WWE star and massive Liverpool FC fan Sheamus has fired some shots at Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo returned to Manchester United earlier this year after leaving in 2009 for spells with Real Madrid and Juventus, and now he’s back with Liverpool’s arch rivals.
In a recent interview with BT Sport, Sheamus took some shots at Ronaldo, playing down the idea that he’s one of the best football players ever, and saying the Portuguese “wouldn’t last five seconds” in a WWE ring.
“Is Ronaldo one of the greatest players ever? Absolutely not, he’s not. But he’s definitely a world-class player and one of the best that’s been in the last decade.
“But even if he scores a penalty he’s all about the camera mate, you know what I mean? Shirt off, ‘Where’s the camera?’ Even if he scores a penalty. I’m not knocking the guy or hating on him, but he knows exactly what he is doing.
“He wouldn’t last five seconds in the ring. He’s too soft, he’s too soft bro. Those players that go down when the wind blows or a blade of grass hits their shin, they wouldn’t last two minutes.
“I mean he’s got the showmanship but nothing else. He’s got no physicality, that’s what I mean.”
Sheamus himself is currently out of action with an injury, after breaking his nose for a second time in the space of just a few months, and undergoing another surgery on it at the end of September.
The Irishman will be moving to SmackDown as of October 22 following the recent WWE Draft.
