The Portugal national team player explains the truth about the dispute between Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes

Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – Benfica and Portugal midfielder Joao Mario revealed the fact that there was a dispute between Cristiano Ronaldo and his Manchester United teammate, Bruno Fernandez.

Social media activists circulated a video clip on a large scale, showing a “cold” handshake between the duo Ronaldo and Fernandez, during their meeting in the dressing room of the Portugal national team.

Activists claimed that Fernandez warmly ignored Cristiano’s handshake, after the latter attacked the “Red Devils” management and Dutch coach Erik Ten Hag, in an interview he gave to British journalist, Piers Morgan, via “The Sun” newspaper.

Joao Mario denied the existence of a dispute between them, as he said during the press conference on Portugal’s preparations for the World Cup in Qatar: “It was a joke between them, because Bruno was the last to arrive (to the Portugal camp), and Cristiano asked if he had come by boat. It was a joke between them, playing together.” .

Fernandez had stumbled upon joining the ranks of his country at the right time, which made him arrive late to the Portugal national team camp, in preparation for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Ronaldo and Fernandez are among the most prominent players in the Portuguese national team, and the fans count on them to lead the team to achieve the World Cup title in its twenty-second edition.

Portugal is in Group H, along with Uruguay, Ghana and South Korea.
