Don’t Hate Cristiano Ronaldo Because He’s Beautiful

All of you fans of opposing clubs who boo, hiss and taunt Cristiano Ronaldo when he comes to play against your favorite squad? You are all jealous haters. At least that’s what Ronaldo had to say after his Real Madrid beat Dinamo Zagreb 1-0 in Champions League play in a match which featured a bevy of boos directed at the superstar forward.

While making whiny post-match comments about how the referees don’t protect him like they do other “good players,” Ronaldo also took a moment to point out the reason behind the many ways it is so hard for him to just be himself in this cruel, cruel world, which are mainly due to his skills, success and devastating handsomeness. Via The Guardian:

“I think that because I am rich, handsome and a great player people are envious of me. I don’t have any other explanation.”

Nope, no other explanation is possible, and boy, do I know how that goes. Haters wanna hate, amirite? Me and Ronaldo? We are like two peas in a pod. You know, except for the being rich and a great soccer player part. Also, he might have the edge on me on the whole handsome thing, too. But other than that, it would be hard to differentiate the two of us if he were standing side by side.
