Premier League legend Alan Shearer has suggested that Cristiano Ronaldo has made it "difficult" for Reds boss Erik ten Hag after he walked down the Old Trafford tunnel before the full-time whistle

The 37-year-old was an unused substitute against Spurs, despite Ten Hag making just three of his permitted five substitutions in the game.

After realising that he would not be sent on against the London outfit, Ronaldo headed for the tunnel, despite his side still being in action on the pitch.

Shearer, speaking on Amazon Prime towards the end of United's clash with Spurs, suggested that he understands Ronaldo's frustrations, but insisted that he needs to look at the bigger picture.

United produced an impressive display to secure an important victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford, with Fred and Bruno Fernandes both on target for the home side.

"I understand his frustrations of not being able to get on the pitch but when you look at the bigger picture, his team have put on a really good performance tonight," said Shearer.
