Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has warned critics to “leave me alone” in a viral video message released on Friday.
Cristiano Ronaldo had another successful season on the pitch for Los Blancos, winning his third Ballon d’Or in January, but he also came under fire for a controversial birthday party and endured a public break-up with long-term girlfriend Irina Shayk earlier in the year.
In the past week, the press published news about the footballer dancing on a yacht with a group of friends and urinating on a street in Saint Tropez and also cheating rumours with his ex girl friend Irina shayk.
Here is the Ronaldo’s Video Message:
“It’s been a tough year but you’ve [my fans] always been there, showing that you’re faithful,” he began.
“I never talk about my private life but I want to take this opportunity to say that in recent weeks the Press have tried to speak ill of me – I have a new girlfriend every day, I do this, I do that…
“Leave me alone! Let me do my job as I do every year and don’t try to damage my image because you’re not going to succeed.”
