Attendant at the press conference with his coach Fernando Santos, on the eve of Portugal’s first meeting, this Thursday against Ghana (5 p.m.), Bruno Fernandes was first asked about Cristiano Ronaldo and the situation in Manchester United, who could be sold soon. “Cris hasn’t talked to me about her decision (to leave the club), explained the now ex-teammate of CR7 in club. It’s his personal decision, I respect it. Here we are not talking about that. We’re all about selection, Cris and we all know what it’s like to play in a World Cup. It’s a competition that all players want to play, it’s a dream to play it, and we are completely focused on that. »
Then he admitted with a smile, about Ronaldo’s joke when he arrived at the Portuguese rally (he had asked him if he had arrived by boat to arrive so long after him): “It was for fun, but it wasn’t so funny to me, because I was two hours late”. Both players will start on Thursday. On the other hand Nuno Mendes (muscle pain) is very uncertain.
