PRANKSTER Man Utd stars have bought Cristiano Ronaldo a new little ron-about after he pranged his Ferrariâ€” a toy PEDAL CAR!
Grinning teammates had a whipround to replace his crashed Â£200,000 supercar with a red plastic kiddies' modelâ€”a bargain at forty quid.
They even stuck a Ferrari badge on the front and gave it a CR7 reg plate.
Then they left it parked at the club's training groundâ€”right next to the Â£140,000 Bentley Continental GT Speed fleet-footed Ronaldo's been running around in since the smash ten days ago.
And when the FIFA World Footballer of the Year came out of the gym, he went into fits of laughter over his new motor.
A club insider revealed: â€œHe thought it was hilarious and said he was going to play on it as soon as he got home.
â€œIt's fair to say Ronny has had more than his fair share of stick since the accident. He couldn't stop going on about his Ferrari and how beautiful it was. So a few of the United lads thought it would be funny to play a trick on him.
â€œSo they all chipped in and bought a cheap plastic pedal car from the local toy shop.
â€œAll the lads were laughing as he scooped it up and put it in the back of his car. It put a smile on his faceâ€”and he said he'll give it to a local hospital or good cause.â€
Now he plans to get his other bigger toy FIXED rather than have it written off after crashing it into a tunnel wall on the way to United's Carrington training ground.
The Â£110,000-a-week winger waited 12 months to take delivery of the Ferrari 599 GTB and has told team-mates that having it mended will be a lot quicker than joining another waiting list for a new one to be built in Italy.
Haha..with these kind of jokes around & these kind of cheeky teamates...i just dont understand how can anyone feel unhappy being at manchester united.
