In an interview with Piers Morgan for the Daily Mail, Cristiano Ronaldo revealed why he doesn’t allow his mother to watch the ‘big games’ he’s involved in. He said: “She’s not allowed now to watch big games.
“I say, ‘Listen, I don’t have a father anymore. I don’t want to lose my mum, too, so you’re not going to watch the quarter-finals, semi-finals, or finals.’
“She gets so nervous, I don’t understand why. She is not allowed now to watch big games. I get friends to stay with her and she goes for walks around the house.
“She fainted two times in the stadium. She is nervous. She worked hard to give her best for her children and especially for me because I’m the youngest in the family.”
Maria Dolores Aveiro is known to be Ronaldo’s number one fan, and she often posts her son on social media before and after his big games.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother probably will be able to see her son’s second debut for Man United on Saturday when he dons the no.7 shirt once again and faces Newcastle United in the Premier League.
Ronaldo has played across four nations during his career including Portugal, England, Spain, and Italy with Sporting, Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Juventus respectively. Now back at United for a second spell after three years at Juventus, the 36-year-old legend is likely going to see out his career with the Red Devils.
