Solskjaer was criticised for starting the Portuguese superstar on the bench for their 1-1 draw with Everton before the international break.
The Norwegian has defended his decision to rest Cristiano Ronaldo, insisting that Sir Alex Ferguson also left out his Manchester United stars at times.
But the Sun have reported that Ronaldo was disappointed for being left on the bench.
They said that a source from the club said Solskjaer presumed Ronaldo was tired after the Champions League game with Villarreal, so decided to rest him.
Ronaldo reportedly said he would tell Solskjaer when he wasn't fit, wanted to start every game and felt Manchester United need to play their most important players in all matches if they are to win trophies.
