Andre Silva Praises Ronaldo’s Criticism Wrong Way
Andre Silva said that captain Cristiano Ronaldo deserves praise for his silencing criticism that accompanied his career, after the attacker was suspended five games for pushing the referee.
The 32-year-old was punished after pushing Ricardo de Burgos from behind after he was red-carded in the first leg of the European Super Cup contra Barcelona.
Ronaldo appealed but was rejected, something called an “inviolable decision.” Which meant he would have to miss the La Liga event until September 20 against Betis.
He is in the Portugal squad ahead of the 2018 World Cup qualifier against the Faroe Islands and Hungary, and his team mate Silva is hoping he again responds with action on the pitch.
“He can always silence the mouths of his critics,” the AC Milan striker told a news conference. “We are very confident he will look good. Football is full of injustices. ”
Portugal currently sit second in Group B after six games, three points behind Switzerland.
