Cristiano Ronaldo sad that Portugal don’t trust him

Portugal's Ronaldo sad

Real Madrid’s € 94 million capture has revealed his sadness at the fact that Portuguese people lack of faith in him.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who missed Portugal’s friendly match against Liechtenstein earlier this month, is being receiving a lot of criticism from the Portuguese FA.

His commitment to the national team has been questioned time and times again by the President of the PFA, Gilberto Madail, as well as by Manchester United’s former assistant coach Carlos Queiroz. As regards to all the negative judgments over his personality, Cristiano Ronaldo declared:

“I just want to be more respected. I played for the national team one day after my father passed away. People do not see those things.”

Indeed, Cristiano Ronaldo played for Portugal just one day after his daddy died. Ronaldo, 19 at that time, powered his country to a memorable 7-1 victory over Russia as Portugal cruised on their way to Germany 2006.

Ronaldo continued:

“I am very sad to know that the Portuguese people have doubts about what I am, what I was and what I will be for the national team.”

Earlier this year, Cristiano Ronaldo was criticized by a member of FC Porto’s board. The Portugal captain was ironically taunted after he scored a wonder goal for Manchester United against Porto in the quarterfinals of the Champions League. Cristiano Ronaldo is struggling to find the back of the net for Portugal who are in a critical state in the qualifiers for South Africa 2010. Critiques paint Ronaldo as a selfish player who is either unable or unwilling to perform wonders for his national team.

“Of course I did not like those critiques,” Ronaldo said. “Those were very bad critiques. I do not know why they do it, the press, even the president and Queiroz.”

“I think they know me very well, they know who I am and so it makes me really sad that people doubt what I have, but okay, there are people like this.”

Cristiano Ronaldo reached the highest levels in club football with Manchester United when he won trophies like the Champions League and the Fifa World Club Cup in Japan. Can he influence the Portuguese team with this kind of success and offer the country its first ever major trophy?
