At the press conference to review the match against South Korea, a Korean journalist asked Fernando Santos about the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo… in a match in 2019.
Then he was the captain of the national team in the service of Juventus. It was pre-season and Cristiano Ronaldo did not play much to the dismay of the 65,000 spectators who attended the World Cup Stadium in Seoul on July 26, 2019.
CR7 may not play again on Friday against South Korea and Fernando Santos was quickly asked about it.
Ronaldo did not go to South Korea with the Portuguese national team. This happened with Juventus, so I don’t know how to answer it,” he shot after saying he did not understand the question. “What I can say is that I have great respect for Korea, its national team and its people, just like Cristiano Ronaldo,” he concluded.
It should be noted that the local authorities at that time opened an investigation into possible fraud by TheFasta, the organizer of the match between Juventus and the selection of the best K-League players since then. Ronaldo will be contracted to play at least 45 minutes.
