Sporting CP Winger Bruno Tabata Has Hilarious Response To Cristiano Ronaldo's Mother Fuelling Talk Of Emotional Return

Sporting CP winger Bruno Tabata has sent a hilarious message to Cristiano Ronaldo's mother after she fuelled talk of an emotional return.

There's been speculation surrounding Ronaldo's future at Juventus after the Bianconeri were knocked out of the Champions League at the round of 16 stage for the second consecutive season.

But over the weekend, a video emerged of Ronaldo's mum Dolores Aveiro holding a Sporting shirt that had her son's name and classic No.7 on the back.

The Aveiro family are staunch Sporting fans and were watching the 1-0 win over Tondela in the Primeira Liga last night.

But the team's current No.7, Tabata, replied to the video in brilliant fashion.

"Calm down Dona Dolores, Ronaldo still needs to ask me the No. 7," he tweeted.

Ronaldo joined Sporting as a 12-year-old and after progressing through the youth ranks, he went on to make 31 first-team appearances for the club before Manchester United snapped him up for £12.24 million after seeing him dazzle in a 2003 friendly.

The 36-year-old still has a special affinity for Sporting and in 2019, the club's president, Frederico Varandas, talked up the possibility of renaming their stadium after him.

"It's a theory we will not shelve and obviously we'd be very proud to have his name associated with us," Varandas told Tuttosport, as per Football Italia.

"Cristiano is and always will be one of the greatest symbols in the history of our club. We're already keeping his values on the walls of the youth academy, focusing on passion, sacrifice, discipline, leadership and determination. Cristiano is certainly the best Portuguese player of all time and one of the best athletes in the history of the sport."
