Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha has complained to manager Erik ten Hag that Ronaldo is being treated disrespectfully at the organization.
This came after the seasoned forward was switched out during United's match against Newcastle United on Sunday.
At Old Trafford, Ronaldo started in front of the defense for the Red Devils. With 18 minutes remaining, the Portuguese forward was replaced by Marcus Rashford after two attempts were disallowed.
Saha questioned Ten Hag's choice to leave out a known goal scorer, saying there is nobody better than him when you are under pressure to score. He was muttering and shaking his head angrily as he left the field.
Saha is convinced the former Real Madrid star has not declined in any way, adding there is' no indication 'he is slowing down.
“Ronaldo has been disrespected,’’ Saha told Boyle Sports.
“I have not fully agreed with the management of Ten Hag.
“I can understand why Ronaldo was upset after the Newcastle game because he trusts himself to score. Lately, he has not been as lucky and efficient. It happens, and people need to realise he is not a robot.
“When people are tired, Ronaldo is a killer. There is no one better than him when you are under pressure to score important goals. He did it last year and there is no reason for him not to continue that this season."
“I have not seen any indication physically that shows he’s slowing down.”
