One game, two goals, three points. Cristiano is back in town. The Portuguese immediately helped Manchester United to victory against Newcastle on his big return. The floodgates opened for Mama Dolores, tears of happiness flowed.
As if it came straight out of a fairy tale book. Cristiano Ronaldo, the prodigal son, yesterday returned through the large gate onto the pitch at Manchester United, the club where he grew up. As if that wasn’t enough, he paved the way for United against Newcastle with two goals.
An attentive spectator in the stands was Dolores Aveiro. Cristiano’s mother obviously didn’t want to miss her son’s return for anything and had flown from Madeira to England earlier this week.
A photo of 66-year-old Dolores is circulating on Twitter, who let her tears run free after CR7’s goal. In a stadium where 75,000 people chanted her son’s name, almost everyone wore his name on the back. Also, girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez and his oldest son, Cristiano Jr., were in attendance.
However, in an interview with the Daily Mail, Ronaldo made it clear that his mother is not allowed to watch the big games. In the spring of this year, Dolores was rushed to hospital after suffering a heart attack.
“Look, I don’t have a father anymore. I don’t want to lose my mother too, so you can’t watch quarterfinals, semifinals, or finals. She’s getting too nervous, although I don’t understand why.” However, we think that Dolores was happy that she could be present yesterday.
