The one who was an indisputable for the selection of Portugal when it was third in the World-wide 1966, Antonio Simoes, has carried out some statements in which it has criticised deeply the attitude of Cristiano Ronaldo during the last minutes of the UEFA Euro 2016, when it devoted to try be protagonist giving instructions from the bench, after having left with the tail between the legs to the 20 minutes of party.

An injury prevented him continue on the terrain of game, but did not achieve mermar his wishes to follow appearing in first plane in all the cameras. The star of the Real Madrid did not leave to give indications to his mates, some of them enturbiando the ones of the seleccionador Fernando Santos, and Antonio Simoes asks after what no has criticised him thus in Portugal.

"It is not a question to know if it resulted something well or bad, is to look and say that it does not have to be like this. That is the question. But now, once it won , who wants to know this? The victory cushions. There is good and bad examples that the argument to having won allows that it do of everything. But, it was owing to this that win? You think that with all the people of bench going back crazy, and Cristiano Ronaldo in the paper of leader, that's why we win? If the people begin to think that it was therefore that win, then demand that it do this in all the parties".

"Two weeks before had thrown a microphone to the water, two weeks afterwards was a leader"

"I am 50 years old of career, never had seen something like this in my life. Any of the big players of the world dared to do a thing of these. And now they want to me convince that therefore we win? (...) The other day I raised me happy because Portugal won, but can not happen of 8 to 80. I knew players, leaders of big calibrate, Peeled, Eusebio, Cruyff, Maradona... Maradona, even taking into account his personality, never did a thing of those. I think that Ronaldo apoderó of an anxiety tremenda for wanting to win and show that it was a leader. The one who is leader no precise do this", explains Simoes, leaving by the floors to "CR7".

"In general, the country and the press seem to have darse# cuenta that Cristiano Ronaldo to the 31 years is a leader. Two weeks before had thrown a microphone to the water, two weeks afterwards was a leader. This is to throw sand to the eyes, a certificate of the stupidity. If Mourinho was the trainer, that would have happened? I think that the gesture of Fernando Santos was of big intelligence, example of how can handle with simplicity and humility this situation in the bench, how avoid a conflict, showing a big class".

"If it was another person, that had complex of authority, that there would be sucedido or would have finish very bad. But anybody speaks of this, all discovered at the end, that the man is a leader. In 1966 the captain was Mário Coluna, and would be unthinkable a thing of those. It was what was missing. Neither the trainer would have authorised it neither went through the head of Mário".
