Manchester United star, Cristiano Ronaldo, has banned his mother, Dolores, from attending big matches for her own good.
UK Sun reports that Dolores is likely to miss the 36-year-old's second United debut against Newcastle United at Old Trafford on September 11 due to the ban.
According to Ronaldo, his 66-year-old mother gets too nervous watching him in action from the stands.
The former Real Madrid and Juventus forward revealed that she has fainted twice inside the stadium, with one of her falls breaking her teeth.
"She's not allowed now to watch big games," Ronaldo journalist Piers Morgan.
"I say, 'Listen, I don't have a father any more. I don't want to lose my mum, too, so you're not going to watch quarter finals, semi-finals, or finals."
He had previously told Morgan in an earlier interview: "She gets so nervous, I don’t understand why. She is not allowed now to watch big games.
"I get friends to stay with her and she goes for walks around the house. She fainted two times in the stadium. She is nervous."
