Ronaldo Wants Back In Manchester?

He likes fame more than he likes Soccer apparently.

So now Cristiano Ronaldo says something that secures my beliefs about him.  He says he sees his career taking him back to Manchester United eventually.  Huh?

If I’m Real Madrid I want two things:

1.  An explanation

2.  All my money back

Jim Mora got fired from the Atlanta Falcons for doing basically the same thing as what Ronaldo just did.  He romanticized another job in a radio interview and then the Falcons had a couple bad games and he got fired.  He got fired because he wanted to be somewhere else.

I don’t care how prolific Ronaldo is in Madrid…he’s there PURELY for money.  I have no problem with guys getting paid.  In fact, I encourage it.  However, you DO have to be playing for the love of the game.  So, you’re doing something you love in a place you love AND you’re getting rich of it…that’s cool.

Ronaldo is not in that kind of situation.  He went to Madrid SO that he could be the highest paid player in the history of time.  Not for any other reason.  Why do you think he plays so sporadically and gets hurt alot?  He’s thinking only of himself.  That’s why he isn’t a leader on the field.  I used to think it just wasn’t him and that was a shame because he’s Real’s best player, but now I know it’s because he doesn’t care.

He’s thinking of hsi next paycheck for the balance of every match…unfortunately that will not catch Real up to Barca this season…or any other season for that matter.

Contrast that with someone like Leo Messi who leads on the field, leads a favorite into the World Cup and leads the reigning league and European Champion.  Yeah, Messi likes getting paid, but he likes playing more.

Take some notes Crissy…you’ve been found out.
