Did Cristiano Ronaldo accidentally spit on Manchester United teammate Elanga?

During Manchester United’s Premier League match against Southampton, Cristiano Ronaldo appeared to accidentally spit on teammate Anthony Elanga in a bizarre incident at Old Trafford.

Manchester United could only come away with a frustrating 1-1 draw against the Saints, but most of the attention on social media after the game was on Ronaldo’s apparent spit on Elanga.

Standing behind Elanga, the Portuguese star spat to his right hand-side, with the salvia from his mouth landing on the back of Elanga when the pair were walking off the pitch.

There are no signs of the incident being a deliberate act from Ronaldo, and he will be more annoyed that he failed to score for a sixth consecutive game.

The result was a blow for United as they lost ground in the race for a Champions League spot, with two of their main rivals – West Ham and Tottenham – playing on Sunday. United next play on Tuesday against Brighton, as they look to end their winless streak
