Cristiano Ronaldo: Boogie Man
Cristiano is always in top form, but lately, yeesh, he is looking good on the pitch.
And this time we’re actually talking about his footy skills. Team-mate Wayne Rooney was recently quoted saying he thinks the C-dawg is the best player in the world at the moment.
Cristiano hasn’t publicly mentioned if he agrees with Wayne or not, but he has been very clear about one area where he outshines the competition:
Okay, two areas.
In this month’s Vogue, when asked whether he goes out dancing on his nights off, he admits to going to clubs, but says, “I’m very different from the English lads. I don’t need to drink alcohol before I can dance. It’s natural to me, it’s what I do.“
Take a moment to imagine the dancefloor at a random “hot” nightclub in Anywhere, UK. Cristiano and the Man U crew are kicking it in the VIP. Champs is flowing, groupies are hovering; it’s on, ya’ll. Suddenly, Beyonce comes blasting through the speakers. Cristiano leaves a trail of drunken slow steppers in his wake as he takes over the dancefloor, white vest and slightly too tight jeans in effect, Lord of the Boogie-Dance. All bow to his superior rhythm and grace as he performs a medley of moves that would cause Peter Crouch to retire his size 24 dancing shoes.
It could happen.
Later on in the interview, when talking about the launch of his upcoming clothing line, CR7, Cristiano says that hands down, the best dressed player at Manchester United is himself.
It bears repeating: we love this man. It’s impossible not to.
