One of the most difficult moments of Cristiano Ronaldo’s career is coming. In the current season, he could score only once in 10 matches played at the club and national team levels.
The 37-year-old superstar became the object of criticism, especially because of the match between Portugal and Spain (0:1). Even in his homeland, where the media and people idolized him, he seems to be treated differently. The headline of the Portuguese newspaper A Bola says a lot about the situation: “Less Ronaldo, more Portugal.”
An Alvaro Morata goal saw Spain beat Portugal in a crucial match to reach the Nations League Final Four, prompting heavy criticism for CR7, this time from his compatriots and his friendly media. The gesture of Cristiano, who took off the captain’s armband at the end of the match and threw it away, made the situation even worse. The head coach Fernando Santos defended Ronaldo to the media: “He had good moments and he couldn’t use them, but it happens in football.”
Poll about Ronaldo
However, not everyone shares Santosh’s position. A Bola polled whether it’s time for Ronaldo to retire. 57% of respondents answered positively.
Cristiano was defended by his sister, Catia Aveiro, who posted a rather harsh statement on her Instagram story: “Today it doesn’t surprise me at all. The Portuguese spit in the plate they eat from. It’s always been like that. I’ll always be with you, my king! We need to give a hand to the person who He always did his best for Portugal. But the Portuguese are sick, evil, stupid, always ungrateful. This guy is on his knees and there is no one to help him.”
We remind you that Cristiano Ronaldo has been playing in the Portuguese national team since 2003 and has scored 117 goals in 191 matches.
