Bruno Fernandes reacts to Cristiano Ronaldo’s bombshell interview and handshake incident

Bruno Fernandes reacts to Cristiano Ronaldo’s bombshell interview and handshake incident

Bruno Fernandes responded evasively to Cristiano Ronaldo’s explosive interview with Piers Morgan.

Recently, Ronaldo spoke with Piers Morgan. Uncensored criticism of Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag, former teammates Wayne Rooney and Gary Neville, and the club’s owners, the Glazer family.

Ronaldo also claimed that United’s young players do not care enough and do not pay attention to him.

The 37-year-old took a jab at Ralf Ragnick, was fined £1 million for the interview, and an alleged awkward interaction with United and Portugal teammate Fernandes went viral as the two reunited for the World Cup on Monday.

When questioned about the incident and Ronaldo’s comments, Fernandes informed Sky Sports: “I didn’t read the interview.

“As I said before, now it’s the national team. It’s Portugal. The coach made a point that it’s us. He made that point since I came to the national team in 2017.

“That is still clear. In his mind, the main thing is national team. We have to be focused on the World Cup.

“Cristiano has done really well to play at five World Cups – this will be his fifth time. Everyone is ready for that and everyone wants the best for the team.”

When asked about the handshake, Fernandes responded, “I was watching one of the channels that said it was cold and bad.

“They went on a commercial break, the national team sent them footage with the sound, the sound revealed that he was joking with me.

“If they explained what was really true in that video, people would know. Manchester United will be my focus after the World Cup.

“I have no problem with anyone. I do my job. A manager once told me, the only thing you can control is yourself.”

United, however, has refuted Ronaldo’s account of events after the striker criticized the club’s handling of his absence throughout the summer.

Ronaldo, who was desperate to leave Manchester United in the summer, has been linked with a January move to Bayern Munich, while his previous club Sporting Lisbon remains interested in signing him despite the interview.
