Pay per head services learned that Croatian icon Zvonimir Boban believes that Cristiano Ronaldo’s vanity and selfishness set back Portugal at the FIFA World Cup.
Portugal ended up being eliminated from Brazil 2014 at the first hurdle as they ended third in Group G behind Germany and the United States, and price per head services saw many unhappy fans.
Throughout the tournament, the 29-year-old who is very famous with pay per head services was troubled by knee problems, and he seemed to be very unhappy with his team-mates after storming off the pitch following Portugal’s 2-2 draw with the USA.
And pay per head services saw that Boban – a four-time Serie A winner with Milan and a 51-cap veteran for his national side – said that the reason behind Portugal’s failure in Brazil was Ronaldo’s individual mentality, pointing to his behaviour after scoring the last goal in Real Madrid’s UEFA Champions League win over Atletico Madrid in May.
“Ronaldo is an amazing player and he showed that again in Brazil, even if he missed a number of chances,” Boban said.
“But his biggest flaw is the way he looks at himself and the team.
“He scored the [goal for] 4-1 in the 120th minute of the Champions League final and celebrated like he was insane. That was the ultimate proof that he loves himself. The headlines should be about the team, not about Ronaldo.
“The same thing happened with Portugal in Brazil. There was no order or discipline. All the Portugal players were playing their own game and more occupied with their hair and tattoos. It’s Hollywood behaviour.
