Cristiano Ronaldo was in the news again during the Qatar 2022 World Cup, but not because of something that happened on the field, but because of Manchester United’s decision to end the contract that united them. Last Tuesday, the English club announced the news, after reaching a mutual agreement, a circumstance that was foreseeable, after the striker’s controversial interview with Piers Morgan, where he criticized managers, coaches and even teammates.

The determination of the ‘Red Devils’ was revealed just two days before Portugal’s World Cup debut and there was concern from fans about the lack of concentration of the experienced striker. However, the coach of the ‘Lusos’, Fernando Santos, sent a message of calm.

“We have not talked about this in the group, not even he (Cristiano) has talked about it. The important thing is that the footballers are convinced of what they have to do, of what their goals are”were the first words of the strategist at a press conference.

In the same way, Fernando Santos downplayed events outside the World Cup and assured that the squad is fully focused on the group stage. “What we want is to make the Portuguese enjoy themselves, that is our mission. The rest is secondary”highlighted the DT.
