CRISTIANO RONALDO has sensationally been AXED by Erik ten Hag for Saturday's game against Chelsea.
Ronnie has also been ordered to train by himself at Carrington after refusing to come on against Tottenham last night.
Ronnie, 37, was seen storming down the tunnel at Old Trafford as his side led 2-0 with injury time still to play.
It later emerged Ronaldo didn't even go to the dressing room, instead opting to leave the stadium before the final whistle had even blown.
And he has now been accused of REFUSING to come off the bench against Antonio Conte's side in a clear act of defiance.
Boss Erik ten Hag warned Ronaldo last night that he was ready to take action.

The strong reaction appears to show the club have backed Ten Hag in the row.
Goals from Fred and Bruno Fernandes saw United record a famous win over title-chasers Tottenham.
And fans were left buzzing after a high-energy performance from all 11 players on the pitch.
However, there was no sign of Ronaldo as Ten Hag made several changes late on.
Supporters were then left shocked as the Portugal legend was seen making his way down the tunnel despite the clock only being in the 89th minute.
And Ten Hag was far from pleased when asked about the incident afterwards.
He said: "We will deal with that on Thursday. I saw him leaving but I didn’t speak to him after.
