Cristiano Ronaldo is receiving harsh criticism in Italy.

He said he was going to Portugal for his mother, but now he only seems to be taking pictures in the pool », values.

When they return, it will be more difficult to get back in shape, because they will have to be quarantined for 14 days », recalled the former bianconero president.
