A Ghanaian witch doctor, Nana Kwaku Bonsam, has claimed to be the force behind Cristiano Ronaldo’s injury struggles.
Bonsam, whose name translates to “Devil of Wednesday”, had said as far back as February that he was going to make the Portugal star miss the World Cup.
Ghana & Portugal are in the same group in the World Cup, and Bonsam’s fear of Ronaldo’s talent may be his reason for trying to keep the Real Madrid ace out of the mundial.
“I know what Cristiano Ronaldo’s injury is about, I’m working on him,” Bonsam, who serves at the Kofioo Kofi shrine, said in an interview with the Kumasi-based Angel FM.
“I am very serious about it. Last week, I went around looking for four dogs and I got them to be used in manufacturing a special spirit called Kahwiri Kapam.
“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 though injury.
“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.
