Iker Casillas girlfriend & sports reporter Sara Carbonero banned from talking about Cristiano Ronaldo

Jersey chaser and sports reporter Sara Carbonero is banned from talking about Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo. You may remember Carbonero when she stole World Cup headlines when her boyfriend and Spain goalkeeper captain Iker Casillas kissed her after he won the World Cup.

Back in September, on a Spanish talk show, Carbonero again stole the spotlight when she criticized Ronaldo saying, “Ronaldo has always been like that, selfish and an individualist on the pitch and Real Madrid signed him like that…”

The remarks angered Ronaldo and caused tension between him and Casillas. Casillas has publicly defended his girlfriend saying her remarks were misinterpreted. But the rift is apparently so bad between the teammates that Carbonero is now banned from talking about Ronaldo until the storm is weathered. #TeamCarbonero
