Portugal manager Fernando Santos has defended Cristiano Ronaldo's refusal to speak to the media at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup.

It was recently reported that the 32-year-old is fed up with life in Spain and now wants to leave Real Madrid in the transfer window.

Ronaldo has not spoken to the press since the reports emerged while he was in Portugal last week, and his national team manager backed his stance on the matter.

"Do you think he should answer questions about issues outside the game?" Santos said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"He's here to talk about the game – full stop. He's not talking about his family, Real Madrid, nothing. He's here to talk about the game.

"I understand you're all curious, but you have to respect the personal life of the player. You will have other opportunities to talk to him and get all the answers. I think he did very well in not answering any questions."
