Cristiano Ronaldo backs kit suppliers over new El Comandante boots

Cristiano Ronaldo's kit suppliers have got the thumbs up from the Portugal captain who enjoys the ideas of "leader" and "power" linked to the name of his new "El Comandante" boots.

Speaking from the Portugal camp before this week's games against Egypt and Netherlands, Ronaldo said he liked the historical reference within the branding of his new footwear.

"El Comandante -- it's good, it's coming from history," Ronaldo explained. "I like the word, it means leader, power. So it's great that they put that name, I'm glad."

Ronaldo may not recall, or perhaps has preferred to forget, that he has not always been so happy with all the different meanings of this particular word.

In 2013 when then FIFA president Sepp Blatter was caught apparently belittling Ronaldo as an on-pitch "commander" who struts around the pitch, it led to a public row which was only resolved when Ronaldo was awarded that year's Ballon d'Or.
