PFA disappointed with Cristiano Ronaldo’s actions

Professional Footballers' Association chief executive Gordon Taylor says that he is disappointed witht the way Manchester United winger Cristiano Ronaldo behaved prior to Wayne Rooney's red card against Portugal.

Taylor told Sky Sports News: “It’s always disappointing to see players from one team looking to get players from another sent off, be it the Premier League, be it the Football League, be it a World Cup.

“But it’s doubly disappointing when they are colleagues from the same club side. From my point of view, that was hard to stomach.”

He added: “There have been leaks and rumours that he’s wanted to leave and go to Real Madrid beforehand and people will be thinking this is part of that equation.”
