Cristiano Ronaldo’s longtime partner has been in full soccer mom mode since the beginning of the 2022 World Cup.
However, her motherly instincts reached a fever pitch on Tuesday when Ronaldo was benched during Portugal’s game against Switzerland.
Georgina Rodriguez ripped Team Portugal a new one in a social media post, but in the “classiest” way possible.
Cristiano Ronaldo Got Benched & Georgina Was PISSED!
Rodriguez posted several photos of herself all dolled up, looking super casual while in a stadium suite overlooking the field.
While this image is the status quo for her IG feed, it was the caption that told a very different story.
The caption was written in Spanish, but we translated it to English.
“Congratulations Portugal While the 11 players sang the hymn all the targets placed on you,” her caption began.
She even shared a video of the cameramen pointing their lens at Ronaldo on the bench rather than at the players on the field.
“All Targets On You,” Ronaldo
“What a shame not to have been able to enjoy the best player in the world during the 90 minutes,” her caption continued. “The fans have not stopped claiming you and shouting your name.”
Rodriguez Said It’s A “Shame” The Best Player Didn’t Play
Rodriguez concluded, “I hope that God and your dear friend Fernando continue hand in hand and make us vibrate one more night.”
In every photo she shared from Tuesday’s match, Rodriguez looked solemn and did not crack a smile.
The soccer star did actually get to play 17 minutes at the very end of the game.
Team Portugal absolutely spanked Switzerland in the knockout round winning 6-1.
Hey, great things can happen without the “best player” on the field.
Ronaldo shook things up with his club team last month!
He became a free agent after severing ties with Manchester United.
The shocking news was announced on Tuesday, November 22nd.
The English soccer club announced the news in a statement shared on their website.
Cristiano Ronaldo Leaves ManU
“Cristiano Ronaldo is to leave Manchester United by mutual agreement, with immediate effect,” the club’s official website read. “The club thanks him for his immense contribution across two spells at Old Trafford, scoring 145 goals in 346 appearances, and wishes him and his family well for the future. Everyone at Manchester United remains focused on continuing the team’s progress under Erik ten Hag and working together to deliver success on the pitch.”
The “breakup” comes a week after Ronaldo did an exclusive interview with Piers Morgan and said he felt “betrayed” by Man U.
He also said he has ZERO respect for the club’s head coach, Erik ten Hag.
Ten Hag suspended Ronaldo in October due to his refusing to appear as a substitute during Manchester United’s 2-0 win over Tottenham.
“I don’t have respect for him [Ten Hag] because he doesn’t show respect for me,” Ronaldo said in released excerpts from an interview with Piers Morgan. “If you don’t have respect for me, I’m never gonna have respect for you.”
According to the soccer star, he’s been looking for a way out of Man U since the summer, but it’s due in part to Ten Hag forcing to remove him from the team.
“I felt betrayed,” Ronaldo said. “I don’t care, people should listen to the truth. Yes, I felt betrayed. I feel that some people didn’t want me here, not only this year but last season too.”
Ronaldo Felt “Betrayed” By Manchester United’s Coach
According to reports, Ronaldo has played in 10 games for Manchester United this season, scoring only one goal for the squad. United has had three different managers, has won no trophies, and has been inconsistent throughout since he arrived back in England last season.
“Since [manager] Sir Alex [Ferguson] left, I saw no evolution in the club. Nothing had changed,” he said.
Ronaldo released his own statement on his departure.
“Following conversations with Manchester United we have mutually agreed to end our contract early,” the statement said. “I love Manchester United and I love the fans, that will never ever change. However, it feels like the right time for me to seek a new challenge. I wish the team every success for the remainder of the season and for the future.”
