Cristiano Ronaldo and his wife Georgina Rodriguez have posted a sweet photo,
of their baby daughter ahead of their post-season vacation.
After a demanding season on both the local and international fronts, the Portuguese superstar,
can finally spend some quality time with his family.
Despite the fact that the Premier League concluded a few weeks ago,
he was named to Portugal’s team for the latest round of UEFA Nations League matches.
The 2016 European champions were defeated 1-0 by Switzerland to finish their current run of games,
with Cristiano Ronaldo ruled out due to injury. He’ll now take some time off,
to heal and recover before focusing on the Red Devils’ debut season under Erik ten Hag’s guidance.
He and his partner Rodriguez posted heartfelt photos of his family aboard a private plane before their vacation. In an Instagram image on Rodrgiuez’s profile, Cristiano Jr., Eva, Matteo, and Alana Martina were all shown encircling their father.
Bella Esmarelda, who was only two months old when she was photographed, was held in her mother’s arms.
She was one of two twins the couple was expecting early this year,
but the couple’s newborn boy died.
After the duo issued a statement confirming the tragic death,
a flood of heartfelt messages from the footballing world and beyond poured in.
Following Rodriguez’s lead before to their vacation,
Ronaldo followed suit after the family of seven arrived at their location.
“Vacation with love,” he captioned a photograph of them all seated around the dinner table.
What do you think Ronaldo’s goal total will be next season?
Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
Ronaldo will surely be hoping that his journey overseas would provide him,
with some much-needed relaxation ahead of what is set to be a very challenging campaign next term.
Erik ten Hag, the former Ajax manager, is expected to take over at Old Trafford,
with the goal of improving the Red Devils’ present fortunes after their worst-ever Premier League season last season.
Ronaldo has urged the Dutchman to be given time to imprint his mark on the team,
after scoring 24 goals for United last season following his emotional homecoming from Juventus.
“What I know about him is that he performed a fantastic job for Ajax and that he’s an experienced coach,
” he told Man Utd’s official website. We must, however, give him time.
“Things must alter in the way he desires. Of course, I hope we succeed because if you succeed,
Manchester will succeed as well. I wish him the best of luck, and let us hope that we will win trophies next year.”
The Red Devils are scheduled to report for pre-season testing on Monday, June 27th,
however Ronaldo is unlikely to be among them owing to international obligations and will be given an additional grace time.
