Sport are the patrons in the press for the ‘Barca are better than Real Madrid’ narrative, and they always seem primed to try to discredit Ronaldo’s standing.
Cristiano has reportedly gone back to Morocco this week for yet another trip to north Africa.
That’s opened the door for Sport to claim that Ronaldo’s trip was made without the knowledge of the club, and that could cause a problem with president Florentino Perez.
Sport also claim that Perez has reached out to the king of Morocco, Mohamed VI, about Ronaldo’s visits. The Real Madrid president has asked for reports every time Ronaldo enters the country.
In a final swipe, Sport claim that Cristiano “made matters worse” with a recent Instagram picture of two glasses with alcohol. But why is that so bad? That’s left open to readers to puzzle over.
It’s worth noting Ronaldo was on a two day break given to the entire Real Madrid squad.
