Revealed: What Ronaldo said to Bruno Fernandes during awkward handshake

Revealed: What Ronaldo said to Bruno Fernandes during awkward handshake

Joao Mario, a winger for Portugal, said that Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes are still friends, even though they had a strange handshake when they met for Portugal duty before the World Cup.

He has called the situation “banter” and said that Ronaldo is “quite fine” as the team gets ready for their first game in Group H on November 24 against Ghana.

Since the bombshell interview clips came out on Sunday, this was the first time a Manchester United player had been seen greeting the 37-year-old.

Many fans thought that Fernandes’s suspicious behavior was a response to Ronaldo’s comments about the club, but Mario said that the two were just joking around and Ronaldo was “focused” on the World Cup “He [Ronaldo] is always happy when he’s with the national team,” he told reporters.

“I’ve seen yesterday he’s quite fine as always and as he said before for him it’s always a pleasure to be here. He’s totally focused on the national team and for sure he’s going to be a big help for us in this World Cup.”

Speaking about the interaction between Ronaldo and Fernandes which has gone viral, he added: “I was in the locker room at that moment, I saw pictures. It was a joke between them. Bruno Fernandes was one of the last to arrive. Cristiano asked: ‘Did you come by boat?’”

Several experts have said that Ronaldo’s interview with Morgan should not have been released so soon after United beat Fulham 2-1. Jamie Carragher is one of them. He called it “bizarre” and “totally out of order.”

But Mario said he didn’t mind the timing, suggesting that Ronaldo gets all the attention no matter what. “For us it’s the same, the headlines are always about him so for us it’s quite the same,” he explained. “So I don’t see a problem with the timing because everyone always speaks about Cristiano Ronaldo so it’s fine for us.”
