On the pitch, Cristiano Ronaldo was delighted by the Manchester United fans last Wednesday. The striker scored the winning goal (2-1) against Villarreal in the last minute of the second day of the Champions League match. However, reality hits the footballer hard when he returns home due to the shortage of petrol in the UK.
The Portuguese player is known to be a fan of high-end cars. What’s more, he added a Bentley worth over €250,000 to his collection just a few days ago. However, queues at gas stations continue to grow to try to get fuel for millions of vehicles. Including Cristiano.
According to information from the British newspaper “The Sun”, the Portuguese security men had to wait six hours and 40 minutes at a gas station last Wednesday, as the striker was focused with the aim of committing to the Champions League.
But unfortunately for the ‘CR7’, according to the aforementioned media, Cristiano’s customers did not get gasoline for the new Portuguese car, which will have to wait until it is used.
“The two men looked tired from waiting in the rain. Ronaldo could be at home like everyone else if this continued“A source pointed to the same medium.
The crisis caused by fuel shortages has hit the entire UK, which has set a limit of £30 (about €35) to ensure a fair supply. Thus, it remains to be seen how Cristiano Ronaldo and other Premier League figures have dealt with the crisis.
Cristiano Ronaldo surpassed former Real Madrid player Iker Casillas as a footballer, on Wednesday, as the most matches he played in the history of the Champions League, after the duel against Villarreal, belonging to the second day of the group stage.
The 36-year-old Portugal international played 178 games in the first continental championship – split between Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus -, one over the 177 games Iker Casillas played with the white team (150) and Porto before his withdrawal.
Third place in the standings is still for former Barcelona player Xavi Hernandez with 151, all of them with FC Barcelona, and in fourth place in a tie appears Argentine Lionel Messi, who reaps the same number, with 149 of them played with Barcelona. And the last two with Paris Saint-Germain.
