Ghanaian witch doctor takes credit for Cristiano Ronaldo’s injury worries

Cristiano Ronaldo is in danger of missing at least Portugal’s 2014 World Cup opener against Germany due to injury, and Ghana’s “most influential witch doctor” — yes, they still exist — has claimed responsibility for his ailment.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam — whose name translates as “Devil of Wednesday” according to The Guardian — predicted in February that the reigning FIFA Ballon d’Or winner would miss the World Cup with a significant injury, and with the tournament just a week away, that is looking increasingly possible.

From The Guardian:

Ghana are set to meet Portugal in their final match of Group G in Brasilia on June 26 and Bonsam claims to have conjured a special powder from his gods, mixed with several leaves and concoctions which have been placed around an image and caricature of the former Manchester United player.

“I said it four months ago that I will work on Cristiano Ronaldo seriously and rule him out of the World up or at least prevent him from playing against Ghana and the best thing I can do is to keep him out through injury,” Bonsam says.

“This injury can never be cured by any medic, they can never see what is causing the injury because it is spiritual. Today, it is his knee, tomorrow it is his thigh, next day it is something else.”

You can cry to the heavens all you want, Ronaldo. But apparently, there is no cure to the curse Bonsam placed upon you.
