Portuguese mocks FIFA president after netting the first of three goals in Real Madrid’s 7-3 win over Sevilla.
Cristiano Ronaldo mocked FIFA president Sepp Blatter with a salute celebration after bagging the first of three goals – his 22nd hat-trick for Real Madrid – in the 7-3 mauling of Sevilla at the Bernabeu on Wednesday.
Blatter provoked a furious reaction from Ronaldo after describing the Portuguese as a ‘commander’ and claiming the former Manchester United star had “more expenses for the hairdresser” than Barcelona rival Lionel Messi.
“This video shows clearly the respect and consideration that Fifa has for me, for my club and my country,” Ronaldo wrote on his official facebook page.
“Much is explained now. I wish Mr Blatter health and a long life, with the certainty that he will continue to witness, as he deserves, the successes of his favourite teams and players.”
The Swiss issued a grovelling apology, insisting he was a fan of Real and stressing Ronaldo and Messi were on the same level, but the Los Blancos forward proved the issue is not forgotten with this celebration after bagging a penalty to put Real 3-0:
