There was no Ronaldo to see at this year's Ballon d'or ceremony on Monday.
A title, which went to Lionel Messi for the sixth time. Number two on the list was for once not the eternal rival Cristiano Ronaldo, but Liverpool's forsvarsstjerne Virgil van Dijk.
Already a week ago, several media reported that Lionel Messi would run away with the victory, and it was apparently an overriding reason to, that Ronaldo would not participate at the ceremony.
the Absence, of course, received considerable attention, and van Dijk could not restrain themselves in order to come up with a cocky comment when a reporter before the show asked what he thought about in advance to have one competitor fewer:
"Was he a rival before?," replied Virgil van Dijk.
The opinion was too much for Ronaldo's sister, Katia Aveiro, who on Instagram strikes back with great force.
'I think there are people who live in the wild frustrated. And unrealistic. What humility. It is quite clear that Ronaldo does not win the evening's prize. Although he has won collective titles. But that's another discussion, and we gonna get to see the truth about football. So, dear Virgil, the places you are going, was Cristiano Ronaldo and have been there thousands of times,' writes Katia Aveiro, who has over a million followers on Instagram:
'So, my dear Virgil. Ronaldo was the triple champion of the country, where you have the game in years, and you still have not touched the cup. Cristiano Ronaldo was the best player and the most scoring player in the country, where you play, Virgil. In addition, he was even younger than you.'
And her rage continues just:
'Then, dear Virgil, took Cristiano Ronaldo to other places and was the best player in the club's history. Real Madrid, does that tell you something, Virgil? Perhaps enough, for it was the club, with this Cristiano guy who even beat you in the Champions League final. Them have Cristiano has already won five of Virgil,' writes Katia Aveiro.
Cristiano Ronaldo and even used his Monday night at a different awards ceremony.
In Italy he got a plaster on the wound. when he won the title as player of the year in Italy.
"I would like to thank my teammates and the players that have voted for me. After two years in Italy, I can say that it is a very difficult league," said Cristiano Ronaldo.
