Ronaldo’s second stint at Old Trafford has not gone to plan, with the Portugal captain refusing to come on as a substitute against Tottenham and duly leaving the stadium before full-time.
Ten Hag did reintegrate the player into his squad following that breach of discipline but Ronaldo’s comments have only added the problem.
A statement from the club, released on Monday afternoon, read: "Manchester United notes the media coverage regarding an interview by Cristiano Ronaldo. The club will consider its response after the full facts have been established.
"Our focus remains on preparing for the second half of the season and continuing the momentum, belief and togetherness being built among the players, manager, staff, and fans."
