This was the warning that Dwight Yorke gave to Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez through an interview with Neil Custis of The Sun.
Yorke, who was top scorer in the Red Devils’ greatest season back in 1998-99, was not impressed by the way Ronaldo behaved after he was subbed during Manchester United's 2-0 victory over Manchester City this past weekend.
Yorke said: “When you look at what is happening at United — going for the title and in the Champions League final — everything is great."
“Then you get someone behaving like that."
“To throw away his tracksuit top and huff and puff is uncalled for and out of order, there is no need."
“The manager will not be happy. He is the manager, he makes the call."
“You can go and see him in his office if you have a grievance but to act like that in front of millions of people will offend Sir Alex.”
Yorke warned: “The fans will always be on Fergie’s side, there is always going to be one winner. You don’t want to upset him in the manner Ronaldo did. The manager makes these decisions for a reason and he doesn’t often get it wrong."
Yorke also had advice for Tevez, who he feels should take a leaf out of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s book rather than moan about spending so much time on the bench. The Norwegian was a Red Devils supersub and has gone down in legend as a result.
Yorke said: “The problem is that Carlos has arrived at a time when Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo are flying."
“Ole Solskjaer used to come in and score goals and when crunch games came he could be back on the bench."
“Ole was not happy but he accepted it and, when he was called up, he was ready to go."
“The boss doesn’t think, ‘Poor lad, let’s give him a game’."
“It has to be justified and fit into his planning."
“The club is always going to be bigger than one individual — Ronaldo and Tevez need to understand that.”
