Jan, 28th 2021 – Cristiano Ronaldo is ‘under investigation’ after flouting coronavirus rules to take his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez on a trip to a luxury ski resort for her 27th birthday.
Ronaldo, who was rested for Juve’s 4-0 Coppa Italia win against SPAL on Wednesday night, took his girlfriend out , 93 miles from Turin, for a two-day trip.
The fine Ronaldo faces is £354, which is as much as Ronaldo makes in seven minutes as per his £26m-a-year Juventus contract.
The report claims that Ronaldo and Rodriguez spent two days in the snow in the Val Veny area, in the same resort that Rodriguez spent her birthday last year, but without Ronaldo on that occasion.
It adds that the pair have not been fined, but a video showing them in the resort on social media was taken down immediately.
Italian Covid rules state that: ‘Travel across regions in Italy is banned until 15 February unless for reasons of work, health or absolute necessity.’
Ronaldo, who was not in Juve’s 23-man squad for their game on Wednesday, had been given a break by manager Andrea Pirlo ahead of their game at Sampdoria on Saturday in Serie A.
The Portuguese star has scored 20 goals in all competitions this season but has netted just twice in his last five matches.
