Real Madrid and Portuguese International, Cristiano Ronaldo is 33 years old today. The current world best footballer shared a picture of himself holding his 33rd birthday cake on his Instagram page with over 120 million fans whom he thanked for their messages.
Recall that, It’s no secret that Cristiano Ronaldo pays great attention to the way he looks.
The Real Madrid star, however, took vanity to a whole new level and got mocked on social media last Sunday after Real Madrid’s 7-1 thrashing of Deportivo La Coruna in the Spanish league.
Cristiano Ronaldo had received a defender’s high boot to the head after heading home his second goal.
Ronaldo’s bravery left him lying on the ground with a gash and a bloodied face.
What upset social media was that after the team doctor raced onto the pitch to patch him up, Ronaldo couldn’t resist grabbing the doc’s phone to survey the damage.
The doctor had cleaned up the blood spilling down the Portuguese superstar’s face when Ronaldo asked for the doctor’s phone so he could take a look at the extent of his injuries.
After assessing the damage, Ronaldo left the field, despite his side having already made three substitutions, although the much-needed victory was already secured by then.
This spontaneous show of self-love saw some fans and pundits give the Portuguese poser a hard time.
Real ended a three- match winless streak at home, easing the pressure on coach Zinedine Zidane.
Gareth Bale and Nacho Fernandez also scored twice, and Luka Modric added another goal for Madrid as they regained fourth place in the standings, cutting the deficit to Barcelona to a still massive 16 points.
With a game in hand, Madrid are five points behind third-place Valencia, and one point in front of fifth-placed Villarreal.
Meanwhile, there are reports that Real Madrid has told Cristiano Ronaldo they will allow him to negotiate a summer transfer with either Manchester United or PSG his likeliest destination, according to reports.
