According to a report via The Sun, Paul Ince reckons Cristiano Ronaldo sorts out his own conduct before criticizing his teammates.

“People were saying he would be great for the club, the players, and the youngsters.
“We thought that would be the case but the example he is setting, by throwing his toys out of the pram, is a bad one.
“As we’ve seen on numerous occasions - running down the tunnel, not clapping fans, sulking - it’s not a good example to set."
