The Portuguese national coach Fernando Santos spoke to Azerbaijan in an interview before the World Cup qualifier A bola on the ambitions of his captain Cristiano Ronaldo. The superstar should therefore not be concerned with his or her individual performance, but rather achieving higher goals.
“Cristiano is particularly motivated when he represents the national team. I’m sure he will come to us this time with the same ambition and think not of personal goals but of the national team,” said Santos.
Recent successes played no role in Ronaldo’s motivation, according to the coach: “He will be over-motivated, and not just because he has just scored goals.”
According to the 66-year-old, the goals mentioned are ambitious: “I know that he has the big dream of being part of the common goal. And this is to play the World Cup and to be able to win it. His ambition is to be with to become world champion of his national team. “
In the Juventus jersey, CR7 had only responded with three goals in the 3-1 win against Cagliari last weekend to the criticism of his person after the CL elimination. Overall, the Portuguese has 23 goals in 23 games in the league. Recently there has been speculation about a possible return to Real Madrid.
