“I don’t feel uncomfortable,” Fernandes instructed reporters. “I don’t have to select a facet. It was a privilege to play within the nationwide workforce with Ronaldo and on the membership it was a dream come true and I’ve at all times mentioned that.
“Cristiano has always been an inspiration for me. It was a dream but we know nothing lasts forever. And now Cristiano took a decision for his life and his career and we have to respect every decision.”
Portugal will kick off their World Cup marketing campaign with a match in opposition to Ghana on Thursday. Ronaldo and co will then tackle Uruguay of their subsequent group-stage match 4 days later.
