Welcome to Cristiano Ronaldo’s World. In today’s adventure, the soccer superstar spots a 17-year-old girl in a car filming him, and (pick one): A. Smiles and goes on his way; B. Stops to sign an autograph; C. Smashes the car window, showering the student with shards of glass resulting in sending her to the hospital. Oh, don’t pretend you don’t know the correct answer.
Actually I forgot D., Asks to see the girl topless in the bathroom. Anyway the answer is C., as 17-year-old student Sara Pardal was treated at a Lisbon hospital before making a complaint to police. Now where’s that asshat prima dona form? Actually, former Real Madrid sports director Paulo Futre had the best advice for Ronaldo to avoid such situations: “Get a steady girlfriend.”
The Portuguese teenager told police that she had been waiting in a car outside the footballer’s Lisbon apartment because she is a fan and wanted an autograph, according to reports in Portuguese media.
The FIFA World player of the year admitted, who recently signed for Real Madrid for a record £80 million, losing his temper but claims the girl was working alongside a paparazzi photographer and had exaggerated her injuries.
“I regret what I did, but I can’t promise that I would not react in the same way again in the same circumstances,” he said in a statement released by his management company.
The former Manchester United striker was on his way to an Elton John concert in the Portuguese capital on Sunday evening accompanied by his mother Dolores Aveiro, 54, when the incident happened.
So before you criticize, let all who have never been on their way to an Elton John concert accompanied by his mother cast the first stone. But Futre, a former Spanish soccer player for Porto, says that all Ronaldo needs is a steady relationship.
“It is not that he does not have the personality to handle this pressure, but there will be complicated days. The moment he falls in love and is in a stable relationship, the situation will change.”
