Ghana's most influential witch doctor claims Cristiano Ronaldo will miss this summer's World Cup and will never be healed, because of him.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam - whose name translates as 'Devil of Wednesday' - put a curse on the Portuguese superstar in February, when he predicted Ronaldo would miss the entire tournament.

Portugal are due to face the witch doctor's native Ghana in the final group game of Group G, and the Mediterranean nation look set to face not only their African opponents, but also must conquer sorcery if they are to progress.

With reports surfacing which indicate the Real Madrid man has tendinosis in his left knee, as well as a muscle problem in his left thigh, Bonsam has stepped forward to claim sole responsibility.

He said: "I know what Cristiano Ronaldo’s injury is about, I’m working on him. I am very serious about it.

"Last week, I went around looking for four dogs and I got them to be used in manufacturing a special spirit called Kahwiri Kapam.

"I said it four months ago that I will work on Cristiano Ronaldo seriously and rule him out of the World up or at least prevent him from playing against Ghana and the best thing I can do is to keep him out though injury.

"This injury can never be cured by any medic, they can never see what is causing the injury because it is spiritual. Today, it is his knee, tomorrow it is his thigh, next day it is something else."

Ronaldo missed Portugal's warm-up game with Greece, and is a doubt for the remaining two against Mexico and Republic of Ireland respectively.

According to Bonsam, he may as well exchange his ticket to Brazil.
