Cristiano Ronaldo storms out of the pitch after disappointing draw vs Burnley

Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo stormed out of the pitch after a disappointing performance against Burnley.

Man United dropped two points when Jay Rodriguez scored the equaliser from a close range early in the second half.

Before the equaliser, Manchester United had gotten the breakthrough early in the first half when Raphael Varane scored a header but his effort was ruled out because Harry Maguire was in an offside position during the set-piece.

Paul Pogba scored the opener with a excellent strike, marking his first Premier League appearance since his cameo against Liverpool last year.

Manchester United missed a couple of good chances, some would have claimed Ronaldo would have scored at least one of them if he started the game.

Edinson Cavani had a chance in the first half but his header from a must-score position was kept out by Burnley’s goalkeeper.

Ralf Rangnick introduced Cristiano Ronaldo late on in the game at the expense of Edinson Cavani but the Portuguese start couldn’t restore Manchester United’s lead despite having two heading chances.

 

After the final whistle, Ronaldo, as usual, stormed out of Turf Moor after the tie ended in a 1-1 draw.

Normally, the Red Devils would stay behind after the final whistle to applaud their travelling fans but since Ronaldo returned back to Old Trafford, he’s stormed out of the pitch more times than he had applauded the fans.

It’s obvious he wants to show his frustration of not getting the win by heading straight to the tunnel but some Manchester United legends have since called him out for that behaviour.

After failing to score upon his cameo, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has now gone five matches without a goal.

That’s the first time since 2010 the 37-year-old has experienced such disappointing record.
