Watch Man Utd star Cristiano Ronaldo fight ninjas in bizarre ad for new business venture alongside Salford shareholder

CRISTIANO RONALDO showed off his acrobats once again – to help fight off ninjas.

Fans have got used to seeing the footballing icon twist, jump, turn and flip – and sometimes tumble – his shredded body throughout his career.

Few could forget the sensational overhead kick he scored for Real Madrid at Juventus back in 2018.

But he took to Instagram early on Thursday to display his finest Chinese art of bian lian to fend off attacks from all angles – just like he has to do at Old Trafford.

The advert sees Ronaldo kick and swipe away the swords and fire.

There is even a reference to the Portuguese legend's trademark celebration before he walks away holding an umbrella bearing the name of the brand ZujuGP.

The new digital company aims to bring together football fans, with Ronaldo partnering Salford City shareholder, Valencia owner and Singaporean businessman Peter Lim in the venture.

Their website states: "ZujuGP is a community platform bridging East and West, we are an exchange not just between fans but worlds between businesses and ecosystems.



"The future of football will be mostly social, collaborative and defined by immersive experiences online.

"Having the world’s most influential footballer pay tribute to where the earliest form of football was played thousands of years ago, Cristiano Ronaldo attempts the Chinese art form of bian lian (变脸), his successive mask changes a literal and metaphoric reminder of the changing faces of football.

"Then finally a measured transition, towards a future where everyone can come together.

"Where we galvanise communities onto a single platform as a global football umbrella."

It was revealed earlier this month that Ronaldo can earn up to £1.5million per sponsored post on Instagram with his record 355m followers.

That is more than seven times any other Premier League player with his Manchester United team-mate way back on £208,000.
