Six biggest Cristiano Ronaldo strops as Man Utd star reacts furiously to being subbed by Ralf Rangnick at Brentford

CRISTIANO RONALDO hit the headlines last night with his latest tantrum against Brentford.

The superstar, now aged 36, was warned after his return to Old Trafford last summer that he cannot expect to play every game.

But that did not stop him from storming off and throwing his coat to the floor after Ralf Rangnick hauled him off in the 3-1 win at Brentford.

Ronaldo put his hands on his hips and trudged away after being replaced with 20 minutes to play on Wednesday night – just moments after he produced a stunning piece of skill for United’s second goal.

Ronaldo was furious when he was the victim of a double change from interim boss Rangnick – despite it being his first game after injury.

The German boss tried to hug the Portugal legend as he went off but Ron had his arms wide open by his side and looked straight ahead as he took a seat on the steps near the dugout rather than the bench.

Rangnick later went over for a word and that eventually appeared to cool down as he watched United see out a comfortable victory.

CR7 does not like missing minutes, particularly when he feels there are goals for him to score.

Here are five other times Ronaldo has thrown a strop at being denied from playing a full 90 minutes…

Levante 2 Real Madrid 2, February 2018

With Real Madrid leading 2-1 Zinedine Zidane felt the game was safe enough to take Ronaldo off.

But the decision backfired as Real drew and Ronaldo kicked off.

He was visibly upset at being withdrawn and he only got angrier as a cameraman zoomed in on his pain while sat on the bench.

The Portuguese hit out, telling the camerman: "There is no reason (to focus on him). Look at the game, aim the camera on the game."

Las Palmas 2 Real Madrid 2, September 2016

The Levante match was not the first time Ronaldo's relationship with Zidane was showing signs of strain.

Likewise, on this occasion Zidane substituted Ronaldo and the forward responded by walking past his manager without even looking at him.

Ronaldo then proceeded to sulk on the bench as he watched Las Palmas equalise to draw the match.

Juventus 1 AC Milan 0, November 2019

Zidane is not the only manager who has been subject to Ronaldo's rage.

During his first season at Juventus, Ronaldo responded to being taken off against AC Milan by heading straight down the tunnel after exchanging tense words with Maurizio Sarri.

The forward was perhaps surprised at being subbed as early as the 55th minute – being replaced by Paulo Dybala, who grabbed the winner.

Despite that, Ronaldo's mood did not change and he reportedly left the stadium before the game had even finished.

Sarri's successor at Juventus, Andrea Pirlo, also received similar treatment from Ronaldo.

His was arguably more deserved however as he did something Ronaldo likely considers a deadly sin – subbing him off when he was on a hat-trick.

Juventus had fallen behind in a key title clash with Ronaldo striking twice to give his team the lead and ultimately three points.

So when Pirlo hauled him off in favour of Alvaro Morata, Ronaldo cut a bemused figure.

He trudged off the pitch shaking his head before firing a few choice words at his manager.

Juventus 1 Roma 3, August 2020

This was a rare game where Ronaldo missed out altogether, and he was clearly fuming as he watched on from the stands.

He had no reason to be either, as he collected his second Serie A medal once the match was completed.

His chances of winning the golden boot were practically impossible by that stage too, as Ciro Immobile scored twice on the final day to finish on 36 goals – five more than Ronaldo.

CR7 clearly doesn't like missing out on such prestigious matches – or any for that fact – as Rangnick has now found out.
