When Lionel Messi wins the Ballon d’Or, a volcano erupts somewhere in Portugal.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s main defender, his sister Katia Aveiro, has ‘liked’ a post by a Portuguese influencer – a photo of Cristiano posing with all his individual awards while saying: “earned, not given”.
This reaction comes immediately after Cristiano himself ‘liked’ the video of a pro-Madrid journalist mocking Messi for winning the ‘undeserved’ Ballon d’Or.
Everyone is so obsessed and jealous of what the Argentinian has done… it happens all the time now.
But the 36-year-old has continued to thrive as he won his eighth career Ballon d’Or, a record and a footballing milestone.
It is not the first time that Katia Aveiro reacts in these kinds of forms, so it is not surprising.
