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. Credit Blatter this much, he cannot appear at a public forum without placing his foot squarely in his mouth.
Ronaldo caught wind of this and put Blatter on blast via a Facebook post Tuesday afternoon and hinted at a bias when it comes to handing out the Ballon d’Or award for the world’s best player. Somehow Ronaldo took Blatter’s pantomiming into an attack on all of Portugal, too.
Take that, Sepp! The cat fight is on!
Clearly Ronaldo’s handlers showed a little better judgement crafting this assault on Blatter than they did with last week’s boy’s underwear Twitter snafu.
Before this could escalate, Blatter (or his PR team) issued apology tweets:
Darn. It was fun while it lasted.
