Recall that after Manchester United’s defeat to Everton at Goodison Park last season,
Ronaldo slapped the hand of Jacob Harding as he stormed down the tunnel, damaging the boy’s phone.
He apologised afterwards and was interviewed by police in relation to alleged assault and criminal damage before receiving a caution.
However, the boy’s mum, Sarah Kelly has said that she declined the opportunity to meet Ronaldo after the incident, but she ended up receiving a call that lasted 10-minute which he pleaded for sympathy.
Her words, “He asked me if I would like to come down and meet his family,’ He said, “I’m not a bad dad”. I said to him, “I never said you were a bad dad.”
“He said, “I had a terrible upbringing, I lost my dad”. I said to him, “Everybody has a sob story Ronaldo, I lost my dad young, I’ve had cancer.”
“He kept calling me Jack and didn’t even know my name and I said, “My name is Sarah” and he said, “Oh, Sarah, I’m sorry.”
“He never referred to Jacob by his name either, it was always “the boy”. “I know the boy’s got problems”, he said. I told him, “He hasn’t got a problem, he has a disability, you’re the one with the problem.”
