Vera Ribeiro, the wife of Portugal goalkeeper, Rui Patricio, who is a sex therapist , has asked the national coach, Fernando Santos, to allow Cristiano Ronaldo and others to masturbate during the 2018 World Cup tournament in order to kill ‘anxiety.Daily post reportsVera, a psychologist who specializes in sexual matters, has published a book in which she examines the love life of footballers.
England fans had eight years ago, branded Ronaldo the biggest ‘winker’ in football for getting Wayne Rooney sent off at the World Cup.
According to Patricio’s wife, the Portugal national team will have a better chance of winning “The World Cup if coach Fernando Santos urges his players to masturbate.”
Dr Ribeiro argues that, “Players will be able to cope with anxiety and stress much better during the tournament if they indulge themselves regularly.”
She insists that, “Nothing positive comes from sexual abstinence” – and that forbidding players to make love before games also has a negative impact.
Appearing on a Portuguese TV programme, she added, “The football player should not abstain from having sex before games, but we also know that in terms of routine they are not in contact with families either.
“We cannot associate sports performance with the occurrence of sex.”
