Cristiano Ronaldo might wear the crown as the best soccer player in the world, but his Ballon d’Or means little to the denizens at the Vicente Calderon Stadium.
Ronaldo had a hilariously unpleasant exchange with one of Atletico Madrid’s ball boys during Sunday’s Madrid derby. It highlighted the animosity that exists between the Spanish capital’s two biggest clubs.
With Real Madrid trailing 2-1 (thanks to Gabi’s sensational long-range strike) in the 71st minute, Ronaldo wanted the ball boy to hurry up and give him the ball so he could throw it back into play. The ball boy wasn’t interested in obliging the Portuguese superstar.
Ronaldo waited. Then he ran toward the ball boy in order to get the ball himself. Just before Ronaldo arrived, the ball boy tossed it away in a heroic display of disgust (at least, in the eyes of the Atletico Madrid fans).

Cristiano Ronaldo has millions of fans around the world, but there could be even more people who hate him. One of the ball boys who was working the sideline during Real Madrid’s draw against Atletico Madrid over the weekend must fall under the latter umbrella. The ball went out of bounds with Real trailing 2-1 […]
This Atlético Madrid ball boy has a lot of balls. Instead of bowing down to Cristiano Ronaldo, the ball boy told the Real Madrid star to go fetch.
Ronaldo would get his revenge in the 82nd minute by scoring the equalizing goal and tying the match at 2-2. Much respect to the youngster who became a man though.

I’m not a Cristiano Ronaldo hater. I think the guy is the best player is the best player in the world. That’s why I think this is kind of bush league and isn’t really funny. At the time, Real was losing to Atleti in one of the tightest league races in the world. No need for this….
