Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has disagreed with Cristiano Ronaldo’s claim that there is a breath of fresh air in the Portugal national team.
Portugal sacked Fernando Santos as their manager after the World Cup, and Roberto Martinez stepped in his place.
Santos and Ronaldo, his ‘friend, clashed at the World Cup after the coach decided to keep the 38-year-old on the bench.
Portugal won their first game under Martinez with a 4-0 margin over Liechtenstein and followed it up with another thumping 6-0 win against Luxembourg on Sunday
Ronaldp recently stated that Martinez has added a breath of fresh air to the team, but Fernandes said the team only underwent a transition.
“No, it’s just a new coach with new ideas,” Fernandes told RTP3. 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 in the air, so I think it’s just new dynamics, a new coach, and you have to assimilate his ideas.”
