‘I won the World Cup, he didn’t..’ – Former Chelsea defender tears down Cristiano Ronaldo
Former Chelsea center-back, Frank Lebouef has responded harshly to Cristiano Ronaldo’s fans. The Portuguese great has never won a World Cup, as the Frenchman said, despite having an illustrious career. Fans’ anger and dissatisfaction with ESPN’s coverage of the Euro qualifiers caused the issue to arise. Scotland defeated Spain in an incredible 2-0 triumph. “Scott McTominay currently has as many Euro 2024 qualifying goals as Cristiano Ronaldo,” Lebouef was quoted as saying on GiveMeSport.
The supporters of the former Manchester United striker are not happy with the tweet but the defender has replied to them brilliantly. “I had two guys saying that I was a dumb *bleep*. That I didn’t understand anything, that Ronaldo showed us ESPN pundits that we understand nothing about football because he scored a goal and he was fantastic and that I would never be at Ronaldo’s level and I’ve never been at Ronaldo’s level. And I say, ‘Well, you know, you’re right. I’ve never been at his level I won the World Cup, he didn’t,” the defender asserted.
The atmosphere in the national team has always been good: Bruno Fernandes
The 38-year-old has had a fantastic week, but the recent events have definitely put a halt to it. He scored a free-kick and a penalty against Liechtenstein which took his tally of goals for Portugal to 122 goals overall. He also surpassed Kuwait’s Bader Al-Mutawa, who had 198 appearances, to set a new record for most international caps.
Manchester United‘s midfielder, Bruno Fernandez disputed Cristiano Ronaldo’s assertion that Roberto Martinez, the team’s new manager, had brought fresh start into the squad. “It’s a new chapter for everyone, for the players, the staff and the country. We feel good energy. It’s a breath of fresh air,” stated the Al-Nassr striker stated when asked about Martinez’s impact in the dressing room.
“No, it’s just a new coach with new ideas. There is no breath of fresh air at all. It’s just a transition period. The atmosphere in the national team has always been good. There’s never been anything that wasn’t fresh of the air, so I think it’s just new dynamics, new coach, and you have to assimilate his ideas,” Fernandez was quoted as saying on Portuguese channel RTP3 who has an opposite view that of Ronaldo.
