PFA disappointed with Cristiano Ronaldo’s actions

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.”
