I put a spell on you and now you're...injured?  
Photobucket


An unusual headline in Spain’s El Mundo newspaper caught my eye this morning: “Real Madrid threatened by wizard.”

According to the respected conservative daily, the La Liga club has received a letter from the magician, whom it did not identify by name, warning that he has been contracted to cast a spell that would inflict injury on their Portuguese winger Cristiano Ronaldo.


“I can’t promise that it will be a serious injury but he’ll certainly be out of action more than playing,” El Mundo quoted the wizard as saying.

He told the paper he was unable to reveal the identity of his client “because I am a mixture of priest and doctor and I have to respect the confidentiality of my followers.”

El Mundo said it was the third time the wizard had threatened Real after targeting players including David Beckham and Ronaldo (the portly Brazilian version) in 2003 and Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Fabio Cannavaro and Raul in 2006.

The wizard has apparently already begun the process of casting his spell over Cristiano Ronaldo using photos of the world record signing spread out around his “laboratory”.

“It’s a step-by-step process and depends on various factors so the result you are looking for is achieved sooner or later,” El Mundo quoted the wizard as saying.

He pointed out that Ronaldo’s run of a goal-a-game had ended against Tenerife at the weekend and he had been angry at being substituted by coach Manuel Pellegrini in the second half.

Real are not taking the threat seriously and have dismissed it as “the kind of craziness we deal with on a daily basis”, according to El Mundo.

We’ll be keeping a close eye on Ronaldo in the next few weeks but in the meantime can anyone think of anything similar happening in other leagues?

There are plenty of superstitious soccer players out there but someone being targeted by a wizard really is bizarre.

English translation not by me. Original Spanish Source here.

brb going to get my wand. Voldemort has gone too far this time.

lol some people are just crazy ... but at least the question to Higuain in his interview (Q: We hear that Perez has got a letter from a warlock? A: I don't believe in witches, so I'm not worried) makes a bit more sense now!

Oh and Mr Wizard? Be careful or else Ronnie's BFF Kaka might just send Jesus after you ;)

LOL Oh my, this reminds me of a story about the other Ronaldo, the Brazilian. Apparently the Brazilians later accused some magician that he jinxed Ronaldo before the 1998 WC final, so that France wins. *haha*

Anyway...just look at my name, then you know what's going on. (oh and my dislike for CRonaldo is well known, I don't mean to attack any of his fans though, so don't worry gg)

So, this "wizard" has been contracted by someone who shall not be named. And this piece of information just happens to be deliciously spread to the media.

Oh gee, I wonder who this person could be.

So is he on Twitter? LOL

I wonder if as much as RM are saying they're not taking this seriously, they now have CR under surveillance.
