Dolores Aveiro, mother of Cristiano Ronaldo, publicly expressed her support for an open letter written by a Portuguese journalist in which Erik ten Hag was referred to as a “miserable footnote in history” and told to “f*** off”.
Remember how Ronaldo said he doesn’t respect Ten Hag in an explosive interview with Piers Morgan a few days ago? In his assessment, he also lambasted Ralf Rangnick, Wayne Rooney, and Gary Neville as well as the Manchester United owners.
Dolores has responded to the shocking interview for the first time amid rumors that Manchester United is getting ready to fire Ronaldo for a contract violation.
She took to her Instastory to share an open letter from journalist Luis Osorio, which slammed Ten Hag. She also attached a clapping emoji.
Osorio had written;
“As far as the Dutchman who has managed you in these last few months goes, I just want to laugh. How can you compare what you are to a miserable footnote in football history!”
The journalist went on to describe Ronaldo as someone who “designed his life as you thought it should be, not as others thought was best for you.”
“Some drool for you to fail, others really want to be for the umpteenth time Cristiano Ronaldo. The kid who was not destined to be born, but your mother’s final instinct allowed him to see the world.
“The kid who suffered from his father’s alcoholism, but who made it a weapon to never give up. The kid who was born in a very poor house on the outskirts of Funchal, but who today gives his name to the airport where millionaires arrive every day who have no idea what poverty is.
“The kid who came to live in Lisbon alone at the age of 12, the one who cried because of loneliness and being mocked every time he opened his mouth but today speaks several languages. The kid who became the best in the world.”
