John Obi Mikel Slams Cristiano Ronaldo Over Manchester United Exit

Nigeria Legend John Obi Mikel has explained why he is a fan of Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi and not a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo. Ronaldo is currently a free agent after his contract was terminated by Manchester United earlier this week.
Mikel, who played for Chelsea, has picked his favourite between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, and explained why he doesn’t particularly like the Portugal forward.

Mikel said: “I’ve never been a Ronaldo fan really. For me, when a player has so much ego, I don’t really get it. He’s never been one of my favourite players and that’s why I always go for Messi really.”

Mikel also believes Ronaldo’s exit from Man United was a horrible situation which the player would have avoided but due to some thing only Ronaldo knows, he had to risk it all.

Mikel continued by saying: “I mean, if someone comes out and gives such an interview, what makes you think, if he signs for your club in January, he won’t do the same?” he asked. So, I mean, every club is going to be aware of that… but listen, he is Cristiano Ronaldo; he’s one of the greatest players ever to have played the game. I think he’s going to get another club in January and continue his football career. But for me, it’s just a horrible scenario, he’s done so much for the club, and to see it end this way, it’s just horrible. On his part really, I would say that interview shouldn’t have been done, wrong timing as well. It’s just not right. It doesn’t look right for such a player that has achieved so much in the game.”
