World Cup

Ronaldo won’t make a hasty choice following Portugal’s elimination.

Cristiano Ronaldo said on Sunday “there’s no point in reacting in the heat of the moment,” as he responded to Portugal‘s World Cup elimination.

“To win a World Cup for Portugal was the biggest and most ambitious dream of my career. Fortunately, I won many titles of international dimension, including for Portugal,” Ronaldo wrote on Instagram.

Although he did not mention it in his post, he began Portugal’s final two games in Qatar from the bench, a move that sparked controversy both in Portugal and throughout the football world.

“Let’s hope that time will be a good counsellor and allow everyone to draw their own conclusions,” he wrote.

The post was accompanied by a photo of Ronaldo, head down, trudging off the field in Doha after the 1-0 quarterfinal loss to Morocco on Saturday.

Ronaldo is now without a club following a contentious split from Manchester United.

Ronaldo allegedly threatened to quit the team after being removed from the starting lineup, but head coach Fernando Santos denied it.

“I just want everyone to know that a lot was said, a lot was written, a lot was speculated, but my dedication to Portugal didn’t change for an instant,” Ronaldo added.

“I was always one more player fighting for everyone’s goal and I would never turn my back on my teammates and my country.”

“In the five World Cups I played, always alongside great players and supported by millions of Portuguese, I gave it my all. I left everything on the field. I never turned my back on the fight and I never gave up on this dream.

“Unfortunately, yesterday the dream ended. The dream was beautiful while it lasted.”
