How I met Cristiano Ronaldo and my life changed forever – Georgina Rodriguez

‘Five years ago, my life changed. Thanks to love, my life is now a dream. Nothing in life has come easy. I know what it is to have nothing and to have everything,’ she said.

Georgina Rodriguez’s new Netflix series, I Am Georgina, premiered on Thursday and tells the tale of how she met her football megastar boyfriend, Cristiano Ronaldo.
The pair relate their distinct experiences of their first encounter at Gucci in Madrid, where Georgina worked as a saleswoman, in the episode titled The Day That Changed My Life.

Cristiano had stopped by with his eldest son Junior for a shopping spree.

It was a Thursday in summer, Georgina recalled.

She says the meeting was fortuitous. She ought to have closed at 5pm, but a colleague called and asked her to wait another 30 minutes for a female client coming to pick coats at their Gucci store.

Cristiano Ronaldo bodyguards are being investigated in Portugal — Here is why

Cristiano Ronaldo’s twin bodyguards are being investigated in Portugal for working illegally for the superstar, local reports say.
Brothers Sergio and Jorge Ramalheiro, who previously served in an elite special forces unit in Afghanistan, are on unpaid leave from the Portuguese police while they carry out private security for the Manchester United striker.

But it is illegal to work in Portugal during their period of leave without permission from the force, according to Observador.
The pair could even go on trial for providing unauthorised close protection and will face disciplinary proceedings when they return to the Public Security Police force, reports say.
They were placed under investigation after they were seen on two occasions working for Ronaldo in Lisbon while on their leave.

Champions League: Villarreal 0-2 Man Utd – Cristiano Ronaldo and Jason Sancho score

One of the biggest problems for Manchester United’s interim manager, or even the interim’s interim, is that certain players have got into so many bad habits under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that the flaws cannot be swiftly erased. Meaning when Ronaldo loses the ball – which happens, even to the best of them – and Juan Foyth skips around Anthony Martial to bring it out from the back, Martial shows all the enthusiasm for the chase that an aged, arthritic bloodhound might for a thrown stick.

He doesn’t want to run anymore; he wants to be left alone. Later, put away on the left, Martial showed none of the pace that was once a great asset, doing a poor impersonation of a player who wanted to get a cross in, rather than delivering the real thing. He got there, just, but it took a little too much effort and he didn’t have the ball under control, failing to keep it in play. Entering the final minute, Ronaldo set off on the counter finding Rashford and Fernandes, who moved the ball on to Sancho. He had a good game. Hard graft in the first-half, hard to contain in the second. This was his first goal for the club, the shot thundering off the underside of the bar, a real looker of a goal. It was no more than his performance deserved.
