During the infamous red card incident, Maximiliano Allegri’s rule at Allianz Stadium was that any player to receive a red card during a match would have to buy the entire team a gift. Apparently, it took some time — about two months. But the team eventually received their gift of an Apple iMac.
Do you think this pricey penalty brought him to tears? Let’s face it — he probably never even felt it. Either way, his teammates must have appreciated the gesture!
Ronaldo’s temper tantrums have early beginnings. He was expelled from school after an altercation with his teacher. When questioned about his outburst, he said the teacher disrespected him. This wouldn’t be the last fit that he’d throw. In 2010 he started a fight with his own teammate, Nani.
Ronaldo was about to score one of the best goals in his career when Nani intercepted the ball. Suffice to say, Ronaldo was not happy about this.
Ronaldo received his first ULC red card in 2019 while playing for Juventus. During the match, Ronaldo pulled the hair of Jeison Murillo. This infamous red card was given by referee Felix Brych, who sent Ronaldo for an early shower.
As you can imagine, this upset Ronaldo greatly. Whether he should have been sent off is a matter of opinion. That aside, Ronaldo’s reaction goes down in history as one of the most vigorous protests in football history.
Trump Tower Apartment
Cristiano Ronaldo owns an apartment in the famous Trump Towers. Two thousand five hundred and nine square feet of Versailles wooden flooring dating back to the eighteenth century.
This testament to his obscene wealth cost him measly $18.5 million. This is a mere pocket change for this superstar! One of Ronaldo's homes is a mansion on the Portuguese Riviera. This is a small portion of his property portfolio which is worth over $40 million.
Kick of King Midas
Real Madrid came in second in the 2011 Champions League, La Liga, and lost the semi-finals. That aside, Ronaldo was awarded the European golden boot award for scoring 40 goals during that season. The boot probably would have cluttered up his already crowded trophy cabinet.
So Ronaldo decided to auction it off. The boot was sold for a smooth $1.2 million. All of which was put toward building schools in the Middle East.
