“That’s why Ronaldo is the greatest footballer of all time.” Fans – about the act of Cristiano
The Champions League kicked off with several exciting matches. In one of them, the Swiss Young Boys hosted Manchester United. The game had enough bright events: another goal from Cristiano Ronaldo , sending off and a sensational comeback of the hosts. But one episode was in the shadows, and it happened even before the starting whistle.
Ronaldo became the protagonist of the story. During the pre-game warm-up, the Portuguese shot inaccurately on goal and hit the ball into a female steward. The blow was so strong that she fell. The woman needed the help of colleagues, but Cristiano did not stand aside either. He approached the victim and began to communicate with her, trying to find out how much she got. Fortunately, there were no serious injuries.
After the match, Ronaldo did not forget about the steward, into which he loaded the ball, and gave her his shirt. A satisfied woman posed for photographers with a gift. She clearly liked the behavior of the five-time winner of the Ballon d’Or.
The act of Cristiano is noble and humanly correct. But the opinions of fans on social networks were radically different. Many began to scoff at Ronaldo and suspected him of showing off. Others admired the Portuguese as if he had saved the steward’s life.
The first category is bullying:
“He hit her with a free kick.”
“Next time he might kill someone. Let Brun take the free kicks. ”
“Ronaldo has a bunch of jerseys to give away to the fans he smashes their noses after free kicks every week.”
“He stopped hitting birds. Now he hits people. “
Another kind of comment is admiration:
“That’s why Ronaldo is the greatest footballer of all time.”
“I would like more players to behave like Ronaldo. What a kind person. “
“A Legend with a Kind Heart”.
“A wonderful gesture from a wonderful person.”
The Young Boys – Manchester United match itself ended in the most unexpected way. Ronaldo opened the scoring in the first half, then the “red devils” lost defender Aaron One-Bissaki for a rough foul, and in the second half the hosts began to burn. Apotheosis – the winning goal of the Swiss in the last seconds after bringing in by midfielder Jesse Lingard, who decided to pass without looking, being near his own penalty area.
After the match, Ronaldo tweeted in a neutral-encouraging tweet: “This is not the result we wanted, but now it’s time to recover and focus on the next game!” Although the face of the Portuguese showed how disappointed he was. Well, but at least a little distracted everyone from the game and its result by his action!
