United’s decision to get rid of Ronaldo came after his explosive sit-down interview with SunSport columnist and TalkTV main man Piers Morgan.

Five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo accused Man Utd of betrayal, and slammed the lack of investment in the club’s infrastructure.

Present United figures such as boss Erik ten Hag were in the firing line, with Ronaldo admitting he does not respect the Dutchman.

And former team-mates Gary Neville and Wayne Rooney were also slammed for their criticism.

Portugal went on to win their opening game 3-2 against Ghana, with Ronaldo scoring from the penalty spot.

And to keep spirits high, according to  El Espanol, Ronaldo took his team-mates out for dinner at the recently opened Tatel de Doha restaurant on Al Maha Island.

Ronaldo, as well as Tennis legend Rafael Nadal, are among partners at Mabel Hospitality, who own the restaurant.

He is said to have picked up the bill and the Portugal team were all smiles as they posed for a group photo.


The most expensive starter on the menu is Fresh Avocado “Al Ajillo” & Carabinero, which would set you back £34.

The meat isn’t cheap either, with a Australian T-bone Steak costing £224.

Ronaldo only drinks on special occasions, but should the Portugal team have decided to sip some champagne, the most expensive bottle comes in at £2662.

The Portugal team were out until 11.30pm before the national team picked up the players on their own bus.  

Portugal’s next Group H game is against Uruguay on Monday.
