Mikel: I Can Never Be Ronaldo’s Fan Because Of His Ego

Former Super Eagles midfielder, Mikel Obi has revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo’s excessive ego has prevent him from becoming his fan.

The Portuguese international, who was on the score sheet in the team’s 3-2 win over Ghana in the 2022 World Cup on Thursday, recently left Man United on mutual agreement after his controversial interview with Piers Morgan.


However, in a chat with Dubai Eye, Mikel insisted he has always preferred the 37-year-old’s rival, Lionel Messi.

“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,” Obi Mikel told Dubai Eye.

Ronaldo became the first player in World Cup history to score in five successive tournaments.
