Mirror: The replica of Ronald Ronaldo’s Golden Globe Award in 2013 was auctioned at the charity meeting, and Israel’s richest man won the bid without regret
According to the British media Mirror, the replica of the 2013 Golden Globe Award of Portuguese soccer star Ronaldo was sold to Idan Ofer, the richest man in Israel, after the charity auction in London in 2017.
At present, Ronaldo, who is playing for the Saudi Club Al-Nassr FC Victory, has won the Golden Ball Award five times. The first time was in 2008, when he was still playing for Manchester United, and the last four times were as Real Madrid players. The Golden Globe in 2013 was the most intense competition. Ronaldo won the final trophy after beating Messi and Ribery. （ The 2013 contest was one of the more tightly-fought, with the Portugal star pipping Lionel Messi and Franck Ribery to top honours.）
The Mirror newspaper said that after the 13-year Golden Globe Awards ceremony, Luo chose to donate the Golden Globe trophy to charity. It was finally auctioned, and the proceeds would raise funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. At the auction, Israel’s richest man, Idan Ofer, sold it for 600000 euros.
According to the report from Marca at that time, Ronald asked the charity to auction his 2013 trophy as a replica, and ESPN also reported that the real trophy was still on display in the museum in Madeira. This six-figure amount was directly donated to children’s charity to send blessings to the seriously ill children.
In the event in London, many other items were also auctioned. This included a meeting with the current Manchester City coach Guardiola and the then Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho at the price of 30000 euros.
According to Forbes, Oliver is the winner of the Ronaldo Cup. It is reported that his fortune is 9.9 billion US dollars (8.1 billion pounds). He holds shares in two football clubs and invested in Atletico Madrid in late 2017, and later became the major shareholder of the Portuguese team, Falcon.
It is reported that Ronaldo himself did not attend the auction. At that time, his agent Mendes handed the trophy to Oliver.
