A row with a coach, an all-out interview, an exit from the club – it’s a lot to ask of a footballer if these are bad times. But don’t ask Cristiano Ronaldo that. Because it’s when setbacks like this happen that Cristiano really becomes a superhero. There is no such thing as a best time for me. I decide my timing. This is what Cristiano said in an interview with Piers Morgan. Cristiano is to be believed. Because it has been proven many times!
Cristiano has never entered a major tournament with so many problems off the court. At 37, Cristiano is no longer the poster boy of club football. He often doesn’t even get a chance in Manchester United’s starting XI. The same is true with the Portuguese national team. Cristiano’s interview was released at the same time as Portugal beat Nigeria in a World Cup warm-up match in Lisbon. Despite being without Cristiano, Portugal managed to beat the African team 4-0.
There is even a rumor that Cristiano Ronaldo is no longer the best player in the Portugal team. That is by seeing Bruno Fernandes, Cristiano’s teammate at Manchester United, and Bernardo Silva, the star of Manchester City. Cristiano has played 1051 minutes in 16 games for Manchester United this season. In the 10 games played in the Premier League, he was in the first eleven in only 4 games! However, if Portugal coach Fernando Santos dares to bench Cristiano at the World Cup, it will be a big adventure.
Cristiano and United in part
Manchester ∙ Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo and English football club Manchester United have parted ways by mutual consent, the club has announced. Manchester United’s action comes after thirty-seven-year-old Cristiano gave an interview criticizing the club. Rumors are strong that Cristiano will go to English club Chelsea. The rumors are also for the English club Newcastle United, the German club Borussia Dortmund and Sporting Lisbon in Portugal.
Cristiano has been banned
LONDON – Cristiano Ronaldo has been banned for two Premier League games for abusing a fan who was physically challenged after last season’s defeat against Everton. A fine of £50,000 must also be paid. The FA’s ruling is based on the incident that happened on April 9 this year.
