Why I Get Mad At My Son Drinking Coke~Ronaldo

Published

Cristiano Ronaldo won’t pressure his son to become a footballer – even if the Juventus star does get irritated when he drinks coke and eats crisps.

Cristiano Junior, 10, plays in the Juventus academy but his famous father insists he doesn’t necessarily have to follow in his footsteps.

The Juventus and Portugal star, 35, was speaking after being named the Player of the Century at the Globe Soccer Awards in Dubai on Sunday night.

‘We’ll see if my son will become a great footballer,’ he said.

‘Sometimes he drinks coke and eats crisps and it irritates me, he knows that.

‘Sometimes I tell my son to take a dip in cold water to recover after a run on the treadmill and he says: ‘Dad, it’s so cold there’. That’s fine, he is only 10 years old.

‘I always tell him that it takes work and dedication to have success. I won’t pressure him to become a footballer but I would like it.

‘The most important thing is to become the best in his field, whether it is football or medicine.’

Cristiano Jr certainly made an impression during his first year in the Juventus academy after joining in 2018, scoring 58 times in 28 matches for the under-nine team, as well as providing 18 assists.

Tuttosport reported that he scored four goals on his debut for Juventus in September 2018 and in April 2019, he netted seven in a single half against Maritimo.

Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has stated that Nigeria is not yet good enough to win the FIFA World Cup yet.

Rohr who stated this in a YouTube interview session with New Central TV also said Africa cannot challenge other continents for the coveted title.

“We are not ready to win the world cup, for some reason, First reason for me is the organisation, still a lots of problems in travelling arrangement, preparations and venue for games.

“France is the champions at the moment, where are they playing? They are playing in PSG, Bayern Munich. Four of them are world champions at their clubs also.

“When you have your players in the best clubs there is a probability that you are the best team in the world.

“So what we have in Nigeria for example, we have our players in Fulham, in West Bromwich. It’s not Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Manchester United or Barcelona. But the other ones have their players there.

“So it would be a miracle if we actually win the world cup, Rohr said.

CL: Liverpool / Leipzig Clash Doubtful Over New German Travel Rules

Published

on

Germany’s strict new travel restrictions have cast doubt over RB Leipzig’s Champions League last 16 meeting with Liverpool, after a government spokesperson told AFP on Monday that the rules do not exempt professional athletes.

 

The ban on travellers from countries hit by new, more contagious coronavirus variants such as Britain contains “no special provision for professional sportspeople”, an interior ministry spokesperson told AFP.

 

Introduced on Saturday and in place until February 17, the new rules could scupper Premier League champions Liverpool’s trip to Leipzig’s Red Bull Arena the day before.

 

Unless they are granted special exemption, Liverpool staff and players would be unable to enter Germany from Britain according to the rules.

 

While coach Jurgen Klopp would be allowed into the country as a German national, he would have to leave most of his team behind.

 

Germany introduced the tougher travel restrictions on certain countries in a bid to limit the spread of new coronavirus variants.

 

The countries affected by the ban are Britain, Ireland, Portugal, Brazil and South Africa, as well as the southern African kingdoms of Lesotho and Eswatini.

 

The entry restrictions cover arrivals by air, bus, rail and sea, and allow exceptions for medical workers and others in key jobs.

 

Yet the interior ministry spokesperson said Monday that there would only be “a few, narrow exemptions”.
