Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the Milan striker, said that it was not important for him to send a message to captain Cristiano Ronaldo after Portugal’s exit from the 2022 World Cup.
It is noteworthy that Ronaldo was unable to save Portugal as Morocco beat Portugal 1-0 in the quarter-finals of the World Cup last weekend.
Scenes of a tearful Ronaldo making his way to the dressing room after Portugal’s exit were replayed on television screens around the world, marking a rocky end to the striker’s quest for World Cup glory.
Asked if he would send a message to the 37-year-old, Ibrahimovic told reporters in Dubai, “I think it’s not important what I can say. I mean, everyone wants to win the World Cup. Not everyone wins the World Cup.”
“Everyone is trying, and if you don’t win it, you obviously get emotional, if you win it, you get emotional also in a different way.”
