Sick of the saga dragging on ?
Read on... ( no, it's not about football, it's about slavery ).



Ronaldo ‘slave' claims followed
by transfer to sweat shop in Mali



Claims that Cristiano Ronaldo's employment situation
was a form of modern slavery have been given extra
credence this weekend after the world player of the year
was transferred to a small clothing factory in Mali where
he will earn $40 dollars a week.

Compared to a slave by FIFA's Sepp Blatter,
the former £10 million a year Manchester United star
has now been forced to swap his luxury Cheshire home
for a mattress on the factory floor, in an unventilated,
windowless room shared with the other garment workers
who make cheap clothes destined for Western consumers.

‘At first I thought the slavery comparison was a fair one' said Ronaldo.

‘After all, I was being given no choice about where I worked
and Manchester United claimed to own me.
But on the plus side I suppose I was earning £10 million a year,
and none of us in this sweat shop even get close to that.'

Local workers at the factory were pleased to meet
the new high profile arrival.

‘I spend all day working on these replica shirts'
said Modibo Soninke from behind his sewing machine.

‘It's good to see what a famous slave actually looks like".

Under the terms of the transfer agreement,
Ronaldo must still be allowed time for football.
But only if he reaches his productivity targets
for the day.

‘I've got three hundred of them to stitch
before dawn or I don't get breakfast, but
it is better than being a highly paid footballer
playing for Manchester United and living in luxury'

'I now understand the word "slave" properly' said Ronaldo.

LOL!

Sal...... thanks for the read, but a mattress on the floor is really to good for the brat.
A mat made of rattan would suffice and give him a true slave's existence.

FOOTBALLER Cristiano Ronaldo is being lined up to star in a multi-million dollar
remake of the epic TV series Roots.

Producers say the star's treatment at the hands of Manchester United make
him the perfect choice to portray the young African slave who is beaten by
his brutal masters.

The Portuguese winger said he had been traumatised by 'outrageous'
demands that he honour the £125,000 a week, legally-binding contract,
which has brought him only, misery, adulation and Gemma Atkinson.

Speaking from the titanium gazebo in the rose garden of his 31-room
mansion, Ronaldo said: "I feel I can relate to the suffering of African slaves.

"If anything, it is worse, because footballers cannot sing while we work,
whereas they had time to develop gospel music during their 16-hours shifts
before dropping dead from exhaustion."

In the series a young African boy is dragged from his homeland and shipped
to America where he is forced to work in the fields by a cruel and violent
plantation owner.

"The similarities are uncanny, though admittedly, the Lear Jet that flew me
from Lisbon to Manchester wasn't packed with 150 other players sleeping
head-to-toe."

Ronaldo also conceded that, while the slave-master in Roots administered
brutal beatings, Man Utd boss Sir Alex Ferguson had nurtured his talent,
lavished him with praise and turned him into one of the best footballers in
the world.

"But without the freedom to do whatever I want, wherever I want, for
whatever fee I want, I am exactly the same as a cotton picker forced to
live in a shed, dying at the age of 32."

He added: "I know the people will love my acting. Already, in the streets,
I hear many of them calling me 'Kunta'."

Lol pretty funny.

Ronaldo doesn't deserve the talent he's got.

  • United don't seem to want to let him leave.
  • Nike will cut off a huge CR7 deal with him if he leaves.
  • Pele said he should honour his contract.
  • Cannavaro & Sneijder said the players at Real don't want someone paid so much with them.
  • Real can't afford to buy Ronaldo out of a 4 year contract.
  • His mother and sister have both said he's staying.
  • An old Munich survivor crapped him out.
  • Every major club except Real has urged United to not give in to Real.
What are the chances Ronaldo leaves? :(
