Graham Potter has spoken out on Cristiano Ronaldo's situation at Manchester United ahead of Saturday's clash. The Blues will face United in the Premier League on Saturday, October 22.
Ronaldo is currently having a tough season with the Red Devils. During the summer transfer window, there were rumors that the Portuguese star wants to leave the club. However, the transfer window closed and Ronaldo stayed at United.
He has been struggling to get minutes under Erik ten Hag and during United's 2-0 win over Tottenham on Wednesday, the 37-year-old was left on the bench and before the final whistle, Ronaldo stormed out of the pitch and headed to the locker room.
Following the incident, United shared a statement on Ronaldo which reads: "Cristiano Ronaldo will not be part of the Manchester United squad for this Saturday’s Premier League game against Chelsea. The rest of the squad is fully focused on preparing for that fixture."
And speaking during a press conference ahead of the clash, Potter said: "I can't really comment because I don't know the ins and outs. He's taken his stance and then you need the club to support. From the outside, that's what has happened.
"It's difficult for me to comment because I don't want to go off headlines. Part of the job is to take some decisions that are difficult but that's normal."
