It’s a hard life for Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t it. He gets to play for our beloved club, women throw themselves at him and he earns more in a week than we do in years. Still, no need to rub it in Cristiano!
Ahead of Portugal’s friendly with Brazil, Ronaldo has spoken about the treatment he expects to get from the birds there.
“Oh, I’m ready for harassment (from women), I’m used to that in Europe, and here it is the same,” he said.
Ronaldo has also spoken about what life is like at Portugal with Carlos Queiroz as boss.
“Big Phil is a great friend,” Ronaldo said of the Chelsea manager. “I’m sorry he has left the Portugal job, but it was an excellent move (to Chelsea). I loved working with him. Queiroz has not had much time to develop his work. Two years ago, England also had problems and then they recovered. All the big national teams go through this. Let us recover.”
