The Portuguese star's sister came to his defense following the outburst against Serbia: "There are quite a few TV experts who dared to criticize Ronaldo's act. It's just a shame. He defended his homeland so much with his teeth and nails."
The nurse stood by his side
The storm around Cristiano Ronaldo is still in full swing.
The undisputed star of the Portuguese team managed to steal the show on Saturday following the throwing of the captain's armband at the end of the draw (2: 2) Serbia. A day after the outburst, it was announced that the star could be punished by FIFA after the referee did not approve Portugal's legal goal Time, and last night coach Fernando Santos responded and made it clear that at least for him there is no danger that Ronaldo will part with the captain's film.
Either way, this morning (Tuesday) joined Saga, Ronaldo's sister, Catia Aviero, who posted an angry post to Instagram: "Everyone knows Ronaldo is a symbol of all of Portugal. It's no secret that our country was robbed in a game against Serbia following a major scandal. Cristiano conquered "The goal at the last minute and was supposed to bring us a big victory. He demonstrated to the referee how the ball crossed the line by 30 centimeters and went to the locker room because this referee was not worth any reaction."
"Cristiano managed to overcome the anger and threw the captain's ribbon on the grass," Aviero added, "he defended his homeland so much with his teeth and nails. His intention was to throw the film straight into the judge's face for what he did to us. But despite the restraint he showed, "A lot of people are disgusted by what happened, there are quite a few TV experts who dared to criticize Ronaldo's gesture. It's just a shame."
Yesterday, coach Fernando Santos calmed the spirits: "Ronaldo will continue to be captain of the Portugal national team. The captain's armband will not be taken from him. If he had insulted the coach or his teammates, then maybe we would have thought in that direction. It was a moment of great frustration that could happen "Also for me. Cristiano was the first to admit that he was wrong, it happens to anyone who always wants to win. It happened to him and it can happen to anyone. He was the first to realize that he did not have to do what he did."
