Cristiano Ronaldo‘ s sister reacted furiously to a joke made byLiverpooldefender Virgil van Dijk.Lionel Messiwon the Ballon d’Or on Monday night, beating out the pair. Katia Aveiro was incensed by a light-hearted comment from Van Dijk at the Ballon d’Or awards ceremony. Speaking after losing out to Messi, Van Dijk was asked about why Ronaldo was not there.
The Portuguese winger had prioritized going to the Gran Gala del Calico award ceremony to receive his ‘Best Player in Serie A’ and ‘Best Forward’ awards.
Van Dijk, on the other hand, was in attendance alongside Messi. The defender came second to Messi but one place ahead of Ronaldo.
Upon arriving at the ceremony, the Liverpool star was asked if Ronaldo’s absence meant he had one less rival to compete with.
Van Dijk’s reply – albeit sarcastic – was to say: “Was he a rival then?”

This didn’t go down well at all with Aveiro, who launched into a tirade on Instagram attacking the Dutchman.
Writing in a long-winded post, the Juventus forward’s sister took aim at Van Dijk’s trophy haul compared to Ronaldo’s.
“Now, dear Virgil, where you are going, Cristiano Ronaldo has gone and has come a thousand times, ”she wrote.
“ You see, my dear Virgil , that Cristiano Ronaldo was a tri-champion in the country where you have been playing for years and you still haven’t got your hand in the can. Cristiano Ronaldo was even the best player and best scorer in the country where you play Virgil. By the way, I was even younger than you.

“Then, dear Virgil, Cristiano Ronaldo went to other places and became the greatest player in the history of a clubezito. Real Madrid, tell you something Virgil ? Maybe so, because this club, with this Cristiano guy, even beat you in the Champions League final. Of these, Ronaldo already has five, Virgil.
“And that fellow Ronaldo and team-mates, with the corners on his chest, crushed your“ orange ”in a final. Was it hard, Virgil? We have pity.

“And, dear Virgil, In one of the least successful times of his career, Cristiano Ronaldo has won even more titles than you. Awesome, isn’t it?
“Now Virgil will win titles from those who really count and then we’ll talk. When you have a handful of them, the really important ones, you might be able to sit at the table with Cristiano.
“It’s for me Cristiano you are and you will always be the best player in the world !!!
“And who does not like to put it on the wheel of the plate! !! (as they say in our land, small for many) but where came the best ever. ”
