A round-up of of this afternoon’s other football news

Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo gets in more car trouble
Six months after having his Ferrari 599 GTB written off after a collision with a concrete wall, Ronaldo is again in trouble for a car-related incident. The Real Madrid star allegedly used his £80 million-valued feet to kick the car window of 17-year-old student Sara Pardal, sending shards of glass flying into her face. The FIFA World Player of the Year was heading to an Elton John concert with his mum and sisters when he spotted the girl videoing him. Ronaldo claims she was with a photographer who had been stationed outside his house for days and that he only reacted because his mother was distressed. He has expressed regret but also accused Pardal of exaggerating her injuries.

Sheffield United try to build bridges with West Ham
The Blades completed the signing of former West Ham winger Kyel Reid today and have used the move as proof that there are no hard feelings between them and the club they tried to bankrupt. A website statement claimed: “The move is the first between the Blades and West Ham since the Tevez affair and the way in which it has been conducted has typified the professional and friendly spirit that exists between the two.” The Spoiler had assumed the Blades didn’t need to do much negotiating with West Ham as Reid was out of contract but we’re willing to ignore that and just rejoice in the fact “the Tevez affair” is over.

BBC to air two Newcastle games
Newcastle may be void of Premier League football, a manager and any real direction at the moment but the BBC have tried to cheer their fans up by airing two of their opening five away games for free (well, the price of their licence fee). The Beeb are airing ten Championship matches this season and the first two they have chosen are the Magpies’ opening day trip to West Brom and the potential Roy Keane/Alan Shearer face-off at Ipswich on September 26.

    The right thing now is to apologize in public to the girl and the family, and learn to control it better, instead of entering his Ferrari and go as if nothing had happened.
    A person that goes home , and isn’t affected with what happen, can not be considered a good person, and be entitled to bonuses for being good, but as a person, does not have any quality. It’s another boy , rich and famous , that can do want goes in the head

    YOU are an idiot he should not have to apologise to that stupid little girl.
    she was stalking him and violating his right to privaacy ,
    just because the media/paps stalk celebritys does NOT make it okay.
    the dumb girl is the one who should apologize to him
    any person would react the way he did.
    and he was right to kick that skanks car in.

    I totally agree with you Kate, it’s so funny to me how everyone believes eveything they read as if its the God to honest truth. Of courase the newspapers and media are going to blow this whole incident out of proportion, It’s Cristiano Ronaldo, bashing him sells!!! No one mentions how the paparazzi and the girl tried to sell him the video footage and he refused. This is purely a money making scam.
