The Portuguese star was warned of his outburst and when the final signal went he threw the captain’s armband and marched out to the locker room.
But despite the outburst – Ronaldo is still Portugal’s team captain.
– He will have the bandage. Forever, says national team captain Fernando Santos.
Santos was asked at a press conference ahead of Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier against Luxembourg.
– It was a moment of great frustration, and we are talking about a player who is unbeatable when it comes to the desire to win, Santos says.
– No one can say that his reaction was beautiful, but there is no point in discussing whether Ronaldo should continue to be captain or not. That’s something I really want to clarify.
