The Portuguese international midfielder Bruno Fernandes admitted this Wednesday that he does not have more data that would allow him to unravel more elements of the absence of compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo in Man training. United, where he has yet to perform, missed the English club’s tour of Asia.
“I do not know what is happening: the best thing is to ask him. I do not even want to participate in the situation! We must respect the decision of each person”, said Bruno Fernandes to British journalists, who quoted this day by The Manchester Evening News.
“I don’t know what Cristiano said to the club, or the coach. I don’t know what’s in his mind, but we have to respect his space. What we know is that he will have some family problems, so we have to respect his space, give him space», was the compatriot’s appeal before the speculation that CR7’s prolonged absence from training gave rise.
Bruno Fernandes is asked if it will be important for the ‘red devils’ to keep CR7 in their ranks, Bruno Fernandes leaves the decision in the hands of those involved in the competition.
“I don’t know. Obviously Cristiano was our top scorer last season [2021/22], brought goals to the team, but of course it’s not up to me to judge: it’s up to the club to make a choice, just like Cristiano makes his own. Don’t know what’s in his mind: I only saw this on the news about him wanting to go. I didn’t ask him anything about it,” he said.
“The only thing I asked Cristiano when he didn’t show up [no regresso aos treinos, há mais de duas semanas] if all was well with the family. He told me what was going on. This was all, nothing more », concluded the 27-year-old Portuguese international international midfielder, without revealing more details about the mysterious absence and explanation for the behavior of CR7, whose absence is still an omitted reason for his teammates at Old Trafford. .
