Roberto Martínez, the new coach of Portugal, announced that he has Cristiano Ronaldo for the new cycle of the Portuguese team

The new Portugal coach, the Spanish Roberto Martínez, has traveled to Riyadh to speak with Cristiano Ronaldo, now at Al Nassr, and with other Portuguese players who are in the Saudi capital to play the Spanish Super Cup.

Roberto Martínez appears in Arabia in several videos published by Valencia -which participates in the Super Cup- and by the Portuguese press.
The new coach of the “quinas” advanced this week, in his presentation, his willingness to speak with all the players of the Portuguese team, including Cristiano, who deserves “all my respect,” he said.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s future with his country’s team is one of the main pending issues of the former Belgium coach’s mandate.

The captain of the team experienced a controversial World Cup in Qatar marked by disagreements with the previous coach, Fernando Santos.
He recently signed for Saudi side Al Nassr but has yet to make his debut for the team so it is unknown at the moment if he will return to his old form.
In addition to Cristiano, Roberto Martínez has taken advantage of his visit to Riyadh to visit the Valencia squad and chat with midfielder André Almeida and winger Thierry Correia, according to images published on social networks by the club itself.

He will also be able to meet with the Portuguese members of Betis, goalkeeper Rui Silva and midfielder William Carvalho, who face FC Barcelona today at the King Fahd International Stadium in the Saudi capital.
