Ronaldo is not sad, he is fine, says Portugal team-mate Nani

The Manchester United winger said there is nothing wrong with the reportedly unhappy Blancos star, who celebrated his goal during the 2-1 win over Luxembourg on Friday
Portugal midfielder Nani says his international team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo is fine, dismissing reports that the Real Madrid star is unhappy.

Ronaldo refused to celebrate after scoring twice for Jose Mourinho's side in their victory over Granada last Sunday, citing a professional dispute within the club in the mixed zone following the game as the reason behind his lack of joy at finding the back of the net.

However, the 27-year-old did celebrate his equaliser for Portugal against Luxembourg with slightly more vigour on Friday night.

Manchester United and fellow Seleccao midfielder Nani pointed to the celebration when asked what the situation regarding Ronaldo is.

Nani told Marca: "Ronaldo's fine. Haven't you seen him? He's not sad, he's fine."

Helder Postiga gave Portugal the lead in the second half and Ronaldo was also the first to congratulate the Zaragoza forward.
