In the wake of Portugal’s elimination in the World Cup quarter-finals by Morocco (0-1), Cristiano Ronaldo’s wife and sister took to social networks to criticize Fernando Santos’ choices.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s entourage struggles with Portugal’s elimination in the quarter-finals of the World Cup by Morocco (0-1), while the five-time Golden Ball only came in the 51st minute. His companion Georgina Rodriguez and one of his sisters, Elma, violently attacked coach Fernando Santos, as in the round of 16 where he was already a substitute.
“You can’t underestimate the best player in the world”
“Today your friend and coach made a bad decision, Georgina writes on his Instagram account. This friend for whom you had many words of respect and admiration. The same one, when you entered the field, saw that the game had changed, but it was too late “You can’t underestimate the best player in the world, his most dangerous weapon. And you can’t defend someone who doesn’t deserve it either. Life teaches us lessons. Today we lose and we learn.”
“He killed the man, he killed the Seleçao, he killed a nation! Claims for his part Elma, also on his social networks. We will miss him very much. #FernandoSantosOut”. The Portuguese striker nevertheless took advantage of this meeting to equal the world record number of selections with 196 international matches.
Santos has ‘no regrets’
In a press conference after the game, the Portuguese coach assumes his choices. “I don’t regret it, the team played very well in the game against Switzerland, he said in comments reported by A Bola. Cristiano is a huge player and he arrived when we understood that it was necessary in the game. I have no such regret”. The future of the two men with the Seleçao seems more tense than ever after this poor performance.
