Ronaldo: There won’t be another me

Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo is a football legend with an aura of controversy trailing his thoughts, words and actions, yet he’s never faced by people’s negative assessment of his private life.

He responds in the media whenever he feels the urge, shove other footballers on the pitch, attack reporters when bugged with stupid questions, score amazing goals to hit back at critics, break records, and set the bars even higher. What’s more? He admits he’s a f**king rich faggot.

No player in the history of football has been as audacious, proud and outspoken as the Portugal international footballer.

Speaking at a recent football event, Ronaldo, 33, said he’s aware that there are many up-and-coming talents in the football world, with more of them possessing talents and potentials to become superstars. However, he expressed optimism that none of them will ever be like him.

The Real Madrid forward explained his opinions in a recent advert for Nike. There, he said his achievements and style are unique and something no other individual can copy.

‘It has been a life-long dream for me to be the best footballer in the world…I had this motivation from the start and it has been there – always,’ the 5-time Ballon d’Or winner revealed.

‘My friends mused about my ambitions and asked if I was insane…”What are you talking about?” they asked?’

‘Though I loved playing for fun during my time at Manchester United, I told myself that the potential is innate so I built it up,’ he added.

‘There are good footballer around, but I don’t see many people with my talent, my dedication, my work ethic,’ Ronaldo bragged. ‘I see none comparable to me…Nobody is going to be Cristiano Ronaldo.

In his last remark as the launch of his new boots, where he spoke about legacies, CR7 stated categorically: ‘You’re going to be yourself and I’m going to be myself.’

United paid a whooping £12 million to secure his services as a 16-year-old in 2003. It was a record fee for a player of his age.

Among his numerous football achievements, Ronaldo is the first player in history to win four European Golden Shoes.

In 2005, while the famous No. 7 was still playing for United, his father died from alcohol-related kidney problems. They were really close friends.

How Gareth Bale toppled Cristiano Ronaldo as Real Madrid’s Highest Earner

The rivalry between Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo is far from ending, not even now that the Welshman has outstaged him as the highest earner at Real Madrid.

On his arrival to Santiago Bernabeu, Bale was nicknamed a “ballhog” for not passing the ball to Ronaldo.

However, football critics argued in favor of the former Tottenham henchman, saying his action was a response to an alleged gang up, spearheaded by the Portuguese against him.

Media reports critisized CR7 for an alleged discontentment following rumors of a world record transfer fee paid by Madrid to sign Bale from Tottenham. This was the beginning of an acrimony that seem to be far from ending.

Neil Moxley wrote in a report published by Sunday People that the handwriting was boldly written on the wall from Bale’s first day at Bernabeu.

Football analysts say Ronaldo should take the blame for starting out on a bad footing with the 27-year-old. Rumors were rife that he was unhappy when Bale arrived as the club’s next big star.

Madrid players were playing one-touch with Bale when Ronaldo blessed him with a very dangerous sliding tackle, reports confirmed at that time.

Later in their training, Bale dribbled through Ronaldo’s legs to the applause of teammates, and the Cardiff-born star raised his two middle fingers to Ronaldo’s face – a “f**k you” sign that shows he doesn’t give a damn to the “burning coal”.

Though both players have made their marks on the pitch, playing for Madrid and their different countries, the Welshman’s stunning six year deal which is worth a whooping £600,000 a week, has placed him above Ronaldo in Madrid’s payroll.

The Wales international footballer is also said to have a BILLION euro buy-out clause attached to his new contract.

In 2013, Bale became the world’s most expensive player when he moved to the Bernabeu from Tottenham though the media accused Madrid of underplaying the transfer details in order not to outrage CR7.

The Brit has so far, won two Champions League titles and the Copa del Rey.

Bale will take home approximately £350,00-a-week after tax – more than Ronald’s current wage of £290,000.

The new contract has effectively squashed any hopes left for Manchester United and other English Premier League clubs that were said to be on his trail recently.

 

Bale applied a good business strategy during his contract negotiation which came at a very favourable time. He was offered a new deal earlier in the season but stalled on agreeing it, knowing that Real Madrid won’t be allowed to sign new players until January 2018 due to a ban from FIFA.

Bale joins Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Lucas Vazquez as the fourth player to sign a contract extension with Madrid since October.

“Real Madrid CF and Gareth Bale have agreed to the extension of the player’s contract, which ties him to the club until June 30, 2022,” said a club statement.

The Portuguese star looks favored to grab his fourth Ballon d’Or after Messi outstaged him for a fifth win, last year.

Reports say CR7 is negotiating his deal and is expected to sign a new contract soon. If his new salary happens to be anything above Bale’s current pay, it’ll be all good for the club and everyone but the Welshman is having a good at this moment.

John Toshack, the former Madrid coach who gave Bale his international debut at the age of 16, says Bale has all that he needs to be the best player at Madrid.

“I see a Real Madrid enjoying Bale at the top of his game for two or three years. I believe Bale will win the Ballon d’Or in his career. In a few years, he will become the leader,” Toshack said of the former Southampton fullback.

The Welshman has scored 62 goals, including 50 in La Liga, with only 135 appearances. His influence in the team makes him a part of Real Madrid’s deadly BBC forward line with Ronaldo and Karim Benzema.

Ronaldo always sad when teammates score goals – Alvaro Morata

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has been described by die-hard fans as a goal-getter, workaholic, and a role model. However, critics always see him as arrogant and selfish but never “evil”.

Cristiano Ronlado is enduring a frustrating time in front of goal for Real Madrid and has gone four home games without scoring

Teammate Alvaro Morata, who scored Madrid’s 83rd minute goal against Athletic Bilbao, has revealed why CR7 feels unhappy when other players score goals.

Missing so many chances in a game where one goal could make a huge difference, is frustrating. But the case if different for the famous No. 7 who hates to celebrate with others even when the team is 4, 5, or 6 goals ahead.

They take away the honor and glory meant for a “commander” so why should he celebrate for “field soldiers”?

Alvaro Arbeloa said earlier: “I’ve seen [Ronaldo’s reaction] and I don’t mind, and if it doesn’t bother me then it shouldn’t bother anyone.

“I understand his ambition to score goals, he wants to win the game and score because he wants to win the Pichichi which he’s battling Messi for. We want to help him, his ambition is what makes him number one and we are delighted to do so.”

“When you’re used to scoring almost 70 goals a season, it’s almost like an addiction for goals,” Alvaro Morata told Real Madrid’s official website.

“For us he is the most important player in the team and I hope that he scores lots of goals, but he is not a machine.

“He is a human being, even if he comes from another planet and is different, he also has the right to miss.”

While we thoughtfully give C. Ronaldo the benefit of doubt for being human, there are speculations in the media that the Portuguese proved himself “evil” in the match against Athletic Bilbao.

According to a report from Metro, the former Manchester United winger looked like he was appealing to the referee to consider Morata’s 83rd minute goal as offside. He wanted to take the glory of earning Madrid’s important three points from the La Liga game.

However, as luck handed Morata a chance to put Madrid ahead in the tensed home game, some bizarre pictures showed Ronaldo slapping his leg as the goal was awarded.

Why would CR7 be so selfish to the point of wanting his team to fail if he’s not the one scoring their winning goal?

Did Cristiano Ronaldo just do the most Cristiano Ronaldo thing ever v Bilbao?

Cristiano Ronaldo Now Owns An Airport.

Cristiano Ronaldo seem not to be the one chasing after fame but he just can’t stop making headlines. If it’s not about football, it’s about business, and when it’s not both, better buckle up for something super-interesting.

The Real Madrid star has added an airport to the long list of monuments named after him.

“Charity begins at home,” one might say.

CR7 has shown gratitude to his hometown Madeira in Portugal–by doing charity works, building hotels, erecting a museum and more–so now, the people he loves most dearly have decided to accord him some respect.

The airport in his hometown, formerly known as Madeira International has been named after the world-class footballer. It will now be referred to as CRISTIANO RONALDO AIRPORT.

Madeira International Airport now Cristiano Ronaldo Airport, because he’s beyond “International”.

“The announcement was made while Ronaldo was in the area to launch the first hotel named after him.

Who would be surprised if Ronaldo runs for Portugal presidency a few years later?

Ronaldo Reveals His Best Season Ever.

Cristiano Ronaldo admits 2015-16 bestowed on him, a Champions League trophy and a European Championships gold medal, adding that no other seasons with Portugal and Real Madrid had been better.

CR7 unequivocally said [2015/2016] has been his best season ever.

The former Manchester United hitman played a big role in the campaign that saw Madrid triumph over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League Final held in Munich, May 28.

Though he was sidelined 25 minutes into the Euro 2016 finals against France, there’s no doubt that Ronaldo was an inspiration for the Portugal team that won 1-0 at extra time.

Ronaldo’s three goals and three assists in the tournament gave him a spot in Euro 2016 Team of the Tournament,  and the famous striker admits he’s not had a campaign like it before.

In his brieft chat with Marca, the famous No. 7 said: “It was the best year of my life in terms of trophies. I won two major trophies with my club and my national team.

“The next trophy I’ll bring to my museum is the European Championship. I’m very proud to have achieved that.

“La Undecima was a very emotional, unique moment. Having the trophy here [in his museum] is incredible. Every time I see it I remember when I won the Champions League for the first time with Manchester United and both times with Madrid and I get very happy.

“Madrid is my club, I’ve been here seven seasons and I’m in a very happy and content moment. Everything is still amazing.

“The Ballon d’Or? You never expect to win individual trophies. They’re not everything and I’m not obsessed by it. I have a chance this year since I won the Euros and the Champions League, very important trophies.

“My injury? I’m improving, recovery is going well and I hope to return as quickly as possible.”

Raul Says Messi And Ronaldo Are From Another Planet.

Image: Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Raul Gonzalez reveals that his relationship with Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is very cordial, adding that both CR7 and Barca forward Lionel Messi are not from this planet.

The former Madrid captain Raul played alongside Ronaldo for a year before leaving Santiago Bernabeu.

In a chat with AS, the retired Spanish footballer admits the Portuguese has broken records and set more for posterity, adding that the club will surely miss Ronaldo when he retires but there’ll be life.

In his words: “What he is doing is enormous, but there is a great squad with players who can give more.

“The important thing is for everyone to work as a group.

“Cristiano has been the top scorer in seven or eight seasons. Nobody expected that, his desire to train every day and meet challenges.”

Talking about the short-lived relationship he had with Ronaldo, Raul said: “I have a good relationship with him. And the admiration is mutual. I only shared a locker room with him for a year, but it was an important year and we hit it off.

Comparing Ronaldo and Messi has been a difficult and useless thing to do. Raul adds: “What he and Messi are doing day after day has never been done by anyone else. Or by very few.

“I can’t speak of what happened before, but Cristiano and Messi are on another planet.

“Then they go to the national team and it isn’t easy, but Cristiano took a big step in winning the European Championships.”

The argument continued on CR7 being a leader on and off the pitch. Raul was also pressed for comments on Sergio Ramos’ leadership as Madrid captain, including questions about other issues at the club.

He said: “Ramos gives identity to the club, the team, his teammates. He’s been a real captain and a professional and naturally assumed that role, you could already see something special when he was young.

“When he arrived at Madrid he already had that personality, that urge to be there to support and drag others. His transition to the captaincy has been calm and natural.

“Luka Modric? He’s the difference in midfield, who makes the difference in unbalancing a complicated game. He always finds ways and paths. And he has integrated perfectly into Spanish culture, he speaks the language perfectly. Chapeau to him, because it isn’t just now but from the first moment. He carries a lot of weight in the team, he knows how to bring everything together.

“It wasn’t an easy year for James Rodriguez, but he will be very useful for the future. With his quality he will be very important for Madrid. I would like him to stay because he still has a lot to give. This has to serve as experience. You can’t live on what you did last year in Madrid. The competition doesn’t stop and you always have to be there. Football has to be important.”

The discussion continued on other players like Keylor Navas, and David De Gea who was chosen as Spain’s first choice goalkeeper at Euro 2016, replacing famous captain Iker Casillas for club and country.

“I saw Keylor recently and congratulated him, for his professionalism and how quickly he changed his mind-set. He’s shown his love for training and to play and do well and that’s what counts. Sometimes the things that make you suffer, make you better.

“We’ll never know about De Gea. It’s not that he has a great future, but rather he’s having a great present. He could have been defending the club for a long time and will do so for the national team, as Iker did.”

Ronaldo Says Portugal Will Win Euro 2016.

Cristiano Ronaldo says he’s confident that Portugal will win Euro 2016 finals against France. Anyone who knows him really well, will never stop appreciating the way he talks or carries himself on and off the pitch because he has passion for what he does–not pride. His worst critics know this, too.

CR7 is the kind of player every team or coach would like to have for the positivism he brings.

Cristiano Ronaldo is so successful because he is really serious, really professional,” his former Real manager Carlo Ancelotti told CNN.
The famous coach went a bit far in revealing one ritual his Ronaldo observes no matter who’s waiting in his bed. That was before he split from his former model-girlfriend, Irina Shayk.
Carlo said: “Usually when we got back at 3 a.m. from away games, instead of going to bed he would take an ice bath.”
Some people choose to love the Portuguese star for same reasons that others dislike him. While many see the player as arrogant, his teammates think otherwise. They’ve described him on many occasions as an athlete who is dedicated to his profession.
“He’s one of those players who polarizes opinion,” Owen Hargreaves, who played alongside Ronaldo at Manchester United, told CNN.
“Everybody loved him as a teammate and I think people misunderstood his body language because he was the ultimate competitor.
“People underestimate his work ethic and determination. As much as everyone thinks it’s all about him, he got there because he pushed himself.”
Hargreaves and Ronaldo played together at Manchester United.

Call it pride or passion–even both will do–the Real Madrid star has vowed that Portugal will beat France on Sunday to become European champions for the first time ever.

Ronaldo and his countrymen are just a few steps away from making history. A win against France in tonight’s derby will be a landmark in Portugal’s football history.

CR7 is only one goal and victory away from becoming the top scorer in European Championship history and captaining Portugal to glory at Euro 2016.

Winning this years European Championships final match at at Stade de France would mark the Seleccao’s first-ever major trophy which makes it a do-or-die affair for the team.

The famous No. 7 spoke with UEFA’s official website: “They are, in my opinion, favorites because they are playing at home and that’s a big advantage.

“The whole country is going to support them, but it’s a final and anything can happen. We’re going to be prepared and we’re going to be difficult to beat.

“Since the tournament started, nobody has beaten us, and I hope France aren’t going to beat us either.

“It’s something that I always dreamed of. It would be a huge achievement if I could win something with Portugal.

“My fingers are crossed because I believe, my colleagues believe, all of Portugal believes and the Portuguese community in France believe too.

“It’s unique, a feeling of joy, because being in a final is something I wanted to achieve again.

“Now I will have the fortune, if everything goes well, to be playing on Sunday in a second final for Portugal.

“In a final anything can happen. We know we will face a great opponent, a great national team, but it’s a final and anything is possible. It’s going to be a tough game for both of us.”

“[On being a goal away from becoming the Euros’ all-time top goalscorer], these things happen naturally,” he explained.

“I try not to be too obsessed with records. They happen. So it’s nice but nothing more. I feel good, young, strong. So what I want most is to keep on being successful.

“We have to believe positively. On Sunday it will be the first time that Portugal are going to win an important trophy.”

Zlatan Ibrahimovic had the chance to clinch the accolade, too, but the PSG legend failed to score in Sweden’s first two matches.

Ibra had motivations in the match against Belgium, fighting for his country’s pride as well as looking for a chance to grab the world record in his last international game.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s 50th minute equalizer in Portugal’s final group stage encounter meant that he has scored in each of the four tournaments he has played in: 2004, 2008, 2012 and now 2016.  Continue reading “Cristiano Ronaldo Breaks Record With Euro 2016.”

CR7 had a brief chat with Jugones from La Sexta and had a lot to say about the man, Benitez. It’ll be remembered that the former coach was hired last year and sacked by January, 2016.

During the interview, Jugones asked the famous Portuguese player if it was Benitez who taught him how to take free kicks and the intended sarcasm worked very well. Ronaldo couldn’t stop laughing at the thought. In his response: “You can always learn from your Coaches. Some things can be learned and not others. I saw different things from him than from other Coaches, but obviously there are things no one can teach you. You’ve either got it or you haven’t.
