Cristiano Ronaldo is currently on international duty “set to shut many of the mouths” of his critics, according to his Portugal teammate Andre Silva.
Still suspended for Sunday’s 2-2 La Liga draw at home to Valencia, Ronaldo was present at the Bernabeu as Zinedine Zidane’s side received the 2016-17 La Liga trophy before heading off for international duty.
“Football is no bed of roses,” Silva said of Ronaldo’s recent troubles at a news conference. “There are many injustices. I am sure that he is relaxed and ready to shut many of the mouths which spoke badly of him. He is here to do good work.”
The additional four-game ban Ronaldo received for pushing referee Ricardo De Burgos Bengoetxea at the Camp Nou on Aug. 13 was the shortest possible under Spanish federation rules, but Madrid still appealed the punishment as far as Spain’s special sports court, in vain.
