World Cup 2022: The cold greeting between Cristiano Ronaldo and one of his Manchester United teammates that tensed the climate in Portugal

Arriving at the Portuguese concentration, Bruno Fernandes expressed his discomfort at the captain's statements regarding the English club and its coach

What seemed to be a moment of celebration turned into an alarm in the concentration of Portugal, one of the selected ones that goes to Qatar to fight for the title. A video from the Portuguese federation showing the squad meeting in Lisbon revealed a moment of tension between captain Cristiano Ronaldo and another of the team's figures, winger Bruno Fernandes.

Ronaldo and Fernandes are teammates at Manchester United. They met again in the locker room of the Portuguese concentration, in Lisbon, prior to a friendly against Nigeria, prior to the departure for Doha. The images are forceful: Ronaldo extends his hand to Fernandes, who greets him coldly and makes a comment that leaves the great symbol of Portuguese football with a disgusted face. Media from that country point out that the episode is a consequence of Ronaldo's extreme statements against Manchester United and his coach, Erik Ten Hag, whom he accuses of having "betrayed" him.

It is common for Cristiano Ronaldo to be in the news for some spectacular goal or breaking records with his metrics, although this second season after his return to United, the news about the Portuguese pointed to internal conflicts or chances of emigrating, such as the versions about contacts with Barcelona, Atlético Madrid , Milan or Napoli.

In the World Cup, the Portuguese team will debut with Ghana on November 24, then they will face Uruguay (November 28) and will close their participation in Group H with South Korea (December 2). Cristiano Ronaldo will arrive as the emblem of his team and main figure.
