The Manchester side team defeat their London rivals by a dominating 2-0 margin.
Following this fiasco of a tantrum, Erik Ten Haag, the manager of United, was asked about how he will approach the player from now onwards. And we finally have the answer.

Following this statement, the star finally decided to break the silence. The forward wrote on his Instagram account: “As I’ve always done throughout my career, I try to live and play respectfully towards my colleagues, my adversaries and my coaches. That hasn’t changed. I haven’t changed.
“I’m the same person and the same professional that I’ve been for the last 20 years playing elite football, and respect has always played a very important role in my decision-making process. I started very young, the older and most experienced players’ examples were always very important to me.”
It will be interesting to see how things proceed from here onward. Will this be the final nail in the coffin for Manchester United’s Legend or there’s a twist in the tale to come.
