Ronaldo is being re-examined
Ronaldo, 35, was screened for health violation in October after testing positive for COVID-19 on the Portugal national team. He and Italy’s sports ministers embroiled in a public argument in which each indirectly accused the other of lying.
The Portuguese Football Association announced on October 13th that Ronaldo had tested positive for COVID-19 on the national team. He left the national team while quarantined with the virus and rode a private ambulance back to his home in Turin, Italy.
This led to an investigation by Italian Sports Minister Vincenzo Spada, in which he said Ronaldo may have broken protocol. Ronaldo shot back, denying the claim by saying, “It’s just a lie.”
“They said I broke Italian law and this and that … it’s all lies, I did everything right,” he said in October. “We did everything right – left that [Portugal] Team, in the ambulance, arrived in Turin … I had no contact with anyone. “
Spadafor later said he would not go on with it “forever” and would not discuss it further after making brief additional comments on the matter.
“The fame and skills of certain players do not entitle them to be arrogant, disrespectful to the institutions or to lie,” he said.
“On the contrary, the more well known you are, the more you should feel the responsibility of thinking before speaking and setting a good example.
