Portuguese football star Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed his predicament while being stalked by a smitten Dutch beauty, who saw in his eyes that she was the "love of his life".

The girl first saw the ace footballer in Holland and then followed him back to Manchester on the same flight. At 6 a.m. she knocked at Ronaldo’s door to see him, following which the player had to call security men to turn back the girl.

The Portuguese star reportedly peeped through the window at his Cheshire home and recognised her from the plane.

"It was a Dutch girl who had come looking for me without any suitcases or anything and was going round asking people where I lived. She told my cousin Nuno that she had travelled especially to see me. According to the girl, when I went to Holland, she saw in my eyes that she was the love of my life. I told her to come back in the afternoon. I spoke with her and with her mum on the phone. It was a very strange situation," The Sun quoted him as saying.

Subsequently, the girl was persuaded to return to Holland, but just two months later was back at his house.

Ronaldo told Portuguese sports paper A Bola: "At that point I had to do something. I called the club’s security and from that moment on I didn’t hear anything more from her."
