Cristiano Ronaldo's Reaction Straight After Full-Time Whistle vs Burnley Has Left Fans Frustrated

Cristiano Ronaldo has been criticised by fans after he ran straight off the pitch at the final whistle of Manchester United's disappointing 1-1 draw with Burnley.

Ralf Rangnick's side were on top in the first period and they made that dominance pay when Paul Pogba bagged his first goal of the season with 18 minutes on the clock.

United continued to cruise. In fact, they would have been home and dry had it not been for two first-half goals being disallowed. But relegation strugglers Burnley looked a completely different team after the break.

Just two minutes into the second half, Jay Rodriguez was played through by new signing Wout Weghorst before slotting past David de Gea to score his 100th career goal.

United never really got going again after that.

It was another opportunity missed for the Reds and immediately after the full-time, second-half substitute Cristiano Ronaldo ran straight down the tunnel - a moment that caused frustration amongst fans.

While the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Jadon Sancho and Harry Maguire applauded the vocal United away support afterwards, Ronaldo was, of course, in the Turf Moor dressing room.

His actions certainly sparked a reaction on social media.

One Twitter user wrote: "Ronaldo has an unreal mentality and drawing at Burnley, and going on his worst goal drought for 10 years, will undoubtedly frustrate him. But, the away fans don’t deserve that.

"Regardless of your frustrations you come over and thank the support. They were brilliant."

Another commented: "Didn't go over to the fans again shocking."

A third said: "Don’t care who you are or how good you are, applauding your fans in the away end that have paid to travel and watch you play shite, is the minimum. Child."

United interim Ralf Rangnick, meanwhile, criticised his players for playing 'tiki-taka football' after they failed to score the winner against bottom of the league Burnley.

"We knew they would come out in the second half in a more aggressive way and the only thing I can complain the team about was we were not aggressive enough in the first 20 minutes of the second half," he told BBC.

"[In the second half] We were playing tiki-taka football in our own half and not direct enough. We had the counter-attack but gave the ball away too easily in their box."
