Chris Sutton slams Martinez over Ronaldo

Former Chelsea star, Chris Sutton, has slammed Portugal coach, Roberto Martinez, for not dropping Cristiano Ronaldo during their quarter final clash with France.

Sutton was furious that the Spaniard did not drop the football icon despite his poor performances.

He expressed surprise that Roberto Martinez lacks the backbone to axe Ronaldo, who might as well be named Portugal’s manager with the amount of carte blanche he is being gifted in Germany.

Sutton added that a manager must realise when a player is not benefiting the team, no matter who it is and be brave enough to make difficult decisions without worrying who might be upset.
