Cristiano Ronaldo’s sister Katia angers Juventus fans after gushing post about brother’s transfer return to Man Utd

CRISTIANO RONALDO'S sister angered Juventus fans with a gushing post about her brother's Manchester United return.

The Portuguese superstar, 36, agreed a stunning deal to Old Trafford on Friday.

And the club announced the transfer, subject to personal terms, a visa, and the completion of the medical.

SunSport understands United have handed the five-time Ballon d'Or winner a two-year contract at the Theatre of Dreams.

But Ronaldo's sister Katia Aveiro came in for a barrage of messages after a bizarre upload to her Instagram.

She previously caused controversy for labelling coronavirus the 'biggest fraud I've ever seen' and called pundits 'manipulative and blind' for criticising her brother when he threw the Portugal captain's armband to the ground.

Katia shared an image of the five-time Ballon d'Or winner in a black shirt with a United crest, tight trousers and crown holding a trident on a throne.

The large letters read: "Ele Voltou," meaning 'he returned' in Portuguese.


The caption said: "Welcome home my love, welcome to the place you deserve.

"What happiness, what pride. Thank you for being this great man."

Plenty showed their support for the Ronaldo family but there were some furious Juve fans in the comments berating the sudden departure.

One wrote: "The place you deserve….. We hope he goes to play the Europa League this b*****d."

Another added: "I'm sorry but he had a wrong behaviour towards the club and the fans – if he wanted to leave, he had to do it before and not the last days of the transfer market."

Many Old Lady supporters were left frustrated by the manner of the exit.

Yesterday Cristiano told me that he has no intention of continuing at Juventus

Ronaldo insisted he would stay at Juventus just days ago before making a dramatic U-turn and telling boss Max Allegri he wanted out.

He collected his things from the training ground and said goodbye to team-mates before boarding his private jet to Lisbon.

Speaking on Friday, Allegri said: "On Saturday I told him that he would be on the bench at Udinese, he told me he would stay.

"Then there is the transfer market, the situation has changed and it must be accepted – at Juve the players who want to must be those who stay.

 "Yesterday Cristiano told me that he has no intention of continuing at Juventus.

"This is why he will not be called up tomorrow, he did not train yesterday and now we can talk about [the] Empoli [game]. That is most important."

But ex-Juventus chairman Giovanni Cobolli Gigli was keen to see the back of Ronaldo at the Allianz Stadium earlier this week.

He said: "I've always been honest: signing Ronaldo was a mistake. It's impossible to recoup the investment and it will remain that way.

"He's a great player, but I have to be honest – the sooner he leaves, the better for him and for Juventus.

"Ronaldo hampers Juventus' attack. Without him, they can do excellent things in collective terms."
