Explain this to me (Ronaldo´s cars)

If you can.
How can anyone with a conscience spend this money on a car, plus all the other cars he has.
Afraid my estimation of this guy has dropped as low as it can go.

It's all relative Jan, firstly it's not a large amount of money to him, secondly it's what rich folk do to out do other rich folk, thirdly he does give to charity to ease any pangs of conscience he has.

He was also convicted for tax fraud and given a trifling fine of €19m, so perhaps he used some of his hidden cash to purchase it.

Put it another way, no matter how much money you had, could you do that, with a clear conscience with all the needy people in this world, I'm sure I couldn´t.

I suspect anyone committing tax fraud doesn't really have much of a conscience to start with.

Pit the needy against the greedy and the greedy will always win unfortunately. Just look at the wealth divide in Britain.

It’s a terrific investment, I doubt it will never see light of day from its garage. In 5 years time it’ll fetch £15m or more if he wanted to sell. I’d also reckon his tax fraud was bad advice from his financial advisers, it’s not as if a footballer is likely to understand too much about how to run finances.

Today, high value motors are better than money in the bank. My former boss has a large fleet of cars, most of them never get out of the garage. He recently sold one that cost him £17,500 a number of years ago for £120,000. Try getting that sort of return from other investments.

Wonder if he sacked his “advisers” ????
