Katia Aveiro, Cristiano Ronaldo’s sister, defends the Juventus striker. This was after he was denied a late winner in Portugal’s 0-0 draw with Serbia on Saturday.
The Juventus forward charged off the pitch, hurling his captain’s armband to the ground.
But Katia said he will throw the captain’s armband in the face of the referee itself.
“Portugal was robbed with a scandal. Cristiano, who scored a goal in the last minute (and it could have brought us victory), caused his and our revolt,” she wrote on Instagram.
“He immediately demonstrated that the ball had crossed the line by 30 centimetres, shook his head and, even without the referee’s whistle to end this stolen match, he headed to the locker room because it wasn’t worth it.”
“Overcome with anger and starting a revolt that engulfed his soul against the motherland that he had defended so many times with teeth and nails, he threw the captain’s armband to the ground,” she went on.
“Incredible coldness because his intention was indeed to throw the armband at the referee’s face for what he and his assistant had done against all of us.”
Katia Aveiro is the younger of his two sisters. And Cristiano Ronaldo’s sister defends the Juventus striker on social media.
“Cristiano is a symbol of the nation. People in their noble wisdom say: ‘He who has no feelings cannot be the son of good people.’,” she said.
“However, even though we are all disgusted by what happened, some ‘experts’ on television dared to criticize Cristiano’s gesture.”
This is not the first time she’s spoken up for her brother. When he was afflicted with coronavirus, she took to social media to speak on it.
