Mismanagement of Tin Hag with Cristiano Ronaldo
The player Paulo knows best is fellow countryman Cristiano Ronaldo, who is not going through a good phase in his career now because he is “humiliated by Tin Hag,” according to Vautre: “I think Ten Hag can’t do what he did, it insults him. I respect him, but Cristiano has won the Ballon d’Or five times, and you can’t tell someone like that to come two minutes before the end.
