Manchester Utd star says ‘it’s good to be different’
The Spoiler is no stranger to bucking the trend of conventional fashion – one time we wore a belt that didn’t match with our shoes – but we would probably draw the line at stepping out in hot pants and a skin tight shirt, with a pretty little flower in our hair.
Speaking from his current holiday destination Los Angeles (the place where paraded his waxed mahogany pins in a dashing pair of silver hotpants last year), the Manchester Utd winger has defended his love of ridiculous outfits:
“I don’t know why people are so interested in what I wear on holiday. Last year, when I was in LA, everyone was talking about my tight trunks.
“Have you seen what people in LA wear? I was the most normal dressed person over there.”
That can’t possibly be true, Ronny, but do go on…
“Anyway, what’s wrong with wearing tight pants? They look good and it’s better than having tan lines down your legs.”
In a world where tan lines correlate directly to the tightness of the material around one’s groin, this is faultless logic.
“This year it was the pink hat with the flower. I don’t see what is wrong with it.
“I can see why, if you weren’t comfortable with your sexuality, you might not wear it. But I’m very comfortable so it’s not a problem for me.
“Men wear pink these days. OK, not many men wear flowers, but it’s good to be different.”
It’s clear Ronaldo isn’t intending to change his attention-grabbing ways: when asked if he was the best dressed player at Old Trafford, he responded: “Yes, I would like to think I am.”
