Why Cristiano Ronaldo Refused to Swap Shirts

Furthermore, Cristiano Ronaldo, as of late delegated the Best Men’s Player by FIFA, again battled in local activity and was plainly irritated with how the diversion worked out.

Talking on a RAC105 radio show, as cited by SPORT, Granell stated:
“He said to me that he didn’t want to because he hadn’t like how we had managed the final minutes of the game.
“He told me I seemed like a good player, but that he wouldn’t change shirts with me.
“I said to [Ronaldo] that what we had achieved was not a miracle, but it was a huge feat. We had the experience from other years, when we’ve played a little bit too correct.”
