Cristiano Ronaldo has respectfully written to the Miami police force (Crockett & Tubbs?) to politely request that the two criminal charges brought against the pitch invader who broke onto the field to share an intense, elongated hug with the Real Madrid star when the Spanish side played Chelsea during a pre-season tournament in America.

The pitch invader, 20-year-old Albanian student Ronald Gjoka, has been charged with trespassing and disorderly conduct after being arrested by police at the Sun Life Stadium, though his attorney is concerned that the charges may lead to “problems with immigrations and his college” if they’re not dropped.

After learning of Gjoka’s situation, Ronaldo wrote the following letter to the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office:

“I understand your position and the importance of enforcing rules and law. However, I respectfully request that you and your office reconsider this decision and dismiss the two criminal charges this young man faces.”

Good lad. Sterling behaviour from the boy Ronaldo.

    On ya Ron. Pitch invasions are steadily becoming a battleground between fans & officials, for no reason. Most pitch invasions are only an expression of joy.
    “Some people are on the pitch, they think it’s all over! Well they’ve been tazered and trampled by horses, so IT IS NOW!”

    I wonder when we’ll get our game back.

    Nice gesture by Ronaldo but seriously, with the fan being an immigrant in the US, he probably should have known better than to draw such attention to himself.

    It’s not these kinds of people the officials are scared of. It’s the lunatic that gut-stabs a player one day. So it’s simply black and white. None can be allowed.

    Time to erect those brazilian style chain link fences at all soccer grounds
