Cristiano Ronaldo : I Am A Human And I Also Suffer!

Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed that he feels like a “broken man” following Portugal’s World Cup exit and has denied blaming coach Carlos Queiroz for the country’s failure.

The former FIFA World Player of the Year’s conduct was also brought in question following the final whistle as he appeared to spit in the direction of a TV cameraman on the pitch.

The national team captain later told reporters to “talk to Carlos Queiroz” when asked to explain Portugal’s defeat to Spain, but has since issued a statement through his agent to establish he was not seeking to apportion blame to the coach.

The former Manchester United winger said that : “I feel a broken man, completely disconsolate, frustrated and an unimaginable sadness,”.

He added that : “When I said ‘put the question to the coach’, it is just because Carlos Queiroz was holding a press conference.

“I was not in a position to explain what was what. I am a human being, and like any human being I suffer and I have the right to suffer alone. I know that I am the captain, and I have always assumed and will assume my responsibilities.”
