Photo: Ronaldo Gives Sporting Fans The Finger
Ronaldo claims he was flipping off team mate Pepe as a joke, but an expert in lip reading and sign language says otherwise.
Not even a week after the Real Madrid #10 Cristiano Ronaldo said people booed him because they were envious of his looks, wealth and soccer skills, the player got the boo treatment again, ahead of the Madrid’s game against Sporting.
Sporting fans verbally abused Ronaldo until he lost his cool and flipped them off, telling team mate Pepe where all the Sporting fans could shove their jeers. After the fact, Ronaldo said he had shown the finger to Pepe as a joke and that the whole thing was a misunderstanding.
But the Spanish show “Punto Pelota” called in Alejandra Neira, an expert in sign language and lip reading, who was100% sure that Ronaldo’s comments to Pepe were hostile towards Sporting fans, and certainly not a joke.
