Real Madrid iconic forward Cristiano Ronaldo has donated €1.5 million to Palestinian children in Gaza, the Arabic version of the club’s Classico network reports.

The star forward gave his Golden Boot which he earned in 2011 to the Real Madrid foundation. The Spanish giants in their turn sold it at auction and will now donate the funds to schools in Gaza. Cristiano Ronaldo or the Real Madrid Foundation have not commented on the news so far.

According to various reports, the Real Madrid Foundation has helped to build 167 schools in 66 countries.

It’s not the first time Ronaldo has given to charity. Last year he sold most of his sports shoes at a Real Madrid Foundation auction which was also dedicated to raising funds for schools in Gaza.

Ronaldo became the most expensive footballer in history after moving from Manchester United to Real Madrid in a transfer worth €93.9 million. In addition, his contract with Real Madrid, in which he is paid €12 million per year, makes him one of the highest-paid footballers in the world.

    It’s wonderful to see European hedonists funding terrorism of the poor. Which is why hell exists. For socialist nazis like this fecal maggot.

      Terrorism of the poor? HA! You parents should have used a condom to avoid you being born. You’re a waste of oxygen. You’re calling innocent children “terrorism of the poor”. Seriously I feel sorry for you and I pray god will guide you and lighten up your dark worthless heart.

      The Zionists make Hitler look like Tinkerbell. Israel is the only terrorist. You don’t have to be a Muslim to dislike what Israel is doing. You just have to be human….

    This story is a lie. It’s jsut the opposite, Ronaldo finances Israel, he’s anti-muslim. And Madrid is a racist club, they are radical catolics and also against muslims. Don’t let the media fool you.
