Just last week Cristiano Ronaldo made the following remarks when he was asked about fans booing and cursing him, “I think that because I am rich, handsome and a great player people are envious of me. I don’t have any other explanation.” While it may seem pompous, we give Cristiano Ronaldo points for defending his wealth. Anyone with large sums of money and success knows haters are plentiful that will try and take you down. Let’s face it, Cristiano Ronaldo is considered one of the best in the world. And he went on to say that this happens to him everywhere, not just in rival stadiums.
But these particular comments came after a 1-0 Champions League win during the Group D opener in Croatia’s Dinamo Zagreb Stadium. And even though Real Madrid won, Cristiano Ronaldo had no problem expressing his lack of confidence in the overseeing referees, “I’m not so satisfied with the refereeing.” And later said, “I hope we never have this referee again.” This year’s run for Madrid towards Europe’s elite club competition would be their 10th title if they are successful.
