Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the most popular and successful footballers in the history of sportsmen, and according to him that comes with having haters.
The Real Madrid player has made quite a name for himself, both in the world of football and off the soccer field, winning numerous awards like the ballon d’or and cupping loads of modeling and endorsement deals which still fetch him a lot of fortune when he is not making money off his football skills.
While it is not unusual for successful players like Ronaldo to live life in the fast lane and buy lots of luxurious things, there is still something about the footballer that gets to attract more hate and criticism than usual from soccer fans all over the world.
Responding to why he thought a lot of people hate him, Ronaldo blamed it on jealousy and the fact that he was so handsome and successful.
“I think that because I am rich, handsome and a great player people are envious of me. I don’t have any other explanation,” he said.
The footballer is also currently dating Russian supermodel Irina Shayk who has bagged her own fair share of success and controversies as well.
