This comes after Ronaldo has admitted that his mum is banned from attending his big matches.
Ronaldo told Piers Morgan:
"She's not allowed now to watch big games. I say, 'Listen, I don't have a father any more. I don't want to lose my mum, too, so you're not going to watch quarter-finals, semi-finals, or finals'.
"She gets so nervous, I don’t understand why. She is not allowed now to watch big games. I get friends to stay with her and she goes for walks around the house."
