Cristiano Ronaldo is a football superstar who will live forever. The Portuguese great has won every individual and team trophy conceivable, which most players would give a limb for. One prize, though, has escaped the 37-year-old: a World Cup championship for his nation.
He will, naturally, be the center of attention in Qatar as he leads a star-studded Portuguese team in what will most likely be his last World Cup appearance. With seven goals at FIFA World Cups, he is the second-highest scorer among current players, behind only Germany’s Thomas Mueller (10). Ronaldo will become the first male player to score in five World Cups if he scores at least once in Qatar.
However, the experienced forward’s route to Qatar FIFA World Cup 2022 has not been simple.
This season, football fans haven’t heard the trademark “Suiiii” a lot. Why? Because Cristiano Ronaldo has had a rough start to 2022-23 after dealing with personal and professional issues throughout the summer.
During the off-season summer vacation, talk over his future at Manchester United was rampant. The Portuguese superstar was looking for a transfer away from Old Trafford in order to continue playing in the Champions League at the FIFA World Cup 2022, which United is not participating in this season. During this time, Ronaldo dealt with personal issues as his baby daughter experienced health issues that prompted him to miss the club’s pre-season.
His predicament worsened as the season started because he was unable to gain a move away from the club. He was demoted to the bench as manager Erik Ten Hag decided to trust younger players, and his relationship with the latter worsened as Ronaldo spent more time on the bench. Last week at the FIFA World Cup 2022, Ronaldo delivered an illegal televised interview in which he criticized the boss. He said that he had little regard for Ten Haag and that the club had “betrayed” him.
Despite the fact that the scandal is still fresh in everyone’s mind, Ronaldo will devote all of his attention to Portugal.
