CRISTIANO Ronaldo and his Real Madrid teammates can certainly claim to have been robbed following their recent defeat to Bayern Munich.

The Portuguese star had three pairs of boots stolen from the dressing room prior to the match in Munich, with other victims including Karim Benzema and Mesut Ozil.

Police are now investigating the theft after Real Madrid lodged a compliant with UEFA.

Luckily Bayern stadium announcer Stephan Lehmann came to the rescue by sending Ronaldo a pair of traditional Bavarian brogues.

“He won’t score any goals with them but he will look really snazzy,” he said.
