Portugal international Andre Silva has heaped praise on his skipper Cristiano Ronaldo, who has managed to silence his critics throughout his professional career.
The four-time Champions League winner is currently serving a five-match domestic ban after he shoved referee Ricardo de Burgos during the first leg of Real Madrid's Spanish Super Cup triumph over Barcelona.
Even Ronaldo's biggest fans struggled not to raise a smirk at the bizarre bronze statue unveiled in his honor this year. While the sculptor could maybe use a little more tuition before taking on their next big project, the good news is that the Portuguese star is going to be the cover boy for the upcoming FIFA 18.
Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo began his preparations for the new season with a visit to a Madrid court in Pozuelo de Alcaron, where he had a hearing for his tax fraud allegations. The Portugal international enjoyed a top campaign with the European champions last term as he celebrated a La Liga and Champions League double.
Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly skipped the third-place play-off against Mexico in the Confederations Cup in order to hold talks with Real Madrid en route to the United States.
The 32-year-old had his best performance in the Los Blancos shirt last term as he guided the Spanish outfit to a La Liga and Champions League double – the first time the club have achieved it since 1958.
