Ruben Amorim commented on the situation experienced by the Portuguese champion at the World Cup
Fernando Santos’ decision to bench Cristiano Ronaldo against Switzerland to world Cup it is still on the agenda of the Portuguese media. The last to be questioned on the matter was the Sporting coach, Rúben Amorim. In an interview after the victory over Rio Ave in the League Cup, he was asked if he agreed with the coach’s choice Portugal🇧🇷
– You already know the answer, these are situations that coaches have to handle. I have no opinion to give on the coach’s choices. I’ve had very controversial choices when I keep certain players or when I leave them. All coaches face this and they have to decide at the right moment, according to their ideas – said Rúben Amorim.
The Sporting coach also analyzed Cristiano Ronaldo’s team. For the commander, the moment must be complicated for the idol of Portugal.
– What I’m saying is that it must be difficult to be Cristiano Ronaldo right now. Sometimes it’s easy to criticize, Ronaldo does things badly, he does things right, but it must be very difficult for someone like him to deal with all this,” he said.
Furthermore, the theme has not escaped the Portuguese team in the Cup. In a recent post-match interview, Pepe said CR7 understands the importance of the team right now.
– He (Cristiano) knows very well that the most important thing is us, the team. What happened tonight was the coach’s choice and we have to respect it – he said -.
The star’s sister, Kátia Aveiro, spoke of “ingratitude” for Cristiano who did not start against Switzerland as a starter. She expressed herself through social media.
– I really wanted him to come home, leave the national team and sit next to us so that we could hug him and say that everything is fine. Remind him what he has already conquered and which house he came from. I really wanted him not to go there anymore. You are big and the little ones don’t realize how big you are. Come home. Which is where they understand you, where they embrace you. As always. Where you have all the gratitude. And not ingratitude. Thank you, Ronaldo – wrote the star’s sister.
Portugal are back on the field next Saturday, at 12 (Brasilia time), when they face Morocco for a place among the four best selections of the World Cup. The match, valid for the quarter-finals, takes place at Al Thumama, in Doha.
