Fernando Santos, coach of the Portuguese national team, revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo, the captain of the team, has the personality and capabilities necessary to deal with any pressure he is exposed to.

Ronaldo, the player who scored the most international goals in the world, had entered the World Cup with an unknown future, after a fiery meeting with the media, Piers Morgan.

Ronaldo, 37, has since left Manchester United and is now without a club for the first time in his career.

Ronaldo scored the goal for Portugal against Ghana in the match that ended with his team’s 3-2 victory last Thursday, becoming the first player to score in five consecutive World Cups.

For his part, Santos ignored what was being said about the Portuguese national team putting a lot of pressure on its captain.

“We have players who can deal with all situations, and they also have to deal with all the pressures they are exposed to,” Santos said in the press conference before facing Uruguay on Monday.

He added, “They express themselves in specific ways. There are players who are more extroverted and there are others who are introverted. The most important thing is that they play together as a group and play together as a team.”

And he added, “As for Cristiano, I have known him since he was 19 years old. We have other players who share the same personality.”

“He’s gained a lot of experience little by little, and he understands this pressure, but we have other players in mind, not just Cristiano Ronaldo,” Santos added.
