Cristiano Ronaldo back in training with Manchester United

Cristiano Ronaldo has returned to first-team training with Manchester United after being dropped for his refusal to go on as a substitute against Tottenham last week.

The forward was left out of United’s squad for Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Chelsea and did individual training with fitness coaches at Carrington on Friday. He was also fined around two weeks' wages, up to £720,000, for his public show of indiscipline.

But Ronaldo has now re-joined the group and is available for Thursday’s Europa League visit of Sheriff Tiraspol.

Ten Hag and Ronaldo reach truce

It was gathered that Erik ten Hag and Ronaldo have been in constant dialogue since the manager took the decision to omit the Portugal international.

“It is a difficult decision, it’s clear,” Ten Hag said last week.

“But I think there has to be consequences for behavior or when it’s bad behavior and it’s the second time, then you can’t let it go because otherwise it is going to be miserable for the future."

More significant will be whether the former world soccer player of the year manages to keep his place for Sunday’s Premier League fixture at home to West Ham United.
