Cristiano Ronaldo Says Arrogant Image Cost Him

Cristiano Ronaldo believes his “arrogant” image has prevented him from capturing the hearts of football fans across the globe.

In an exclusive interview with CNN, the Real Madrid forward reveals how his on field demeanor has left him sitting in the shadow of the sport’s golden boy and fans’ favorite, Lionel Messi.

Ronaldo says he shouldn’t be punished for his serious demeanor on the pitch – he just wants to win and hates to lose. Really, this relentless desire to improve and win games and score goals is what has made Ronaldo one of the greatest to ever play the game. The collar of his jersey up, the arrogance, perhaps it’s all necessary and when Ronaldo retires he will be more respected as a footballer.
