Cristiano Ronaldo cried after winning Euro 2016 and broke booze ban by drinking champagne to hydrate

CRISTIANO RONALDO has revealed he cried so much after winning the Euros that he had to break his booze ban and neck champagne because he was so dehydrated.

The Juventus superstar, 34, has won it all in his incredible career.

Ronaldo revealed he got drunk to Diletta Leotta

But one trophy stands head and shoulders above all the others: the European Championship.

Ronaldo was forced off after just 25 minutes of the 1-0 win over France in July 2016.

The greatest player Portugal has ever produced broke down in tears when he realised he would have to go off after a clash with Dimitri Payet.

But Eder’s extra-time goal meant those tears of pain were replaced with tears of joy.

And there were so many that Ronaldo needed a drink to get some fluids back in his system.

The only thing is that he drank so quickly the booze went straight to his head.

He told Diletta Leotta: “The title of European Champion with Portugal is the most important prize I have ever won.

“It was an incredible, unforgettable evening.

“I cried, I laughed, I suffered, I shouted, I got drunk.

“During that game, I cried so much that I was dehydrated.

“At the end of the game, during the celebrations, I drank a glass of champagne and immediately it went to my head.

“I never drink but that day was so special. The most important trophy ever.”

Ronaldo also addressed his future – and says he has no desire to go into management at the moment.

What’s more, he said it is only something he will consider if he gets “bored”.

He added: “Right now, I don’t care to become a coach.

The Portugal superstar said winning the Euros was the biggest triumph of his career

“Maybe one day I will be bored and I will feel like it, never say never.

“If I became a coach, I would be a motivator. The coach must transmit his passions and his talents to the team.

“I like to have fun, dribble, shoot, score goals. I would pass this onto the team as a motivator.”
