LE BALLON – “I believe that Ronaldo will not only be in Qatar, but also at the next European Championship” (Selection)

The day after Portugal qualified for the 2022 World Cup, José Fonte spoke about Cristiano Ronaldo’s future in the national team.

“I think he said it very clearly in his last interview: he is the one who decides your future. He feels very good physically and, if he has the possibility of winning and continuing to play as much as possible high level, he will continue to play, as he said himself”, began by referring to the defender, in statements made to British radio Talksport.

“Nobody knows what he has in mind. Only he can decide your future. He wants to keep playing, so I think he will not only be in Qatar, but also in the next European championship [em 2024]“, immediately underlined José Fonte, who is also an example of longevity, since he is 38 years old.

For the Lille defender, moreover, Portugal will have no reason to worry the day CR7 decides to abandon. “I have to say that I have never seen a team with so much talent and so much quality in all areas of the pitch as the one that is emerging. I sincerely believe that the future will be bright. I believe that if we do everything right we will be an excellent candidate to win competitions, because we have a lot of quality and talent in João Félix, Jota or Bruno Fernandes. We have central players like Djaló and Rúben Dias and also Cancelo, Dalot and Nuno Mendes,” he pointed out, concluding:

“The love of football in our country is incredible. The attention to this sport is very high. Obviously that is also the result of the players we have had in the past and the influence we have had, that is why everyone considers football as the main sport.Despite success in other modalities, football is the main sport in Portugal.
