There is a shortage of petrol in the UK. Star kicker Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the drivers suffering without fuel.
Britain is constantly plagued by a shortage of petrol. A driver and a bodyguard for football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo (36) were among those who waited for hours in front of the gas pump in anticipation of a tank of fuel. Its Bentley, which is about 250,000 euros more expensive, and another luxury car remain “fuel-poor” for the time being, as observed by the British tabloid “The Sun”.
Ronaldo’s staff waited almost seven hours – in vain
According to the report, staff of the Manchester United star remained in the rain for at least six hours and 40 minutes in the city of Wilmslow (County Cheshire) on Wednesday (29 September). In the end, they were disappointed by the notion that no more gasoline trucks would provide the new deliveries. Ronaldo hired him to refuel his Range Rover as well as his Bentley.
The 36-year-old, who had rented a seven-bedroom villa nearby, was not there himself. One observer told the “Sun”: “Despite all his money, Ronaldo is in the same boat as us… (he) will probably be stuck at home like everyone else if this continues.”
Shell limited purchase of fuel up to £30 per customer
Even if the Portuguese-born workers had had good luck at the gas pump, the tanks of Ronaldo’s luxury cars would not have been full. Because petrol station giant Shell recently introduced a limit on the purchase of fuel, which is 30 pounds (equivalent to about 35 euros). Therefore, the purchase of hamsters by motorists should be stopped.
Cristiano Ronaldo is playing again for his old club Manchester United in England this summer. He was previously under contract with Italian club Juventus Turin.
