Bruno Fernandes has claimed criticising Portugal international teammate and former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo spurs him on to perform better.

Ahead of the Portugal vs Ghana World Cup game, Manchester United cancelled the contract of Ronaldo following his interview with Piers Morgan.

Ronaldo scored from the penalty spot as Portugal got off to a winning start in Qatar with a 3-2 victory over Ghana. 

“I think Cristiano likes to work under criticism from everyone,” Fernandes told reporters: “I pray for all of you to keep doing that because it gets the best of himself when you guys do that.”
