in that match for 45 minutes. However, he was seen to leave the stadium early without waiting to end the match. Regarding that action, ten Hag slammed him and other players by terming that ‘Unacceptable’. Now, former England international batter came in support of Ronaldo on Twitter.

Kevin Pietersen warns Erik ten Hag regarding the Cristiano Ronaldo situation

On Twitter, Pietersen wrote a saying to compare both the player and coach of Manchester United. He also warned ten Hag to handle the whole situation in a gentle way. He wrote: “A great saying – if you’re going to play a game of cat and mouse, make sure you’re not the mouse. Can someone in Manchester please tell Erin ten Hag that he’s the mouse in his standoff with the BOSS, @Cristiano!”

Speaking of that incident, Erik ten Hag said that not only Ronaldo, but many other players also left the stadium earlier in that match. He said that as a team and squad, every player needs to stay until the end of a match.

Speaking through Viaplay, he said: ‘‘There were many more who went home. I certainly don’t condone this. This is not acceptable. For everyone. I told them that it was unacceptable. That we are a team, a squad, and that you should stay until the end.’’ Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to be seen for United on 7 August 2022 as they will take on Brighton in the season opener at Old Trafford.
