Cristiano Ronaldo claims he is ‘bulletproof’ from criticism and doesn’t ‘care what other people think’ as he stunned reporters at the World Cup in his first public address since his interview with Piers Morgan.
The forward – who is hoping to lead his country to glory in Qatar in what will be his last World Cup – has come out to defend his infamous interview, which tore into Manchester United
Across a 90-minute sitdown with Morgan he made a number of allegations, revealed he has no respect for manager Erik ten Hag and accused United of betraying him.
His interview dominated the media agenda in the lead-up to the World Cup, but he was quick to ask for the press to stop asking team-mates about it as he looks to focus on the tournament.
‘Timing is always timing,’ he said in his unscheduled appearance on Monday morning.
‘From your side it is easy to look at how we can chose timings. ‘Sometimes you write truths, sometimes you write lies. I don’t have to worry what others think.
I talk when I want to. Everybody knows who I am, what I believe in. They have known me [here] since I was 11. ‘They will not be influenced by what people say and write about me.
‘The atmosphere is excellent, no problems, we are completely focused. You can help by not talking about me. I’m completely bulletproof and iron-clad.
‘If you ask other players about Cristiano Ronaldo I would be upset. ‘If you want to ask him about the World Cup and the team, I would like you to do that.’
