Cristiano Ronaldo has millions of fans around the world, but there could be even more people who hate him. One of the ball boys who was working the sideline during Real Madrid’s draw against Atletico Madrid over the weekend must fall under the latter umbrella.
The ball went out of bounds with Real trailing 2-1 in the 71st minute, and Ronaldo was looking to retrieve another one for a quick throw-in. Rather than tossing him a new ball, the ball boy stood there and held the ball out in front of himself as if to tell Ronaldo to come and get it. This angered Cristiano, who threw his hands up in the air and yelled something.
When Ronaldo went over the grab the ball, the ball boy threw it by him and stared him down.
Ronaldo later scored the equalizer to tie the game at 2-2, but the ball boy got a great story to tell his friends. He pissed the best soccer player in the world off in the middle of a match. It may have cost him his job, but it was probably worth it.
