Cristiano Ronaldo will be finished in football within four months, claims voodoo attacker

The witch who claims he was hired to put a spell on Cristiano Ronaldo reckons the Portugal star will have to quit football within four months.

The voodoo attacker, who calls himself Pepe, insists it is no coincidence that the Real Madrid forward suffered an ankle injury days after the so-called curse came to light.

And now he says there will be a further blow and the Ronaldo will 'have to stop for two or three months, and then will come the final injury.

In four months maximum, he will never be able to play football,' Pepe told Portuguese newspaper Correio de Manha.

Furthermore, he claims a witch hired to counteract his powers will only make things worse because: 'My magic is black and this will accelerate the process.
It is an explosive combination and it will be Ronaldo who will suffer the consequences.'

Pepe's description of the person who hired him becomes more defined each time he speaks to the media, seemingly thriving off the speculation that has already spread across websites.

He elaborates that the unnamed woman comes from 'a powerful family, had relations with Ronaldo and opened doors of high society, which he later rejected'.

Also, she 'does not speak Spanish, nor Portuguese, and is under 30'.

Pepe said it was 'revenge' and that nothing can stop the curse

'She called me three times,' he said.

'The last time it was to say she is satisfied with my work'.

source of doom!

whoever she is, she sure doesn't like him and holds a grudge

Michael Owen says he will celebrate as normal if he scores at Anfield
• Striker says he should not be accused of disloyalty
• Manchester United's Michael Owen expecting hostile Anfield reception

Michael Owen believes he did not let his first club down by joining fierce rivals Manchester United

Michael Owen has accepted that he will get a hostile reception when he returns to Liverpool as a Manchester United player this weekend but insisted that he does not believe he let down his first club by joining their fiercest rivals.

Owen is acutely aware that many supporters at Anfield cannot forgive him for switching allegiances to United, but the striker considers it unfair for him to be accused of disloyalty. To illustrate the point, he said he planned to celebrate as normal if he scored in Sunday's game.

"I'm human," said Owen. "I'd prefer people to sit down and recognise what you did for them and for the team in years gone past but I'm pretty realistic as well. Now that I'm playing for their local rivals – I'm not holding my breath, put it that way.

"People talk about loyalty in football, and for a football supporter it's easy to preach about that. As a father and a brother and a son there's no one more loyal than me. But when you're a player, you're not a fan. I've got to earn a living, provide for my family.

I supported Everton as a kid. I never supported Real Madrid, but I played for them. It's a job opportunity, just like anyone else's work.

"The longer you're at a team, if the fans make you feel welcome and the players take to you, then you build an affinity. So now obviously I look for Real Madrid results and Newcastle results, but it doesn't make me any less loyal to Manchester United." (doesnt look for L'Pool results then?)

Owen is still hopeful that his move to Old Trafford will lead to him going to the World Cup next summer and he pointed to his past international record as justification to be included in Fabio Capello's squad.

"I'm hopeful but the last thing I want is to be campaigning," he said. "Everyone can see how many games I've played, how many goals I've scored, how many World Cups I've been in, my record against strong opponents in big games.

"Everyone can see everything with their own eyes. There are no secrets with me – I've played 89 games, I've scored 40 goals. Everyone knows if I play I'm likely to score every other game. Playing in a World Cup wouldn't bother me. In fact, I'd raise my game, as has happened before in big games. I like big games. For some reason I find an extra certain percentage. Everyone knows these things."

Sir Alex Ferguson, who is likely to be charged with improper conduct by the Football Association tomorrow for his comments about the referee Alan Wiley, may leave Ryan Giggs, Wayne Rooney, Patrice Evra, Nemanja Vidic and Darren Fletcher behind when the team fly to Russia for Wednesday's Champions League tie against CSKA Moscow to ensure they are fit for Sunday.

Beach ball referee Jones drops into Championship

Mike Jones, the referee who incorrectly awarded Darren Bent's goal for Sunderland against Liverpool on Saturday, will not officiate in the Premier League this weekend.

Collapse )

For anyone interested, here's the laws that I pulled up:

If a spectator or other outside agent enters the field when the ball is going into goal and tries to prevent a score before the ball passes wholly over the goal line, a goal shall be allowed if the ball goes into goal, unless the spectator or outside agent has made contact with the ball or has interfered with play. If that occurs, the referee shall stop the game and restart it by dropping the ball at the place where the contact or other interference took place. A goal may not be allowed based on where the ball might have gone in the absence of such contact or interference.
(Advice to Referees on the Laws of the Game, Revised July 2008)

1. Outside Agent
If an outside agent enters the field of play:
-the referee shall stop play (although not immediately if the outside agent does not interfere with play)
-the referee shall have him removed from the field of play and its immediate surroundings
-if the referee stops the match he shall restart play with a dropped ball in the position where the ball was at the time when the match was stopped
