Cristiano Ronaldo claimed that he was involved in a verbal altercation with a South Korean player who criticized him for not leaving the field quickly enough when he was substituted during Portugal’s World Cup loss on Friday by a score of 2-1.
According to Cristiano Ronaldo, he had a verbal altercation with a South Korean player who had criticized him for not leaving the field quickly enough when he was replaced in Portugal’s 2-1 World Cup defeat on Friday.
Ronaldo walked slowly off when his number was called in the 65th minute, despite the fact that South Korea made it to the last 16 and Portugal remained at the top of Group H.
It took place when I was replaced. Ronaldo told reporters, “I told him to be quiet because he hasn’t got any authority.”I was instructed to leave more quickly by the Korean player.
He was told to be quiet by me.
“The referee was the one who had to tell me if I wasn’t moving fast enough. There shouldn’t have been any disagreement because it seemed to come out of nowhere.”
“Everyone could see that he was enraged toward the Korean player,” Portugal’s coach Fernando Santos stated.
“The player was making fun of him and telling him to leave (get off the field), and everyone saw that, so he was furious.
“When I saw the interaction with the Korean player, I had no doubt about it.”
Hwang In-beom, a South Korean midfielder, endeavored to make light of the debate.
He stated, “I didn’t see it because I was too tired.”I have nothing to say because I was looking at the ground and didn’t see it.”
