Cristiano Ronaldo’s Girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez Lashes Out On Portugal’s Manager: In recent weeks, Cristiano Ronaldo has been in the news more for his exploits off the field than for his performances on the field. The 37-year-old forward was benched by Portugal coach Fernando Santos during their 6-1 win over Switzerland. Cristiano Ronaldo was not included in the starting XI. His girlfriend Georgina Rodríguez didn’t like Ronaldo not starting the match. Georgina Rodriguez launched a scathing attack on the Portugal manager in her Instagram post.
The Portuguese star’s partner wrote in an Instagram post, ‘Congratulations Portugal. All eyes were on you when the 11 players sang the national anthem. What a shame that I could not enjoy the game of the best player in the world for 90 minutes.
Georgina Rodriguez wrote, ‘Fans haven’t stopped asking about you and chanting your name. But God and your dear friend Fernando sat hand in hand and we were forced to shiver another night. By the time the football star entered the match (72nd minute), Portugal had taken a 4–1 lead. The crowd at Lusail Stadium was chanting, Ronaldo! Ronaldo!
Georgina Rodriguez further wrote, ‘Congratulations to you Santos (Fernando Santos) for ignoring the demands of the fans. After this the crowd also cursed you. Ronaldo, wearing a yellow substitute jersey, was emotionless in the dugout as the crowd booed him.
Georgia Rodriguez wrote in her post, ‘ When he was finally sent to the field in the 72nd minute, the fans were furious. Pepe wrapped the captain’s armband around Ronaldo’s bicep even before Ronaldo ran onto the field.
Ronaldo also made a cryptic post praising Portugal’s ‘talent and potential’. Ronaldo wrote, ‘Amazing day for Portugal, with a historic result in the biggest competition in world football. Superb performance by a team full of talent and youth. Congratulations to our national team. The dream is alive! till the end! Come on, Portugal.’
