Ten Hag later confirmed that Ronaldo had refused to come on as a substitute in the final minutes of the match – and Ronaldo has now given his verdict on the incident in the second part of his explosive, unsanctioned interview with Piers Morgan, which aired on Thursday night.

The veteran explained: “Piers I will be honest with you, it’s something that I regret to leave from the stadium. Probably, or maybe no, I don’t know. It’s difficult to tell you 100% but let’s say I regret it, but in the same way, I felt provoked by the coach. Not allowed for me, a coach to put me in three minutes in a game. Sorry, I’m not that kind of player. I know what I can give to the teams.”

Ronaldo had earlier come under fire for leaving Old Trafford at half-time during a pre-season friendly against Rayo Vallecano, but he questioned why he was the only one mentioned after others also left early during his chat with Morgan.

He added: “Me and eight players, but they mentioned only my name…everyone do that… Last year, many players did the same. In that game, eight players do the same but they only speak about the black sheep which is me, which is, I completely understand, okay, it’s done, I apologise to the coach and for me, the chapter was closed.”
