STOP PRESS: Cristiano Ronaldo is arrogant!


Seriously, what is it about Real Madrid? EVERYONE hates them.

The only thing people can’t seem to agree on is who they should hate the most – Jose Mourinho for his referee-baiting, excuse-making arrogance? Or Cristiano Ronaldo for being Cristiano Ronaldo?

The latest person to wade into this hotly disputed debate is Osasuna striker, Walter Pandiani, who is firmly in the ‘Ronaldo is the biggest tit’ camp after their meeting last week…

Hitting every nerve of the toned Portuguese, Pandiani said this to Spanish paper Marca:

“What Ronaldo needs to do is to learn from the best player in the world – which is Messi. He should learn how he dribbles how he plays and learn to leave behind his arrogant attitude.

“You have to know where you came from and show more humility. When he has won the Super Cups and Copa del Reys that I have while in Spain then maybe he can come and talk to me – he is missing a screw.

“He should pay the €602 fine we’ve been given [for fans kicking the balls onto the pitch when Real were attacking] – it was him who kicked the balls into the crowd [while practicing his free-kicks pre-match].

“At Real Madrid they should think why Barcelona are applauded when they visit a rival and why they are whistled.”

    Jealousy rears its head in many ways.

    What a load of nonsense from Pandy regarding the ‘i’ve won more spanish cups than you’ argument.

    Maybe he should go and win the Champions League and then come back with an opinion

    Birmingham City reject

    I’d rather go to Ronaldo’s party than Messi’s. And thats how I judge most people.

    It is common to have many hot moments on a football field. But to ask a player HOW MUCH HE EARNS, especially by one of the richest in the world to a player from an ordinary team, is the height of proudness, cockyness and arrogance. I like Ronaldo, but its his this kind of attitude that make him the most sweared at, player in Spain.

    Hilarious. totally agree. everyone should take notes from Messi, the man is as humble and down to earth as ronaldo is inflated and arrogant.

    So CR is arrogant. And Messi is a whiner on the pitch. And Mourinho is The Special One.

    How about the fact that Osasuna fans can just happily kick balls onto the pitch every time Real is attacking without any repercussions?

    I’m sure Osasuna is happy to pay €602 for the 2 extra points they have from stopping Real from scoring because of this blatant cheating

    elcynico, i think you meant CR is arrogant and CR is a whiner on the pitch. he complains about everything, sooooo much more than messi.

    arshlavin – no, I mean Messi, little whining whinging Messi who runs to the ref at every opportunity and cries because the big boys pick on him.

    elcynico— i’ve seen Messi try to dribble through 3 or 4 defenders countless times, get knocked off the ball, and either just get right back on it or fall down and get back up. i’ve also seen CR try to dribble through 3 or 4 defenders countless times, and when he gets knocked off the ball he falls, throws his hands up in the air and makes a pouty face. without fail. not sure what games you’ve been watching haha.

    then again, i’m a barcelona fan and i’m assuming you’re a real madrid fan, so it is what it is.

    Nah, I’m not a Real fan, I’m a football fan. I can see that CR is an arrogant twit and I can also see that Messi is a crybaby. Just because CR dives, fakes injury etc. doesn’t change the fact that Messi is a “poor little me” urk.

    Seriously, if Messi and CR are the two best players in the world, it would be better that they are totally opposite in terms of character. How can there be gd guys when there are no bad guys? So Messi will play the angel, and CR will play the devil. Whatever it is, no doubt these two players are one of a kind.

    What a load of bulls***!
    For a start Ronaldo IS the BEST!
    People slag Ronaldo so much through jealousy. Its another case of ugly guys who are good at nothing having a gripe against guys who have everything so big up ugly guys like Rooney and Messi. Messi rarely does anything amazing in champs league, scores basic goals. Ronaldo has goal threat from all angles and can header, he is also worth much more of the pitch too.
