Speaking at the event, he also gave no air time to Ronaldo’s shock comments from Sunday’s TalkTV interview.
Ten Hag said: “We [the coaches] met in a little bit more relaxed ambient to talk about the game, coaching, managing and training, and to learn from each other.
“So, it is really good. It is also good to meet with UEFA, to give opinions and tell what’s on our minds. It’s about making the game better.”
