The driver is none other than soon to be crowned world footballer of the year, Manchester United’s very own Cristiano Ronaldo and thankfully for Reds everywhere, not to mention the world of football, the Portuguese star is unharmed. Fast forward a week and Chelsea visit Old Trafford in an early title deciding game. In between the chants of R20;Viva John Terry” from United fans, the opposition can be heard singing something far more sinister. “You should’ve died in the tunnel” was the sick chant heard from the Chelsea visitors.
Even the normally Chelsea-loving Sun newspaper picked up on the disgusting song and mentioned it in the match report. Chelsea fans had no love for Ronaldo and made it clear during their 3-0 defeat at Old Trafford that day. It wasn’t the first time CR7 as he was becoming known, had felt the wrath of the Pensioners, the video below is another example of the warmth they’ve shown him.
The latest rumour to hit the inter web is that Ronaldo is set to follow Jose Mourinho to Stamford Bridge in the Summer. No one knows how likely this is – other than perhaps ‘God’ as Ronnie used to like reminding us. Should the second best player in World football decide to cast his mind back to how the Chelsea fans treated him- compared to how loved he is at Old Trafford then, surely it’s a bit of a no-brainer.
Do you think Ronaldo would join Chelsea? Should United break the bank to bring him back? Answers below in a semi-orderly fashion please:
