Cristiano Ronaldo banned from frequent Morocco visits by Floretino Perez

Published 28 Comments

Cristiano Ronaldo has been banned from frequently visiting close friend Badr Hari in Morocco, by none other than Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.

Sound strange? You bet. It’s what the Daily Mirror are relaying today, however, citing Spanish newspaper Sport.

Perez intervenes

Sport say Perez has run out of patience with his star man, even going as far to use his connection with the king of Morocco, Mohammed VI, so that he can be made aware of when Ronaldo is in the African nation.

It’s claimed that the former Manchester United star has been taking regular trips to see Hari, leaving after training every morning and then heading back to Madrid in the evenings. Yes, he’s clocking up some serious air miles.

Strange claim

We’ll be the first to say that we’re smelling a whiff of abnormality here, particularly as the supposed reason for Perez’s decision to ban Ronaldo focuses on the idea that he’s annoyed with the Portuguese star’s lack of form.

He may not have retained the Ballon d’Or crown, but CR7 still has 16 goals and seven assists in 20 La Liga games this season.


Not exactly phenomenal by his own ridiculously high standards, but a far stretch from figures suggestive of the need for Real’s president to get involved with his private life.

Interesting circumstances

In any case, Ronaldo’s relationship with the aforementioned Hari will be watched with intrigue by the masses.

If it’s true that Perez is now intervening then something must be awry. Exactly what that is is anyone’s guess at the moment.
