Mourinho encourages Ronaldo to ignore criticism

Ronaldo has been subjected to abuse from fans who jeered him at the weekend for another below par display against Barcelona.

“If he is like me, he does not care about whistles,” Mourinho explained. “During the match, there is no time to listen to what is happening out there. It does not seem to be a big problem.”

“Losing a match affected him, just like everyone else, but he does not lose his emotional balance.

“It is normal that he is more upset than he was two weeks ago. But there is no drama about his situation.”
