Ronaldo isn’t slowing down – Fonte warns Euro 2020 rivals

Portugal defender Jose Fonte has tipped Cristiano Ronaldo to be at his best ahead of Euro 2022, while sounding a note of warning to opposition teams to ‘expect nothing but greatness’ from their captain.

Ronaldo faced some criticism this season despite putting up a fine performance for the Italian outfit, yet could not inspire the club beyond the Champions League round of 16.

The 36-year-old Ronaldo could not prevent the Bianconeri from slipping to a fourth-place finish in Serie A, but Fonte has no doubt about his skippers’ ability to cause danger in the final third.

The Portugal and Lille defender told talkSPORT: “He’s our leader, our captain. As usual he’s preparing in the best way. He’s one of the best professionals around. The numbers speak for themselves. He’s still going, he’s still a beast, so expect nothing else but greatness.”

Ronaldo contributed 36 goals including 29 in Serie A to land the competition’s top scorer award, while also adding a first Coppa Italia and second Suppercoppa Italiana to his illustrious CV.

Fernando Santos’ side have been drawn in a tough group alongside France, Germany and Hungary, and it is possible that they could meet England in the round of 16.
