In Portugal categorical: Severe depression torments Ronaldo


Cristiano Ronaldo is going through the most difficult period of his career, and perhaps of his life. The Portuguese media came out today with the information that the star is depressed, and this also affects his performances on the field.

Unlike in the Premier League, Cristiano Ronaldo was given a place in Manchester United’s starting line-up for the Europa League clash against Omonia Nicosia, but was unable to score his second goal of the season. It’s obvious that his confidence has sunk to a career low, but what worries fans is that Ronaldo is showing signs of depression. This can be seen mostly from his movements, gestures and shouting after missed chances.

The Portuguese media are adamant that the cause of his condition is the stillborn baby, one of two twins who were due to be born a few months ago. It is known that the girl survived, but not the boy, who caused great emotional pain to the Portuguese footballer.

His woeful form also drew criticism at home after defeat by Spain in the last round of the Nations League. Ronaldo was literally crucified by the media, so he had to be defended by his sister.

Against Omonia, the Portuguese tried as many as 8 shots in over 90 minutes on the field, and only 1 of them was accurate. He was chasing his 700th goal in club football but will have to wait a little longer to score it. Since the start of the season, CR7 has just one goal in 33 shots on target for United and his country, the goal coming against Sheriff from the penalty spot.

So in recent weeks, the only good news for Cristiano is the fact that Manchester United agreed to a mutual termination of his contract and from January 1, the striker will be able to move to a new team, where he will get more chances to appear.
