Dimitri Payet didn’t mean to injure Ronaldo
The halfback of French national team, Dimitri Payet declared he didn’t mean to cause any damage to Cristiano Ronaldo in the final of Euro-2016 (0:1).
“It was usual single combat, that’s all. I have returned myself a ball. And if I have done Ronaldo an injury at the same time, it wasn’t deliberately.
It is not in my character – to be a bad guy in the field. It isn’t necessary to doubt it.
We are disappointed. We owned a ball more, have created more moments, but haven’t scored a goal which would change everything. Thus, the rival has benefited by the few chances. The goal has solved everything. The Portuguese were more effective”, – Payet noted.
