Ronaldo's sister hits back at Virgil Van Dijk's jibe

Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk finished second behind Lionel Messi in Monday’s Ballon D'Or award ceremony in Paris — the latest in a plethora of football awards — with Cristiano Ronaldo third.

Ronaldo was absent from the presentation for the prize he has won five times, preferring to go to Milan where he was voted Serie A’s Player of the Year.

Asked by a Dutch reporter about Ronaldo’s absence, the Dutchman replied: “Why, was he a candidate?”, provoking an Instagram tirade from Ronaldo’s sister, Katia Aveiro.“Dear Virgil, from where you are now, Ronaldo has come and gone one thousand times,” she hit back.

Well well.So, Cristiano Ronaldo’s sister posted on Instagram a bitter reply to Van Dijk joke.But...Was she really the one who wrote that or Cristiano himself?Apparently there was an earlier post, then edited, that shows Cristiano talking in first person...

“Cristiano was three-times league champion in that country where you have played for years and still haven’t put your hands on ‘the tin’,” she said, referring to her brother’s Premier League titles with Manchester United.

After listing more Ronaldo achievements with Real Madrid, she said: “Now, Virgil, go and win some of those titles that really matter and we will talk again. When you have a hand full of them, maybe you can sit at the same table as Cristiano.”
