A Real Euro-star and world's most expensive footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, refused to wear a jersey with Israeli flag saying: "I do not exchange my shirt with ASSASSINS"

Cristiano Ronaldo

This was a phrase used by the Portuguese star Cristiano at a meeting after a friendly playoff between Israel and Portugal before the World Cup.

After the match, an Israeli player removing his shirt offered it to Ronaldo, who refused because he could not agree to wear a jersey on which there was the flag of the State of Israel.

In the locker room when reporters asked him why he had refused to exchange his jersey, he said "I do not exchange my shirt with murderers" (Google English translation).

A Real Euro-star: Cristiano Ronaldo, who became the world's most expensive footballer when he joined Real Madrid for £80 million from Manchester United, made his full international debut for Portugal in 2003.

This is not the first time the Portuguese star Ronaldo has shown his solidarity with Palestinians, last year he auctioned off his soccer boot in gold, to help Palestinian victims of Israeli bombing. (veteransnewsnow.com)
