Bruno Fernandes insisted he has "no problem" with Cristiano Ronaldo, despite his Manchester United and Portugal teammate's explosive interview claiming he felt betrayed by the club and has no respect for manager Erik ten Hag.
Ronaldo was highly critical of Man United during his interview with Piers Morgan on TalkTV, which aired in the UK on Wednesday and Thursday.
United said they would address the Portuguese forward's comments after establishing the full facts, though sources have told ESPN that Ten Hag does not believe he can work with Ronaldo again.
Ronaldo was absent with a stomach bug as Portugal continued their preparations for the World Cup with a 4-0 victory over Nigeria in Lisbon on Thursday. Fernandes scored twice in the win and afterward stressed that all his focus is on the tournament in Qatar.
