Cristiano Ronaldo, the captain of Portugal, has refuted claims that he threatened to quit the team before the 2022 World Cup.
The 37-year-old claimed “external forces” are attempting to disband the group in a social media post.
This group is too strong and cohesive to be dispersed by outside forces. a country that is too bold to be scared by any foe.
Ronaldo commented, “This is a genuine squad, that will battle for the dream to the finish.
Ronaldo informed Fernando Santos, the head coach, that he might leave Qatar after learning he wouldn’t be playing in the match against Switzerland in the round of 16, according to Record.
The former Manchester United attacker reportedly ultimately became more composed after realizing how his departure may affect the squad.
These assertions have also been refuted by the Portuguese Football Federation.
