Santos: 'Ronaldo always wants to play'

Juventus might want him to rest, but Portugal coach Fernando Santos warns Cristiano Ronaldo ‘wants to play every minute of every game.’

CR7 is on international duty for the Nations League fixtures and seems to have fully recovered from a slight ankle sprain he suffered in the 1-1 draw with Lazio on Sunday.

As clubs call for their star men to be rested for non-essential matches, Fernando Santos assures it’s not an approach shared by Rolando.

“He wants to play every minute and every second of every game. He never wants to leave the field,” the coach told A Bola.

The 35-year-old has scored 101 goals in 167 senior caps for Portugal.
