Bruno Fernandes has disagreed with former Manchester United teammate Cristiano Ronaldo that Portugal’s new manager Roberto Martinez has been a ‘breath of fresh air’.
After scoring four goals as Portugal thrashed both Liechtenstein and Luxembourg, Ronaldo claimed new Portugal manager Martinez has been a ‘breath of fresh air’.
Ronaldo said: “It’s a new chapter for everyone, for the players, the staff and the country.
“We feel good energy. It’s a breath of fresh air.”
However, Fernandes disagreed with Ronaldo, telling RTP3: “It’s just a new coach with new ideas. 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 of the air, so I think it’s just new dynamics, new coach, and you have to assimilate his ideas.”
