Ronaldo’s former teammate has backed him on Twitter after negative criticism

Posted by

Former Real Madrid maestro, Mesut Ozil, has come to Cristiano Ronaldo’s aid after the Portuguese captain received a lot of criticism over his negative actions this past month.

He had already received plenty of criticism after his destructive interview with Piers Morgan, just one week before the World Cup kicked off. Even the national team manager, Fernando Santos, has had a pop at him.

But now one of Ronaldo’s former teammates, Ozil, has leapt to defend the free agent on Twitter.

Ozil clearly thinks all the ‘negative comments’ aimed at Ronaldo are unfair, what do you think?
