Zlatan Ibrahimovic Sympathizes With Ronaldo’s World Cup Heartbreak. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner was seen in tears after Portugal’s World Cup quarter-final loss. 

Zlatan Ibrahimovic understands Cristiano Ronaldo‘s emotional response to Portugal’s elimination from the World Cup on Saturday. The 37-year-old came in as a second-half replacement in Portugal’s 1-0 quarter-final loss to Morocco, but couldn’t prevent Youssef En-Nesyri’s 42nd-minute header from sending them packing.

The defeat to Morocco not only extended Portugal’s lengthy wait for World Cup triumph, but it also ensured Ronaldo is unlikely to ever hoist football’s most iconic trophy – a dream he has always held dear.

 “Everybody wants to win the World Cup; not everybody gets to win the World Cup,” Ibrahimovic said on the Daily Mail about Ronaldo’s tears at the end of the match.

“Everybody is trying and if you don’t win it obviously you’ll get emotional, if you win it, you get also emotional in a different way.”

The former Manchester United striker also hinted that there is more to Ronaldo’s abrupt exit from the Premier League club than meets the eye.

 “His exiting United, I think when things happen, we will never know the true story,” Ibrahimovic said of Ronaldo’s exit last month.

“They say what they want to say, he says what he needs to say to protect himself, then you have the coach that says these things to protect himself. Then the club says things – not like me, I will tell you how it really happened. But we are all different. Everybody is careful about their image.

 “For me, the perfect image is being yourself. The true story we will not know my friend.”
