It has reportedly been revealed how the rest of the Manchester United dressing room has reacted to Erik ten Hag's treatment of Cristiano Ronaldo in recent weeks.

Ten Hag 'Sets Conditions' For Ronaldo's 1st Team Return

According to Manchester Evening News, players at the Red Devils have been impressed with the Dutchman's handling of the controversial saga Ronaldo has become embroiled in.

The 37-year-old was subjected to criticism from his manager recently following his recent walk-off at Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League, a 2-0 victory over the Lilywhites in which the forward did not play.

Regular game time has been hard to come by this season so far for the ex-Real Madrid and Juventus talisman, who was subsequently dropped from United's squad to take on Chelsea this past weekend for his behaviour.

Reports suggested that Ronaldo was also later fined two weeks' wages, with it said that Ten Hag's decision to punish the sport's all-time leading international goalscorer has been strongly backed by everyone at the 20-time English champions.

It is said that players in the side admire the former Ajax Amsterdam boss' "delicate but authoritative way" in which he handled the five-time Ballon d'Or winner's misdemeanour after he publicly insisted he still wants the forward in his squad.

Those comments from Ten Hag seemed to cool discussions over a potential January exit for Ronaldo, who took to Instagram last week to admit that the heat of the moment got the best of him.

The report states further that the manager has earned a great deal of respect within the United squad after they accepted that the five-time UEFA Champions League victor would need to be dealt with in order for standards to be maintained.
