Cristiano Ronaldo fires back at Atletico Madrid fan’s banner
In the first preseason game, some Atletico Madrid supporters made it obvious that they did not want Cristiano Ronaldo to join the team by holding up a sign that said, “CR7 not welcome.” Look at what the Portuguese said. Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked to a number of European teams in the wake of his alleged transfer request to Manchester United, including Atletico Madrid, but their supporters don’t appear to be in favor of the idea.
The Union Internacional de Peas, a fan organization, issued a statement shortly after the news surfaced opposing the idea of signing Ronaldo, claiming that he symbolizes the “antithesis of our beliefs” and that they would not accept his coming even if he won the title. Additionally, a group of supporters who were present for the Colchoneros’ first preseason match against Numancia informed the administration that they did not want the Portuguese striker to join the team by displaying a banner that read “CR7 not welcome” and yelling in opposition to his potential admission. It didn’t take Ronaldo long to respond.
It is no secret that Ronaldo has never been a great favorite of Atletico Madrid supporters. Despite the fact that we’re discussing one of the greatest players ever, the Colchoneros have reasons to dislike the Portuguese. Atleti were not only a Real Madrid legend, but they were also one of his all-time favorite targets. Ronaldo responded to an Instagram photo displaying the Colchoneros’ response with laughing and sobbing emoticons, far from appearing disturbed about the flag or the chants that Atleti supporters sang during the Numancia game.
Ronaldo also reacted to his transfer rumors, taking a shot at the media: “It is impossible not to talk about me one day.” Otherwise, the press makes no money. You know that if you don’t lie, you can’t get people’s attention. “You’ll get some good news one day.”
It’s still unclear whether Ronaldo will finally decide to stay at United. Although the 37-year-old said Erik ten Hag counts on him for his first season in command, he seemed interested in departing for a Champions League team. How this ultimately turns out will be determined only by time.
