Coach Otto Addo insists the Ronaldo controversy with Manchester United is not Ghana’s problem when they face Portugal in the World Cup on Thursday.
There has been concern that Portugal will be distracted by Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Manchester United recently. Ronaldo had an explosive interview in which he criticised his former club and manager Erik ten Hag.
Now, Ronaldo is preparing for Portugal’s Group H World Cup game against Ghana.
The West African nation’s coach Addo was asked to comment on how the Ronaldo controversy will affect Ghana.
“I don’t know [whether Ronaldo saga can be a distraction] and to be honest, I don’t care,” Addo told the media.
“This is not our problem and I don’t think it’s a big problem. Everyone wants to win. No matter what happens, it’s a big stage, a big game at the World Cup level so I don’t think normally this can distract anyone.”
