Ronaldo was making his first start of the season, but even his presence couldn't stop Brentford from running riot as United lost their first two games of the season for the first time in over 30 years.
A video has now emerged of Ronaldo appearing to refuse to heed assistant head coach Steven McLaren's request for Ronaldo to acknowledge fans after the game.
The Portuguese star then walks straight past his manager and down the tunnel without uttering a word or even a gesture. Football fans were quick to read into this as a huge problem for the club.
Ronaldo has in the past been said to be critical of United's ambitions. If those reports are anything to go by, the former Real Madrid striker might make another attempt to leave before September 1st.
