Bavarian brogues sent to Cristiano Ronaldo after Real Madrid striker's boots are stolen in Munich
Wednesday 18 April 2012
A Bavarian radio presenter has sent a pair of traditional Bavarian brogues to Cristiano Ronaldo after the Real Madrid forward allegedly had three pairs of football boots stolen before his side's Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich.
Munich police are reportedly investigating after Ronaldo, Mesut Ozil and Karim Benzema allegedly had belongings stolen from their changing room before the semi-final first leg at the Allianz Arena last night.
Bayern 1 presenter Stephan Lehmann, who is also the Bayern Munich stadium announcer, appealed today to his listeners for a pair of brogues to send to Ronaldo and some were donated by a shoe maker, the radio station said on its website.
"We need Bavarian brogues, size 43, for the most expensive footballer in the world," Lehmann said, www.br.de reported.
The package also included a personal note to Ronaldo, telling him he would look "really snazzy" in the new shoes.
It read: "Dear Cristiano Ronaldo.
"Hospitable people live here in Bavaria. We may steal maypoles, but not shoes. We therefore wanted to replace what you lost. Here are a pair of genuine Bavarian brogues for you. With them you won't be able to score any goals, but you will look really snazzy.
"Kind regards, Stephan Lehmann and the Bayern 1 team."
Madrid lost the game last night 2-1. The second leg will take place in the Spanish capital next week.
