I know this sounds crazy but if a football team is playing against the team I support and Christiano Ronaldo happens to be in it, I always want to see him scoring. I end up ditching my team to support the team Ronaldo is playing for.
It’s like when a girl is married but she loves another guy such that if that guy was contesting a political seat with her husband, she would vote for him instead of her husband.
Back in the days when Christiano came to Man u from Sporting Lisbon, I quickly became his fan even though I hated Manchester United.
He made me support Real Madrid. I supported Juventus because of him and now that that he has left Juventus, I no longer watch any Juventus match unless it’s against a team with a player I support.
In the last two or three wold cup tournaments, I have always been routing for Portugal not because I love Portugal but because I am a Christiano Ronaldo fan.
I am starting to realize that I am not a fan of any football club anymore. I just have favourite players in various football clubs from different leagues around the world. Christiano Ronaldo happens to be on top of my list of favorite players followed by Erling Haaland, Neymar Santos, Ngòlo Kante, Robert Lewandowski, Reece James and several other players.
I have a feeling that I am not the only one who loves to see Christiano Ronaldo score even against the team I thought I was supporting. If you want to ask one of those questions that go like, ‘We ni fan wa club gani?’ spare me because I am not a fan of any football club anymore. I am just a fan of special players. Christiano Ronaldo is one of the special players.
I refuse to be loyal to a football club as if it’s worth it. There is no benefit of staying loyal to a football club because I don’t like wasting my energy where I am not getting paid. If I manage to influence 45 billion other people, soon they will be paying us to fill stadiums and cheer them on just like musicians are paying people to subscribe to their YouTube channel and follow them on Instagram.
You can’t be loyal to a club if you’re betting. If a team it’s not in good form it’s not. You’ve got to bet for the team that will win not lose money for the love of a club that doesn’t know reward you in any way.
