more than just crispy skin


CRISTIANO RONALDO has rescued the career of an injury-stricken teenager by paying his medical bills.

The Manchester United star offered his help after hearing that Joao Santos — an 18-year-old goalkeeper with Amora in Portugal — had suffered cruciate ligament damage in his left knee.

Santos originally intended to finance the operation himself by auctioning a pair of boots given to him by Ronaldo when he was at Sporting Lisbon.

The United winger was so touched when he learned of the youngster’s plight he told him to stop the auction and offered to pay his hospital costs.

So far Ronaldo has paid a £4,000 bill for the operation by leading surgeon Antonio Martins at the Sant Ana Hospital in Cascais.

He is also paying out £200 a week for Santos’ rehabilitation sessions with the Portuguese national team physiotherapist Antonio Gaspar.

A pal of Santos said: “Joao knew Cristiano when he was a very junior player at Sporting and was given the first pair of boots that Ronaldo wore on his debut.

“Joao was going to sell the boots to raise the money but Cristiano wouldn’t let him.

“Ronaldo’s action makes the nation feel very proud of him.”

Amora, second in the Setubal regional league, have serious cash problems and have no masseur or doctor.

Van Nistelrooy's Season Not Over Yet After All?
Real Madrid striker Ruud van Nistelrooy might return to match action sooner than expected...

Real Madrid's prolific hitman Ruud van Nistelrooy sustained a complicated knee injury back in November, and many expected his season to be over due to the problem.

The reigning title holders even opted to sign Ajax striker Klaas Jan Huntelaar as his replacement.

However, the former Oranje international wants to do his utmost to return to match action before the end of the season and is confident that he will succeed.

"It's possible for me to return to match action in April. Nevertheless, it's very important for me to remain patient," said Van Nistelrooy to Sport1.

"The doctors already told me that I would feel very good very quick. I can bend my knee like nothing ever happened and you can't see that there's something wrong."

"Yet I still have to use crutches for at least eight weeks. Additionally, I'm using a device that gives my knee extra support for eight hours per day."

"I can hardly wait till it's January the eighth. That's the date I can walk normally again without any help."

YAY RUUD. ohmygod, imagine if he comes back this season. SWOON.

So did anyone see the Real Madrid/Barcelona match?

It is often asked, to the losers of a big game, whether they lost the game or if they failed to win.  In my opinion, Real Madrid simply lost. Barcelona won, they did what they should have done given their excellent personnel. It was a great game, everyone showed up to play and to win. A quality match. On to a crap load of pics.

Owen going cheaply
Michael no longer worth top money, warns McGarry

The days of Michael Owen commanding a huge salary are long gone.

That was the credit-crunching verdict of the Sunday Supplement as they discussed the Newcastle forward's future.

Interim Toon boss Joe Kinnear admitted this week that he expects Owen, 29 today, to leave St James' Park when his current deal expires at the end of the season.

Owen has been linked with the likes of Manchester City, Everton and Tottenham already but the biggest issue could be dough and not destination.

The Shit's Ian McGarry knows Owen well and warned him that even if he manages to secure a return to Liverpool or a move to big-spending Chelsea, the days of commanding a mega-bucks salary are as far behind him as his England days.

"He's currently on £108,000 a week at Newcastle United," he told the Sunday Supplement.

1. You work for The Sun, Ian McFucktard. No way do you know Michael well. Michael wouldn't even look at you.
2. I don't care if he's going for cheap, that's a good thing. I also think if he was going back to Liverpool he wouldn't mind a pay cut.
3. 12 goals in his last 18 starts. That's impressive. All while being injured half the time and in a shit team. That's more than certain other strikers out there who I won't mention but he's Irish and he cost us a lot of money. ETA: Although I do love him I just find it frustrating that this idiot refuses to acknowledge this stat.
4. In the year's he's gotten slower he's accepted it and learned to adapt his game to whoever is around him which makes him more effective.
5. Form is temporary but class is permanent (I feel like I've been using that slogan forever regarding him, haha) and articles like these just motivate the shit out of him to score. You journalists always make the mistake of bemoaning his career then he goes out on a scoring run just to fuck you you up.

He's always found a way to score, even with a million things against him (injuries, club politics, inferior players). I can't believe people forget that so easily.

Also if Rafa buys Emile Ivanhoe Heskey back I might punch a bitch.
