Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United interim boss Ralf Rangnick’s relationship is completely fractured as the forward believes the manager is out of his depth.
The German was brought in to turn the Red Devils’ season around following the dismissal of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The relationship between the player and manager is now said to be completely fractured.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner believes Rangnick does not have the ability to manage United and is out of his depth at Old Trafford.
To make matters worse, Rangnick is said to have angered Ronaldo further last Friday, after he accused the forward of not performing in front of goal.
Ronaldo is the club’s top scorer this season but has failed to register a goal in the last five league games and Rangnick appears to be unhappy with the performance.
The 37-year-old has not hesitated to show his frustrations this season either, with his most recent outburst coming against Burnley last week.
Rangnick dropped Ronaldo to the bench in favour of Edinson Cavani midweek but the Portugal international was brought on as a second-half substitute at Turf Moor.

The forward made little impression after replacing Cavani in the 66th minute and after United only managed to scrape a point against rock-bottom Burnley he stormed straight down the tunnel.
Other attempts from elsewhere in the dressing room have been made to undermine Rangnick and his coaching staff.
And last week, it was claimed that some United players refer to Rangnick’s No 2, Chris Armas, as Ted Lasso – the hapless coach in an Apple+ TV series.
