I’ve been wanting to let out this rant for some time and I figured now is as good a time as any. I go to almost every home game in the Bernabeu and I don’t know who has the balls to whistle a player who scores 55+ goals ever season, this season being no exception, even though he is now over 30.
You don’t like Cristiano’s “selfish attitude”? Piss off, as the British say.
What a great expression.
Frankly I don’t care if he celebrates his teammates goals or not, or if he kicks the ball into the net when Arbeloa takes the ball right off his foot for the score. I was there at that match, it happened right in front of me and I had no clue what people were wining about.
Cristiano’s ego is what drives him. Without it he is not who he is and he would not be putting up scoring numbers like nobody else has in history with the sole exception of Messi. Wow, we are blessed to be witnessing these 2 go at it, right now, in the same era. We should build a shrine to Cristiano, not whistle him. The man has not only a ridiculous amount of goals but also a very good number of assists, disproving the notion that he is a ‘selfish player’.
Ronaldo wants to win. He wants to win everything. Liga, Champions, Copa, Balon D’or, Pichichi, Fifa player of the year, everything and anything. The man goes home after a match and does laps in his swimming pool. That’s how hard he works to be in the kind shape he needs to be to do what he does. That’s how well he takes care of himself so the fat, out of shape, lazy losers at the Bernabeu can whistle him when he misses a free kick or loses the ball.
Journalists in Spain have nothing better talk about so they make up a bunch of nonsense about Cristiano’s attitude problem. I go to most of the open training sessions. Cristiano gets along great with everyone. He’s always laughing and joking with teammates. Everyone says he’s a nice person, even Gerard Pique, who plays for the arch-rival.
Is he too concerned about personal glory? I didn’t give a bleep! As long as he keeps scoring goals and setting up his teammates more power to him. You have to take the good with the ‘bad’. A non-ambitious Cristiano would be just another striker, not sure what that would look like. What I do know is that we’re witnessing history. When is the next time we’ll see a player put on the Real Madrid shirt who scores goals like Cristiano? It’s going to be a very long time from now.
