Bruno Fernandes is full of praise for the Manchester United legendary striker Cristiano Ronaldo
On Friday, Ronaldo, 38, scored twice as Portugal defeated Slovakia to advance directly to the 2024 European Championship. His incredible record for his country increased to 125 goals from 202 appearances.
Bruno said (h/t PortuGoal):
“Do I have the notion that I’m playing alongside a history maker? No, I don’t have a notion, I have the certainty! We’re all aware of it. We all understand the force and impact that Ronaldo has, the force and the impact that Ronaldo has had on the future of many of us Portuguese players, the opportunities that he’s created for the future generations of players, the way others began to look at Portugal.”
The 5-time Ballon d’Or winner might be ageing, but he’s still a threat for his club and country. Ronaldo’s second stint at Old Trafford might not have ended well, but according to his former United teammate Fernandes, he still has much to offer.
With superstars like Ronaldo and Fernandes, Portugal are in a strong position for upcoming competitions. Ronaldo, with his unmatched striking abilities, and Bruno, with his midfield mastery form a powerful duo. They’re working towards creating more football history for Portugal.
One of Ronaldo’s most admired qualities is his versatility. Over the years, he’s shown the ability to adapt his game to any league, squad, or circumstance. Fernandes greatly admires this adaptability.
Fernandes also respects Ronaldo for his unwavering spirit and relentless pursuit of goals, both literally and symbolically. Ronaldo’s consistent ability to find the back of the net in the fast-paced world of football showcases his brilliance.
Players like Ronaldo are a rare breed, as Fernandes rightly pointed out. But when they come along, they elevate the game to new heights. The world eagerly anticipates the emergence of individuals who can carry on Ronaldo’s legacy.
