Cris In Dubai, Zizou Models

28 Dec

375-866-la-foto-1,9My enforced bed rest continues and now I’m joined by Max the Cat who had an emergency vet visit this morning (he’s okay, thankfully). So we’re both pouting and sleeping a lot. So just a few things tonight…

Cris was in Dubai to receive the Globe Soccer Best Player of the Year award.

Cristiano Ronaldo, winner of the Globe Soccer Best Player of the Year award

“I like playing alongside great players, like my Madrid team mates”, the forward said at the gala held in Dubai, where he collected the award

Cristiano Ronaldo received the Globe Soccer prize for the Best Player of the Year at the gala held in Dubai. This award crowned a year for the Real Madrid forward in which he has scored 69 goals for the Whites and his national side. But his ambition has no limits and he said: “I am always trying to improve, to set myself new challenges. I will try to add to my number of goals. If you don’t try to do something, you will not manage it. Scoring goals is my passion”. The Portuguese player also feels very comfortable at Madrid and praised his team: “I like playing alongside great players, like my Madrid team mates”.

This prize, which is jointly awarded by the European Club Association and the European Football Agents’ Association, following a vote by fans from all over the world, is a new honour for the Madrid forward. After collecting the award, he said: “I have worked very hard, intensively. I have always applied myself one hundred per-cent. I have really pushed myself”.

Am I the only one who fangirled a little bit seeing Pierluigi Collina? Probably. (Additional photos via GF Sports)

Cris also appeared on the cover of A  Bola and lumipallo-cr7 translated the interview. Among other things, he said he’d be happy to work with Mou again and said there was no confrontation between them. I’ve seen several truncated translations of these quotes today on Twitter – typical shit stirring – it’s pretty ridiculous (but par for the course).
Cris took along his Mini-Me & Irina for the trip. They visited the aquarium and went out into the desert. Gotta say, I’m enjoying all this new access to Cris Jr. He’s a cutie. I’m a bit perplexed by Irina’s aquarium outfit (the leggings, especially) and Cris’s odd jeans with what look like sweatshirt material cuffs (in the desert shot). Rich folks sure do dress strangely sometimes.

BccHYV3CUAAhV2MAs I’m a fan of dark, brooding Zizou, I always find it a little disconcerting when he’s smiling broadly.

I don’t think all the photos from inside the mag have shown up so I’ll keep my eyes peeled for more. (I found a couple of these shots via zizoufan, so thank you!) Here’s a “making of” video. Damn, that man is lush.

Sweet dreams!

    I thought Irina had gone for a nice, toned-down, just strolling around an aquarium like a regular person outfit but then I scrolled down and saw the shoes and leggings.

    That aquarium picture reminds me, did anyone else see Cristiano’s ex Nereida post on twitter? She’s in Dubai as well and her family happened to visit the aquarium the same day Cristiano’s did, so she posted a side by side comparison of Cris’s family pic and her family pic…

      Ooooh, awkward. She and Cris didn’t end things on the best note.

      That is 12 kinds of tacky. On her part.

    I know this comment is a little bit too late, but I was stalking the Cris Jr. tag and I just wanted to clarify that that wasn’t at an aquarium, it’s an aquarium INSIDE Dubai Mall. And Dubai Mall is not just your everyday shopping mall, it’s a bit more on the high-end side and it has many fine dining places and it’s also right next to Burj Khalifa. So that’s probably why she was wearing heels. 🙂
