But in this case, manager Sir Alex Ferguson will be pleased that his star player is keeping himself out of trouble. That’s because, as the Daily Star report, Cristiano Ronaldo is playing a lot of bingo after receiving a DVD game for Christmas (from his mother or gradmother presumably).
“It can be very exciting because you can be there waiting for a long time for just the one number to make the game complete,” he told a sports paper back in his homeland, Portugal.
“Then you see one of your friends you are playing against get his lucky number before you.”
Bingo companies everywhere will be delighted by the publicity generated from the Manchester United number seven’s revelation. Is the Portuguese international about to join the blue rinse brigade for a spot of ‘eyes down’ at his local club?
