"I haven’t discussed the topic with Cris (Cristiano). We’re all focused on the national team and the World Cup. I don’t feel uncomfortable. I don’t have to pick a side. It was a dream come true to play with Cristiano [at United] but nothing lasts forever.
"We know what the World Cup means to Cristiano and his focus has always been there. He didn't tell me about his decision. It's a personal decision and it concerns him and his family. We haven't talked about it. Everyone here is focused on the goal, the national team and the World Cup.
