Euro 2024: Mourinho predicts what’ll happen to Cristiano Ronaldo

Fenerbahce manager, Jose Mourinho, has backed Cristiano Ronaldo to score goals and play a pivotal role for Portugal in the upcoming Euro 2024 in Germany.

Ronaldo is gearing up for his 11th major tournament, having debuted for Portugal at Euro 2004.

The 39-year-old forward recently concluded a stellar season in the Saudi Pro League with Al-Nassr, scoring 50 goals in 51 matches.

Despite his impressive form, Ronaldo faces stiff competition for a starting spot in Portugal’s lineup from the likes of Liverpool’s Diogo Jota, PSG’s Goncalo Ramos, and Joao Felix, who spent last season on loan at Barcelona.

Speaking about the former Real Madrid and Manchester United star, Mourinho told RTP, “Cristiano is the one who knows how he feels, what his goals are, how the coach wants to use him, whether to play every minute of every game or protect him in key moments.

“But there is a lot that goes on inside that gets between them. He has a lot of influence and he will score his goals.

“I don’t believe he will leave the European Championship without goals.”
