Manchester United ace Cristiano Ronaldo has given viewers a glimpse of his personalized shin guards which didn’t suit many fans.
The 37-year-old was not included in the starting line-up against Burnley but replaced Edison Cavani in the second half.
However, the striker couldn’t help his side find the winner they were hoping for which ended in a 1-1 draw.
But despite the loss, fans were more intrigued by Ronaldo’s personalized shin guards which featured each of his four children, including a large photo of himself next to a Portugal national team crest.

Before Ronaldo arrived at Turf Moor, he was filmed kissing each of his children’s faces on the shin guards – a possible superstition for the Portuguese, believing his children can bring him good luck.
And while it’s a healthy move, some fans pointed out that it’s typical of the superstar to have his own face on his shin guards.

It’s not possible that Ronaldo just kissed his shin guards with his own face on them. The goat of self-esteem.

Quite bizarre that Ronaldo has pictures of him on his shin guards. Even weirder that he kisses the photo of him before putting them on…
