Imagine being in a stadium with 45000 Ronaldos
Real Madrid are distributing 45,000 Cristiano Ronaldo masks to fans attending the Bernabeu for tonight’s Champions League clash against Galatasaray.
The club have accepted the proposal put forward by two of the largest supporters groups, and they will hand out the lookalike face masks before the start of the Champions League Group B encounter.
Officials have also sanctioned a 10-metre wide banner that will read “Our unconditional support for ‘Comandante’ Cristiano.
For the Ballon d’Or and La Decima”, relating to the upcoming world player of the year award in January as well as Real’s obsession with winning a record tenth European Cup.
There will also be a six-metre-high banner draped over one side of the stadium that reads: “We are all Cristiano.”
The only person who will not be Cristiano Ronaldo tonight is Ronaldo himself, as he is rested by coach Carlo Ancelotti due to an injury niggle.
The Portugal forward has yet again been in superb form for Real Madrid this season, scoring 30 goals in 21 games in all competitions.
Ronaldo is widely believed to be in a three-way fight for this year’s Ballon d’Or with Bayern Munich’s Franck Ribery and Barcelona’s four-time winner Lionel Messi.
