Because he is one of the most popular athletes in the world, Cristiano Ronaldo is also one of the most hated. Fans of rival soccer clubs loathe Ronaldo for a number of reasons, including but not limited to the fact that they’re threatened by his ability and hate his cocky attitude. If you ask Cristiano himself, he might tell you that the haters get on him because he’s so handsome and wealthy.
Former Chelsea and Portugal manager Phil Scolari agrees with Ronaldo, albeit in a slightly more detailed manner.
“Some people do not like him because he is a great player, good-looking and has sex with all the ladies,” Scolari told SporTV Arena according to Sambafoot. “People get jealous. As a person he is spectacular, wonderful. He works socially like no other. He’s a good team-mate, a great footballer, and a great friend.”
Scolari also said that if it weren’t for that damn Lionel Messi, Ronaldo would be all set. Unfortunately, Messi has done a good job of stepping all over the whole “Ronaldo is the best in the world” thing.
“The only bad thing about Cristiano’s life is Messi,” Scolari continued. “If it wasn’t for Messi, Cristiano would be the best player in the world for five consecutive years.”
If only, if only. If you have to be hated by a large amount of people, it might as well be because you get so much action. There are surely a few people out there that would argue that they hate Ronaldo because he’s an actor on the pitch, but he’ll probably stick with the sex thing. It makes him sound cooler.
