Bosnia fans chanted Messi’s name at Cristiano Ronaldo in airport

Dirty Tackle

Portugal arrived for their Euro 2012 playoff against Bosnia-Herzegovina and they were greeted by a local welcoming committee in the airport. As the players made their way through the terminal, the crowd chanted "Messi, Messi" at Cristiano Ronaldo.

At this point, Ronaldo is probably so used to hearing that chant that he sometimes thinks that is, in fact, his own name. But the fans' attempts to put him off his game probably won't work. After all, this is how Ronaldo explains jeers for him:

"It is because I am handsome, rich and a great player, because I am envied. I have no other explanation."

So I'm sure Ronaldo appreciated those jeers he considers compliments about his wealth and facial symmetry.
