By India Today Web Desk: Portugal coach Fernando Santos revealed that he was not happy with Cristiano Ronaldo’s behaviour after the forward reacted angrily when substituted during the team’s final group game against South Korea in the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2022.

Ronaldo was replaced by Andre Silva in the 65th minute of Friday’s final group-stage match, and the 37-year-old forward later denied swearing at Santos for taking him off. Portugal captain Ronaldo stated that his remarks were directed at a South Korean player who was telling him to hurry up and leave the field.

Regardless, Santos was dissatisfied with Ronaldo’s reaction but insisted the matter was resolved ahead of Portugal’s last-16 match against Switzerland on Tuesday. Portugal will take on Switzerland in the Round of 15 match for a place in the quarter-finals.

“I didn’t like it at all. I didn’t like it at all,” Santos told the media when he was asked how he had reacted to those images.

“Then these matters are resolved, resolved in-house,” he said.

“They are over. It is the end of the story regarding this issue and now we’re thinking about the game tomorrow and everyone is fully focused on the match preparations.

Ronaldo’s starting role in the team remains a hot topic among Portugal fans, but Santos said he was not paying attention to the debate or online polls on the issue.

“I do not read this type of material. It is not a lack of respect, it is simply that we have three days to train for a game and I am not looking at other kinds of news. We focus on the upcoming match,” Santos added.

Santos said he expected a close contest against Switzerland. Portugal beat the Swiss 4-0 in the UEFA Nations League in June before losing 1-0 in the reverse fixture.

“It won’t be the first time against the Swiss, we know it will be a difficult match,” he added.

“They are a well-organised team with high-quality players and they know their way of playing very well.

“They are very well synced and are always focused and that is what we expect in this match — we will face a disciplined side.”
