Cristiano Ronaldo’s bed is to be put up for auction by Slovenian hotel – with starting price set at £4,300 (N7.095m) after the forward stayed in Ljubljana for Portugal friendly last week

The Slovenian hotel has decided to auction the bed he slept on for charity, reports MailOnline.

Ronaldo travelled to the Slovenian capital for a friendly that Portugal played against the central European country on March 26 ahead of this summer’s Euros.

He stayed at the Grand Plaza Hotel with the rest of the Portugal squad, and a spokesperson has now confirmed that the bed he slept on will be auctioned for charity.

‘Since this was a rather special and unique event, we decided to prepare a unique surprise in which all fans can participate,’ they said.

‘We don’t know when we’ll have the chance to host Ronaldo in Slovenia again.

‘At a special auction, we will offer the bed in which the star Cristiano Ronaldo slept at our place. We wish everyone good luck and successful participation in the event.’

The starting bid will be set at €5,000 (£4,300), with the hotel teaming up with media company POP TV to get the best value possible for the bed that was occupied by Ronaldo just days ago.

Away from the hotel, things did not go to plan for Ronaldo and co as they slumped to their first defeat under Roberto Martinez.

The former Belgium, Everton and Wigan boss took over the Portuguese national team after the 2022 World Cup and had led his side to 11 straight wins, but they were beaten 2-0 by Slovenia thanks to goals in the final 20 minutes from Adam Cerin and Timi Elsnik.

Ronaldo stormed off the pitch at the final whistle after appearing to become annoyed by decisions that went against his team during the game.

Portugal are still set to enter the Euros as one of the favourites, eight years on from winning the tournament by beating hosts France in the final.

Slovenia’s impressive win was also a warning for England, with the two teams set to meet each other in their final group game on June 25.
