For those of you wondering why CR7 celebrated his first goal against Sevilla in the manner he did, then look no further than Sepp Blatter. FIFA’s president nailed his colors to the mast when addressing Oxford University students earlier last week when he was asked to choose between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Blatter said he preferred Messi, but not before he mimicked Ronaldo in bizarre fashion by marching across the stage like a soldier and describing the Real Madrid forward as a “commander” … which drew laughter and applause from the young brains in the audience. Blatter has since apologized for his “light-hearted” comments following criticism from Real Madrid and Ronaldo himself, who suggested the Swiss was biased against him, Real Madrid and Portugal.
I wish Mr.Blatter health and a long life, with the certainty that he’ll continue to witness the successes of his favourite teams and players— Cristiano Ronaldo (@Cristiano) October 29, 2013
So when Ronaldo denied Bale the chance to score his hat-trick from the penalty spot we now know why. CR7 we salute you!
