FIFA president Sepp Blatter apologise to Cristiano Ronaldo

Sepp Blatter has apologised to Cristiano Ronaldo after the Real Madrid star attacked him in a sarcastic post on Facebook.

FIFA president Blatter had earlier mockingly impersonated Ronaldo in a speech to the Oxford Students Union. During a discussion in which Blatter said he preferred Lionel Messi, the FIFA president got out of his chair to do an impersonation of Ronaldo. Blatter also seems to have a dig at the Madrid forward, saying that 'one has more expenses for the hairdresser than the other'.

This caused the Portuguese, shortlisted for the 2013 Ballon d'Or, to post on Facebook: 'This video shows clearly the respect and consideration that FIFA has for me, for my club and my country.

'Much is explained now. I wish Mr. Blatter health and a long life, with the certainty that he will continue to witness, as he deserves, the successes of his favourite teams and players.'

Blatter later wrote on Twitter: 'Dear @Cristiano. I apologise if you were upset by my light-hearted answer at private event on Friday. I never meant to offend you.

'I am an honorary 'socio' at Real Madrid @cristiano & explained we've many talented players in world game, including you. Best wishes.'

This came after Real Madrid wrote to FIFA asking Blatter to apologise for comments he made about Ronaldo.


'They are both exceptional players, but they are totally different. They are totally different stars.

'Lionel Messi is a good boy, that every father and every mother would like to take home. He's a good man, he's very fast, and he's not exuberant, he's playing well, he's dancing. He's a kind man, a good boy. That's what makes him so popular, and naturally he'll always get a lot of votes because he plays well and scores goal.

'The other one (Ronaldo) is something else. He is like a commander on the field of play. (Blatter then mock marches around the stage and receives a round of applause).

'This is the other side of football and it's good to have commanders on the field.

'They don't have the same attitude and that gives life to football. One has more expenses for the hairdresser than the other but that doesn't matter.

'I can't say who is the best - there will be a contest again this year at the Ballon d'Or.

'I like both of them, but I prefer Messi.'
