Video: Angry Cristiano Ronaldo refuses to applaud fans or shake hands with Erik ten Hag after 4-0 defeat at Brentford

Cristiano Ronaldo could hardly hide his anger at Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag after they were thrashed 4-0 by Brentford on Saturday, Newspremises reports.

Ronaldo refused to to acknowledge his own fans even after he was directed by ten Hag’s assistant coach, Steve McClaren, to clap for the supporters after the game.

The Portugal captain also refused to shake hands with the manager after the match, and angrily leave the pitch into the dressing room.

The 37-year-old lost possession in the build-up to the first goal and looked well off the pace, conceding possession several times.

Brentford went into the break four goals up and the second half was essentially a procession to the final whistle.

At the final whistle, Ronaldo was seen in conversation with McClaren who appeared to instruct him to walk over to the away fans and applaud them.

Ronaldo, however, according to the MEN, ignored McClaren and trudged down the tunnel while the rest of his teammates applauded their supporters.

The five-time Balloon d’Or winner has been heavily linked with a summer move away from Old Trafford.
