Cristiano Ronaldo has told Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that he should not have benched him in Manchester United’s draw against Everton, according to reports.

The Red Devils manager left the Portugal captain on the bench – sparking plenty debate on whether or not it was the correct decision.

Solskjaer’s choice drew criticism from former United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, who said: “you should always play your best players”.

Solskjaer defended himself, admitting he wants Ronaldo on the pitch as much as possible but insisted he must “manage the players” so they are “firing” in the “final stretch” of the season.

However, according to a Sun source, the 36-year-old was not happy to be left out of the starting XI for the Everton match.

“Ronaldo was extremely disappointed for being benched,” the source claimed.

“Ole presumed that he was tired after the Villarreal game, so he decided to only put him on early in the second half.

“But Cristiano told him that he will tell him when he isn’t fit to play and that he wants to play in every single league game.

“He also told him that he has come here to win trophies and that United need to play their most important players in all of the games.”

Speaking before Saturday’s game against Leicester, Solskjaer insisted he is “relaxed” about the criticism from Ferguson.

“I’m quite relaxed about it,” he said. “I disagreed with the gaffer quite a few times and I told my wife quite a few times that I disagreed with him, but that never made headlines as a player.

“I’m sure Sir Alex knows that it doesn’t bother me. We all want to see Cristiano. We all want to, because he’s unique, he’s different, he’s had a career and everyone wants to come and watch him.

“But the plain fact of it is he cannot play every single game that we play, that’s just physical nature, human nature.

“He knows how difficult this job is anyway, the gaffer. He didn’t always play the same eleven.

“He took some risks at times to rest Ryan Giggs, Wayne Rooney or David Beckham, the best players that we had. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn’t.”
