All of Ronaldo’s fans in Portugal have turned against him following his move from Manchester United.
Portuguese reporters were left stunned at the national team’s camp in Qatar yesterday as they observed the behavior of Cristiano Ronaldo following Portugal’s win over Switzerland.
Fernando Santos’ team put in a very impressive performance against Switzerland and did so without Ronaldo, who was dropped to the bench for the last-16 clash following his poor performances in the tournament thus far.
As the star player was a substitute, the normal scenario that plays out the day after a match is that the subs train together while the starting 11 recover with a gym session.
However, Ronaldo reportedly decided against training with the rest of his fellow players on the pitch on Wednesday and took it upon himself to join the gym session instead.
According to the Spanish newspaper Marca, the Portuguese press in the national side’s camp were surprised as they saw Ronaldo involved in the gym session with the starting 11- designed to help them recover ahead of their next match.
Ronaldo is said to be in the perfect physical condition and made the decision himself.
The reason for this is not yet known but it is yet another unusual act performed by the superstar over the last few months.
