Cristiano Ronaldo’s sister has extended her anger on the Portugal national team for being ungrateful to what he has done to the country.
She made this known on the backdrop of the country’s Head coach, Fernando Santos decision to drop the former Man United star on the bench for Portugal’s World Cup last-16 clash with Switzerland on Tuesday December 6, having failed to hit top form in their group-stage campaign.
Although Ronaldo later played a part in the team’s 6-1 thrashing of Switzerland, however, her sister Katia Aveiro, 45, has angrily come out to urge her brother to quit Portugal’s World Cup campaign.
In an emotional social-media post, Aveiro wrote: ‘Portugal won. Thank God. New talents shone. Amazing. Are we going to win this? I believe so!!
On the field, they shouted for Ronaldo. It wasn’t because Portugal was winning… And I’m not saying this. The world watched… Why is it???
‘I’m glad Portugal won… (I’ve seen Portugal win so many times) And even this doesn’t invalidate the smallness of a large part of the Portuguese people. And this is what is not right, because they continue to curse, they continue to insist on offence and ingratitude.
‘Too sad with what I read and hear not here in Qatar but in my country in his country… But really sad. AND I WANTED IT SO MUCH.
‘I really wanted him to come home, leave the national team and sit next to us so we could hug him and say that everything is fine, remind him of what he conquered and what home he came from.
‘I really wanted him not to go there anymore, we have suffered enough (they will never know how big) you are and the little ones don’t realise how huge you are…
‘Come to your house. Which is where they understand you, where they embrace you. As always was. Where do you have all the gratitude. And not ingratitude.
‘Thank you Ronaldo. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I really wanted to… But whatever you decide, we are with you. Until death. Thanks.’Copyright © 2022 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
