 Ghanaian Witch Doctor Claims Responsibility for Cristiano Ronaldo's Threatening Injury

A Ghanaian witch doctor has claimed responsibility for Cristiano Ronaldo's knee injury that is threatening the striker's participation at the World Cup with his national team, Portugal.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam, who is reportedly the most influential witch doctor in Ghana and whose name translates literally as 'Devil of Wednesday', had predicted in February that the Real Madrid ace would be forced to miss the World Cup in Brazil this summer due to injury.

According to The Guardian, a statement from the Portuguese FA had confirmed on Wednesday that Ronaldo is suffering from tendinosis in his left knee accompanied by a muscle problem in his left thigh, which cause the striker to miss the 0-0 draw with Greece at the weekend.

Bonsam has reportedly claimed to have conjured a special powder from his gods, mixed with several leaves and concoctions, which have been placed around an image and caricature of Ronaldo.

Bonsam, who serves at the Kofioo Kofi shrine, said that he knows what Ronaldo's injury is about, and is working on him, adding that he is very serious about it.

Bonsam said that he had claimed four months ago that he would work on Ronaldo seriously and rule the striker out of the World Cup or at least prevent him from playing against Ghana and the best thing he could do is to keep him out through injury.

The witch doctor added that any medic could never cure this injury, as they can never see what is causing the injury because it is spiritual.

Ghana is set to meet Portugal in their final match of Group G in Brasilia on 26 June, the report added.
