Manchester United have been saved several times this season by Cristiano Ronaldo, who returned to Old Trafford to bring the team back to glory. However, in these first months, it has been difficult for the team, especially in the defensive aspect and the criticism against the Portuguese has appeared. Given this, CR7 does not hesitate to answer them.
Strong statements and several phrases dedicated to his critics have appeared this Saturday in an interview that Sky Sports made with Cristiano Ronaldo. In recent weeks, some criticisms have been read and heard against the Portuguese star, whom they accuse of being part of the problem of the little sacrifice in defense that the Manchester United attackers have.
CR7 is questioned about the fact of not collaborating with the pressure or the defense and that has made the player himself explode. «I know when the team needs my help in defense. But my role at the club is to win, to help the team win and score goals and the defensive aspect is part of my job, “he began.
But it did not stop there, he left a strong message to his critics. “People who don’t want to see that are because they don’t like me but to be honest I’m 36 years old and I’ve won everything. Am I going to worry about people saying bad things about me? I get a good night’s sleep and go to bed with a clear conscience. That they continue with that because I will still shut their mouths and win things, “he said.
Despite the fact that they threaten his game, Cristiano understands what these sayings mean against him. Criticism is always part of the business. It does not worry me. And I see it as a good thing to be honest. If they care about me or talk about me, it is because they know my potential. So it’s OK. I will give you an example: if you are in a school and you are the best student, you ask the worst student if he likes the best … they will tell you that he does not like it, “he said.
And, to close the subject of criticism, he said: «Criticism will always exist here. I don’t hide from it and I don’t really care because I know that football is like that. My reactions are what I feel at that moment. Everybody knows me. I’ve always been like this; I’m not going to change now with my age. I will always give 100 percent for this club and my reactions are part of who I am and I don’t want to upset anyone. I know there will be eyes on me for what I am, what I achieve, what I earn.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored the winning goal in Manchester United’s last Champions League game against Atalanta. However, for the Premier League, they have accumulated three games without winning and face Liverpool this Sunday at Old Trafford. The perfect opportunity to return to leave a message to those who criticize you. (Bolavip)
