The Dusts are yet to settle from all the fiesta, glam and glitz from the Prestigious highest footballing Honours world wide, the Ballon'dor.
Building up to this events, tensions were mounting, tempers could flare and most actors were concious of this fact.
However, Virgil Van Dijk in a way of claiming to crack a joke had responded to a reporter that Cristiano Ronaldo was not a contender for this years award, and ofcourse, Cristiano was absent owing to the fact he was in Italy to receive an award for Italian player of the year award.
A Dutch Journalist had teased Virgil Van Dijk in a question during an interview when asked if Ronaldo's failure to show up ment that he had one less rival to compete with for the acolades, the Liverpool solid centre back responded: "Was he a rival then?"
This apparently had irked Cristiano Ronaldo's sister and did not cut across to her as a funny joke.
On her instagram handle, she latched back at Virgil Van Dijk to express her displeasure in his remarks about her brother CR7.
Her response was a mixture of anger with subtle advice for the Liverpool Defender and current champions league holder.
Apparently, Van Dijk came Second behind Messi, but will mot be forgetting the piece of advice he got from Ronaldo's sister in a hurry.
Kaita Aveiro (Ronaldo's Sister) took blasted him asking him to win titles before he can comr back for talks with Ronaldo. As if to say to him Ronaldo is not his mate nor in his category in anyway, shape or form.
'My Dear Virgil, win titles then we'll talk'
"Now, dear Virgil, where you are going, Cristiano Ronaldo has gone and has come back a thousand times,"
"You see, my dear Virgil, that Cristiano Ronaldo was a tri-champion in the country where you have been playing for years and you still haven't got your hand in the can.
"Cristiano Ronaldo was even the best player and best scorer in the country where you play Virgil. By the way, I was even Younger than you.
"Then, dear Virgil, Cristiano Ronaldo went to other places and became the greatest player in the history of club football.
"Real Madrid, does that tell you something, Virgil? Maybe so, because this club, with this Cristiano guy, even beat you in the Champions League final. Of these Ballon'dor, Ronaldo already has five, Virgil.
"And that fellow Ronaldo, and team-mates, crushed your 'Orange' in a finak. Was it hard, Virgil? We have pity. And, dear Virgil, im one of the least successful times of his career, Cristiano Ronaldo has won even more titles than you. Awesome, isn't it?
"Now Virgil, you go and win titles that really count and then we will talk. When you have a handful of them, the really imlortant ones, you might be able to sit at the table with cristiano. Or as they say in our land, it grows and appears! For me, Cristiano you are and you will always be the best player in the world".
Virgil Van Dijk didnt have no justification or any response, he insisted that he had nothing but respect for Ronaldo and that his joke was taken out of context.
