Cristiano Ronaldo has asked his mother not to see the game between Man United and Newcastle this weekend as it could serve as his debut game for the Red Devils.
CR7 made a return to the Theater Of Dreams on transfer deadline day, 12 years after leaving for Real Madrid on a world record fee as at then.
The 36-year-old signed a two-year deal with an option to extend that for a further 12 months.
Just two years into his first stint at United, the Portugese lost his father Jose Dinis in 2005. His death was caused by liver failure which was attributed to alcoholism.
In an interview with Dailymail, the five-time Footballer Of The Year Award winner reiterated his love for his mother and is not ready to let her go at the moment.
“She’s not allowed now to watch big games,
“I say, ‘Listen, I don’t have a father any more. 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.”
“My mum is the pillar of the family, and what I have today is because she always supported me,” he said to Piers Morgan of the Daily Mail
