Cristiano Ronaldo Said on Monday that his dispute with Manchester United would not adversely affect Portugal’s squad at the World Cup in Qatar. Reduced to a peripheral role at United this season, the superstar lashed out at his club and United coach Erik ten Haag in a TV interview last week.

“I have no doubt that this recent episode, that interview, and other episodes with other players that happen sometimes may shake the player but will not shake the team,” Ronaldo said at a press conference in the Portugal camp.

Ronaldo was suspended for the Premier League club’s 1-1 draw at Chelsea last month after refusing to come on as a substitute against Tottenham.

The 37-year-old claimed during an interview with British journalist Piers Morgan that he felt “provoked” by Ten Haag in that response.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner remains Portugal’s leader despite his struggles at club level and hopes to keep playing until he is 40.
