January 9 News At the inauguration press conference, the new Portuguese coach Martinez talked about Ronaldo.
Will the 37-year-old Ronaldo continue to be selected for the national team?
Martinez: Football decisions are made by looking at the performance on the field. I am not the type of office manager, so my starting point today is to get to know you (reporters). I want to get in touch with all the players and participate in the World Cup in Qatar.
The 26 people are the basis of my choice, and Ronaldo is one of them.
Ronaldo has played for the national team for 19 years, he deserves respect, we will sit down and talk.
From today we have ten weeks to build the best team possible to qualify for the Euros.
Tomorrow we will start working and get to know all the players, Ronaldo is one of them.
What role will Ronaldo play in your new project?
Martinez: We will now start a process where our coaching staff will get to know all the players who can join the national team.
We have 54 players under the age of 28 in the best league, domestic leagues Porto and Benfica are in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, so we have a lot of work to do and then we will make a decision.
