Martín Liberman, one of Cristiano Ronaldo’s staunch defenders, launched a couple of messages via Twitter as soon as Portugal’s elimination in Qatar 2022 was consummated. In his expressions, the Argentine journalist highlighted the striker’s career and, incidentally, criticized the coach Fernando Santos for leaving him among the substitutes against Morocco.
“I come here to say that Fernando Santos is a brute as well as forgetful. Never, ever, could Cristiano be a substitute in a match like today’s.”the communicator said. The coach of the Portuguese, as happened against Switzerland in the round of 16, chose Goncalo Ramos (author of a hat-trick against the Swiss) over the all-time goalscorer of the national team.
Along the same lines, the South American presenter pointed harder against the winning coach of Euro 2016: “The coach believed that every day is carnival. A total no codes. With ‘CR7′ the game changed just like with Leao”he added. The free agent entered in the 51st minute of the commitment, with the favorable 1-0 result for the African representative.
Cristiano Ronaldo, at the top
At 37, everything indicates that the star has played his last World Cup with the national team. It is more, it is possible that the number 7 ends his path with the selection. In this sense, Martín Liberman praised the work carried out by former Manchester United with the Lusitanian elastic since he made his debut.
“Indelible mark. He marked an era of world football. Cristiano is the best player in the history of Portugal. He took his selection to another level. Total crack. Unique. There will be nothing like it for his country ”closed the Argentine on his social networks to once again express respect and admiration for the winner of five Ballon d’Or trophies.
