Portugal captain and Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has been spotted making out with a mystery blonde as he continues to recover from a knee injury sustained during the UEFA Euro 2016 final. While he partied with his potential love interest, Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane regretfully announced that he is set to miss both the UEFA Super Cup and Real Madrid’s opening La Liga game.
The Sun has released exclusive photos said to have been taken from inside Pacha nightclub in the Spanish island of Ibiza. In the grainy photos, the football star could be seen nuzzling the neck of a blonde woman, who is yet to be identified. The pair appear to be partying with a female friend in the VIP section of the club. The mystery blonde is the latest among a string of women who had been seen partying with the Real Madrid star since becoming single. His long term relationship with Russian model Irina Shayk ended in Jan. 2015.
Cristiano Ronaldo is spending his time enjoying the off-season as he recovers from an injury that took him out of the final match of the 2016 European Championship. The match was played back in July 10, where Portugal emerged victorious against France after extra time. Cristiano Ronaldo tearfully left the pitch on the 25th minute, after knocking his knees together during a nasty tackle.
Despite already having had nearly a month to recover, ESPN reports that Zidane announced on Friday, that Ronaldo will miss the UEFA Super Cup on Aug. 9. Zidane’s statement, which was made during Real Madrid’s off-season tour in North America, also casts doubt on Cristiano Ronaldo’s return for the opening of the Spanish La Liga. “We can’t just put him in after not playing for a month. From the Super Cup to the start of the season there’s 12 days, so we’re not sure, but he’ll be with us. But I don’t think he’ll play at least for the first [league] match,” he said.
