Whatever occurs to the National Team on this remaining part of the World Cup, whether or not it’s eradicated in the present day by Switzerland or consecrated as France’s successor on December 18, one factor is already sure: the press convention held yesterday by Fernando Santos, within the preview of in the present day’s match will without end mark Portugal’s go to to Qatar, in addition to the ultimate a part of (*10*) Ronaldo’s profession. The coach wanted simply seven phrases to precise what he felt when he noticed and heard Ronaldo’s line throughout his substitution in opposition to Uruguay: “I did not prefer it in any respect, I did not prefer it in any respect…” Neither the coach nor the bulk. of the 26 gamers they favored that they’re in Qatar representing Portugal. If some time in the past he was Ronaldo and 10 others on the sector, now he might develop into Ronaldo and 25 others.
Until a couple of months in the past, those that criticized the captain of the National Team have been solely the supporters of the Argentine Messi and a couple of Portuguese fringes who, whether or not they have been followers of Benfica or Porto, didn’t like that the success of the Madeira participant was so distinguished in world soccer . However, Ronaldo continued to attain objectives, each for membership and nationwide staff, so all of the tantrums or rudeness that, right here and there, was identified to him, some rightly, some probably not, they have been rapidly forgotten.
Erik Ten Hag
An equally controversial return to Manchester United adopted, the place he spent six of one of the best years of his profession. Ronaldo landed like an alien and whether it is true that he continued to attain objectives like few, he reached a degree the place it appeared that he was beginning to come into battle with the entire world. Until, in April of this yr, the Red Devils employed (*25*) Erik Ten Hag as coach. At the identical time, (*10*) Ronaldo was going via troublesome occasions, particularly in his private life, with the loss of life of a son throughout childbirth.
Months later, in August, the season began and it quickly grew to become clear that CR7 wished to go away Manchester. However, he didn’t obtain any fascinating proposals and needed to keep on the membership, regardless of the a number of bluffs he did. Ten Hag did not prefer it and examined Ronaldo’s persona, not giving him the title or bringing him in close to the top of video games. CR7 could not stand the stress, refusing to return on in opposition to Tottenham with two minutes remaining, leaving the stadium earlier than the staff even received to the dressing room, and later, earlier than kick-off ‘this World Cup, he gave the controversial interview that world soccer lovers heard.
At the National Team, after three days, he attended a press convention and spoke to journalists. Among different issues, he made a request to the journalists: “I ask you to not ask questions on me to the gamers who come right here to speak to you. Talk in regards to the World Cup, his profession, his golf equipment. I’m shielded, no downside, and I discover it annoying simply asking questions on myself. My case is closed.”
The matter surrounding CR7’s ego was not, nevertheless, closed, as was seen within the controversial celebrations of Portugal’s first aim in opposition to Uruguay. Ronaldo knew he hadn’t touched the ball, however obsessive about breaking Eusebio’s World Cup goalscoring file, he hinted that the aim was his. It was not, as FIFA would affirm, via Adidas.
Finally, he arrived in South Korea and the controversial phrases directed at Fernando Santos. Something like this: “You’re in a c…… hurry to get me out, f…-..”. Ronaldo, 37, with 20 within the prime flight and 15 as a worldwide hypermedia determine, is aware of that for the 90 minutes he has tv cameras targeted solely on himself and subsequently couldn’t and mustn’t have reached, minutes after the match , to say that these phrases have been for a Korean participant. They weren’t. The later ones, sure, have been for a Korean, however the first ones have been for Fernando Santos. The nationwide coach, when commenting on the controversial phrases, was unaware of the controversial phrase addressed to him, since he didn’t understand, like the weather linked to the Portuguese entourage, the phrase. It was a lot later, when televisions started to point out photos with the sturdy and well-understood sentence, that Fernando Santos felt uncomfortable.
And yesterday, at a press convention, he reacted when requested what he considered these phrases: “Let’s divide it into two components. First I went to the flash and then to the convention. What he mentioned is that there on the sector I did not hear something, I used to be distant, I simply noticed him arguing with the Korean participant. Then I noticed it on TV and I did not prefer it in any respect, I actually did not prefer it in any respect.” He might have hidden, however he clarified what he felt on the captain’s phrases. Then he added: “From then on, these issues are settled at house, they’re settled, they’re all targeted and obtainable for the sport. [com a Suíça]?? Will you be on prime? “I solely give the staff to the stadium, to the dressing rooms, it is at all times been like that. If not, the matter is over, it’s at all times resolved at house, I repeat”.
It is very unlikely, nevertheless, that the matter is over. It will probably be a stone positioned within the relationship between the 2, as it is going to be within the relationship between Ronaldo and Carlos Queiroz, the sentence uttered after the elimination of Portugal within the 2010 World Cup, after defeating Spain within the spherical of 16: “Question Carlos what occurs occurred…”
