PREMIER - Ronaldo: "Why did you take me off?" Rangnick explains him
Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick has defended his decision to substitute Cristiano Ronaldo after the Portuguese showed his disappointment at being hauled off during his side's 3-1 win at Brentford.
"I understand Cristiano is ambitious but maybe when he is a manager in the future, he will make the same decision after 75 minutes. I didn't expect him to hug me after being substituted. I know how goalscoring players think and I had to make this decision. I have no issues with Cristiano. He was coming back from injury and hadn't played for one-and-a-half weeks. We had the likes of Rashford and Anthony Martial on the bench so why not use it? I would make the same decision again.
