Why Cristiano Ronaldo’s sister spectacularly shot down Real Madrid president
Cristiano Ronaldo's sister Katia Aveiro has offered a stinging rebuke to Real Madrid president Florentino Perez after he laughed off suggestions that the Manchester United star could make a return to the Bernabeu.
Ronaldo’s future has been the source of many football transfer news headlines over the course of the summer, with the Portuguese having missed a large chunk of pre-season training due to personal reasons.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner was back in the Man Utd squad to face Brighton last weekend but only played a role from the bench.
Meanwhile, Perez was caught on camera responding to a question from a group of Real Madrid supporters, who told him to re-sign Ronaldo.
Perez angered the Ronaldo camp as he got the player’s age wrong in his response, which seemed to suggest that he feels that the attacker has seen better days.
He stated: “Who? Cristiano? Again? At 38?”
Ronaldo’s sister offers Perez response
Ronaldo’s sister has taken objection to the words of the Real Madrid president and shot back with an angry response via Instagram stories.
"He’s 38 years old but he can jump two metres high in the air and stay in it for three minutes and his body has no fat,” she said.
"Respect yourself old man, you are 75."
Ronaldo is a legend at the Bernabeu, where he played for nine years between 2009 and 2018. Over the course of his stay at Real Madrid, he established legendary status as he won four Ballons d’Or and became the club’s all-time record goal scorer.
He made a move to Juventus in 2018, where he became the fastest player in club history to reach 100 goals, before switching to Manchester United in a blockbuster transfer a year ago.
Ronaldo, though, is unhappy at Old Trafford because of the club’s lack of competitiveness at the top level.
