Rudi Garcia, Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr manager, has been dubbed “the WORST person I’ve ever met in football” by former Brazil star Juninho, who claims the Frenchman would’serve him breakfast’ to keep the Portuguese on his side.
Juninho, a former Brazil star, has described Cristiano Ronaldo’s new manager as the “worst person” he has ever met in his football career in a scathing character assassination.
Juninho Pernambucano, an ex-Brazilian international, claimed Rudi Garcia, who will be Ronaldo’s manager at Al-Nassr, would serve the former Manchester United striker breakfast if necessary to keep him on his right side.
‘He doesn’t know how to lead anything,’ said the former midfielder, who is widely regarded as the greatest free kicker of all time.
The 40-cap Brazil midfielder’s relationship with Ronaldo’s new manager was known to be strained, with Juninho saying when Garcia left Lyon at the end of the 2020-21 season: ‘He’s a cold and calculating person, very untrusting and insecure.
‘That’s why he instils fear in employees and technical staff in general.’
Juninho, real name Antonio Augusto Ribeiro Reis Junior, told the online Portuguese sports site MaisFutebol: ‘My experience with Rudi Garcia was terrible.
‘He’s the worst character I’ve ever met in my football career.’
‘He won’t dare to do anything obstructive,’ he said, confirming his belief that he will go out of his way to suck up to Cristiano.
‘On the contrary, if necessary, he will even serve Cristiano his breakfast.
