Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva has insisted there is no “strange atmosphere” between his Manchester United teammates Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes at the Portugal camp.
Ronaldo and his United teammate Fernandes are at the Portugal World Cup camp in preparation for their first match against Ghana on Thursday.
“The news that comes from England has nothing to do with the national team, so I won’t say anything,” Bernardo told reporters in Qatar.
“I don’t care, it’s about Cristiano. I don’t have to comment. It’s about Cristiano, I’m not a Manchester United player and even if I was, I wouldn’t answer that because we’re in the national team so I’m not going to talk about that.”
“I don’t see any strange atmosphere in our national team between Cristiano or Bruno,” he added.
The midfielder said questions about Ronaldo and Manchester United should be asked of the 37-year-old, saying he is not a Red Devils player.
Silva insisted Ronaldo was motivated and focused on the matter on the ground – being World Cup matches – and helping the country.
