A day after the game, through her Instagram account, she asked the Portuguese striker to return home.
“I really wanted him to come home, leave the national team and sit next to us so we could hug him and tell him that everything is fine, remind him of what he conquered and from which home he came. there,” she said. “You’re big and the little ones don’t realize how huge you are… Come to your house. That’s where they understand you, where they hug you. As it always was. Where you have all the gratitude. And not ingratitude. Thank you Ronaldo”.
Despite the outburst and criticism, the star’s sister recognized that it is only up to CR7 to decide whether to remain in the Portuguese national team or return home. Regardless of what he does, Kátia stated that she will be with the ace.
“Until death,” he added.
