Despite being teammates in the past, Rooney takes delight in criticizing Ronaldo and his attitude at Old Trafford ever since his comeback. Though people think what the former England captain is doing is right and borne out of passion for his former club, others think he is going too far and should face his career as a manager.
Wayne Rooney has described the conduct of his former teammate in a Premier League game against Tottenham as unacceptable. Speaking on talkSPORT he said: “The career he’s had, there’s him and [Lionel] Messi as arguably the two best players of all time and you can go either way with that.
“But I just think the things he’s done from the start of the season really, it’s not acceptable for Manchester United really. I see, obviously, Roy Keane defend him, but Roy wouldn’t have said that.
“It’s a distraction that Manchester United don’t need at the minute [as they] try to rebuild, Cristiano should just get his head down and work and be ready to play when the manager needs him. If he does that, he’ll be an asset, if he doesn’t, it will become an unwanted distraction.”

Ronaldo refused to play any part in United’s victory over Spurs last month. He left Old Trafford with game still on, an action that prompted Ten Hag to ban him from the first team.
The Portuguese has since returned to the squad but was ruled out of the EFL Cup victory over Aston Villa due to injury. He may, however, return on Sunday against Fulham.
