He’s ready to return for Real Madrid after an injury lay-off, but Cristiano Ronaldo appeared to take his eye off the ball this week while watching his team-mates in action – and little wonder.
The Portuguese winger was joined by stunning girlfriend Irina Shayk as the Spanish giants took on Valladolid at the Bernabeu stadium.
Seated in an exclusive members' area high in the stands, the pair looked every inch the loving couple as they took in the game – but appeared to spend more time looking at one another than the veritable goal fest taking place.
Indeed, as Madrid plundered four goals in a one sided match on Saturday evening, moisturized midfielder Ronaldo wrapped an arm around Russian model Irina’s shoulders and pulled her close.
The 28-year-old appeared to be smitten as she nestled her head into his chest – and with good reason.
Sultry Sports Illustrated cover girl Irina, 27, recently topped Maxim Russia’s Hot 100 Women list, an accolade that follows her first place in the Hottest Russian Women poll conducted by Complex magazine.
‘Thank you Maxim Russia for this nice surprise,’ she wrote after learning of her recent accolade. ‘Huge thanks to those who voted for me.’
Ronaldo will soon be forced to leave Irina in the stands when he returns to action with Real Madrid after confirming he has recovered from a thigh strain picked up during a match against Almeria on November 23.
‘I no longer have an injury,’ he said at an awards ceremony held in the Spanish capital. ‘We preferred not to push things against Valladolid but I will be there for the next game for sure.’ He added: ‘I am on good form. It’s possible that it is the best start to the season of my career but the past few years have also been very good.’
Real Madrid’s next game will be away against Olimpic de Xativa on December 7.
