EPL: I’m better than you – Cristiano Ronaldo Blasted for disregarding Erik ten Hag
Frank Leboeuf, a former player for Chelsea, praised Erik ten Hag for appropriately punishing Cristiano Ronaldo.
Leboeuf claimed that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner already believed himself to be superior to the manager due to the Portuguese’s constant gesticulations and shaking whenever he was off the field of play.
Ronaldo was punished for disrespecting his teammates and disobeying his manager by being left out of the team that drew 1-1 with Chelsea over the weekend.

However, Ten Hag revealed on Wednesday that the 37-year-old has rejoined the team in time for Thursday’s Europa League match.
Ronaldo repeated the same mistake during Man United’s preseason game against Rayo, so Leboeuf thinks the Dutch manager did the right thing by punishing him.
The former Chelsea player claimed it was unprofessional for a football legend like Ronaldo to behave that way and constantly display his rage to the world.
Leboeuf told FairBettingSites, “It’s also unprofessional, and for it to happen again against Tottenham, I think you cannot do that. He knows exactly what he was doing and wanted to show to the world that he was unhappy.
