Ghana coach, Otto Addo, has dismissed talk that the continuing fallout from forward Cristiano Ronaldoâ€™s Manchester United departure on Tuesday evening could distract his team ahead of their 2022 FIFA World Cup opener with Portugal.
Addo admitted that he doesnâ€™t care when asked about the effect Ronaldoâ€™s situation might have.
He, however, reiterated that it had no bearing on the Black Starsâ€™ will to beat Portugal on Thursday evening.
Asked about the impact of Ronaldoâ€™s exit from Man United, Addo said at his pre-match press conference ahead of Ghanaâ€™s World Cup clash with Portugal:
â€œI donâ€™t know and to be honest, I donâ€™t care. This is not our problem and I donâ€™t think it is a big problem.
â€œEverybody wants to win and no matter what happens, itâ€™s a big stage, a big game at the World Cup level. So I donâ€™t think normally this can disrupt anybody.â€
