Ozil slams media, pundits feeding off Cristiano Ronaldo


Former Real Madrid star, Mesut Ozil has hit hard on the media and pundits for the negativity they constantly dish out on his former team mate, Cristiano Ronaldo.

The former World Cup winner took to his social media to show support to Ronaldo who has in recent weeks faced an unprecedented lashback from the media and pundits.

According to him, Ronaldo doesn’t deserve all the bad press about him as he believes he is being used to make more money.

“I really don’t get where this constant negativity from the press about Cristiano comes from … The Media is just trying to get clicks, and pundits who don’t have a career anymore just want to get attention with his big name and try to make him look bad.

“He is soon 38 years old – so what’s the surprise that he doesn’t score 50 goals a season anymore? Every football fan out there should be happy to have seen him playing world class football for 20 years – I don’t think anyone from the new generation will be able to match his numbers again. He will forever be in his own category. 🐐

“Everyone should show more respect to one of the greatest athletes in sports history,” he said.
