Ronaldo Blasts Sepp Blatter for mocking him, FIFA Chief Apologises

Sepp Blatter, FIFA’s fearless leader, was caught on video speaking at Oxford University in England last week. In the video the Blatter talks about the two best players on the planet — Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 77-year Blatter labels Messi as a “good boy” and Ronaldo “the other one” with a more expensive hairdresser. He also offers his unique impression of Ronaldo on the field. 

On the day Ronaldo was shortlisted for the 2013 Ballon d'Or, he responded on his Facebook page: 'This video shows clearly the respect and consideration that FIFA has for me, for my club and my country. 

'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.'

Real Madrid have also written to FIFA asking Blatter to apologise for comments he made about Ronaldo.

In his press conference ahead of Wednesday's game against Sevilla, Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti said: 'The president [Florentino Perez] has sent a letter to FIFA asking Blatter to rectify his comments that showed a lack of respect to Cristiano.'

However the most important man in world football has swallowed his pride as he apologized to the Portuguese star.


'They are both exceptional players, but they are totally different. They are totally different stars.

'Lionel Messi is a good boy, that every father and every mother would like to take home. He's a good man, he's very fast, and he's not exuberant, he's playing well, he's dancing. He's a kind man, a good boy. That's what makes him so popular, and naturally he'll always get a lot of votes because he plays well and scores goal.

'The other one (Ronaldo) is something else. He is like a commander on the field of play. (Blatter then mock marches around the stage and receives a round of applause).

'This is the other side of football and it's good to have commanders on the field.

'They don't have the same attitude and that gives life to football. One has more expenses for the hairdresser than the other but that doesn't matter.

'I can't say who is the best - there will be a contest again this year at the Ballon d'Or.

'I like both of them, but I prefer Messi.'
