CRISTIANO RONALDOâS sister launched an Almighty attack on Erik ten Hag – incredibly comparing his treatment of her brother with Jesus Christâs crucifixion.
The Dutchman dumped the Portuguese legend from his squad for Manchester Unitedâs draw at Chelsea, having made the 37-year-old train alone in the build-up.
Ronaldo was punished after refusing to come off the bench and storming down the tunnel before the end of Unitedâs 2-0 Old Trafford win against Tottenham on Wednesday.
But his singer sister Katia Aveiro unleashed a thinly-veiled biblical bashing of Ten Hag on social media in response.
Alongside a picture of her and Ronaldo, Aveiro, 45, wrote: âNo-one who was born to shine by the hands of God will be undone by someone who has never worn his shoes.
âHe is and will be history.
âThere is a verse in the bible that says: âThis man was handed over to you by Godâs deliberate plan and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men, put him to death by nailing him to the cross.ââ
Katiaâs older sister Elma was the first to stick the boot into Ten Hag this week, warning the former Ajax boss: âKarma existsâ and âGod never sleepsâ.
Ronaldo seemingly refused to apologise in a Thursday statement in which the ex-Real Madrid superstar said: âSometimes the heat of the moment gets the best of usâ.
And before Saturdayâs Stamford Bridge clash â where Casemiro dramatically earned a point in added time – his former United team-mates Roy Keane and Rio Ferdinand leaped to his defence.

Keane said: âItâs been brewing. Heâs a human being and has obviously had enough. Heâs got flaws and feels frustrated heâs not been properly getting opportunities.
âPlayers have done a lot worse things at Man Utd. It happens, itâs human nature.
âIâd be more worried if Ronaldo was sitting on the bench every week laughing his head off and not caring.
âThis game is full of bluffers and heâs certainly not one of them. He cares about the club and wants and needs to play. Heâs a world class player.â
Ferdinand added: âI wouldnât have been happy as a player.
âThe way of treating Ronaldo is different to everybody else. Communication. Thatâs probably the first time in his life where thatâs not upheld by the manager.â
England cricket legend Kevin Pietersen also lashed out in response to a picture of him at Old Trafford which United shared on Instagram.
He replied: âI donât want an association with a club thatâs managed by a clown who is completely disrespecting the greatest footballer of our time.
âCristiano is the BOSS. That clown, who no one will ever remember, needs a wake up!â
