As egocentric as talented, Cristiano Ronaldo shakes the football world with every dribble and every surrealist statement. His ego is what makes his strength and is the mark of great champions.
Like LeBron James or Kanye West, Cristiano Ronaldo is one of those celebrities whose ego competes with talent. Some will think that this is impossible in the case of the Portuguese star, who has signed extraordinary years by winning the Champions League, the Euro with Portugal and a fifth Ballon D’Or. Wait to read these ten cults before making your verdict …
“I am rich, handsome, a great player and people are jealous of me.”
Some will see in this self-portrait an excess of vanity, others an incredible lucidity. Or maybe both.
“Of course the club can pay 94 million for me. I am sure to be worth more.”
Cristiano is a treasure of inestimable value.
“I like people hissing at me, I like to see hatred in their eyes.”
Instead of responding to provocations, Cristiano Ronaldo prefers to turn the other cheek. Would he have acquired British phlegm when he played Manchester United?
“Your love makes me strong, your hate makes me invincible.”
CR7 seems as invincible as the incredible Hulk and as waterproof as a K-way to the clouds of criticism.
“To put my son to sleep, I score goals.”
Some sing lullabies, others wear their crampons and sign quadruplets. Why make it simple when you can make it complicated ?
“Goals are like ketchup. Sometimes it does not go out, but when it comes out, it’s all of a sudden.”
Very beautiful allegory. He could still pay tribute to his homeland by mentioning the Madeira sauce.
“Iniesta, Xavi and Messi are playing very well right now. But if I had the power to recruit any player from Barcelona, I would not take anyone.”
CR7 should say that to coach Roja, whose squad consists of many players from FC Barcelona.
“Other than me, I do not have a favorite player. I’m kidding, I’m kidding. There are fantastic players, and I like to play alongside them, as is the case at Real Madrid. I also like playing against other good players.”
Why does Cristiano have to say twice that he’s joking when he throws flowers?
“When I was at United, I received an offer from Barcelona and I refused. Maybe that’s why they hate me so much.”
Everything is explained…
“I’m the first, second and third best player in the world.”
