The images of a furious Cristiano Ronaldo leaving the field before the end of the match between Serbia and Portugal (2-2) have been around the world. Furious after the referee after a valid goal not accepted at the very end of the match, CR7 was angry, going so far as to throw his captain’s armband on the ground. But if some have criticized the behavior of the Lusitanian star, coach Fernando Santos has made it clear that the Juventus player will remain the captain of the Seleção.
“Cristiano is a national example, you wrote it a thousand times. All the players who come to the rallies say he is an example. Every newcomer who arrives asks, “So what is Cristiano like?” And they all answer the same thing: this is an example. Work, training. He is an example for everyone, even in his social life. If Cristiano had offended the national coach, his colleagues or the Federation by a thoughtless gesture, then yes, it would be necessary to think about it (to withdraw the armband to him). But none of this happened, ” he said at a press conference.
