Rant in Spanish like a millionaire

One of the best and highest paid soccer players in the world is Cristiano Ronaldo from Portugal.

Recently he was complaining that opposition players always hack him down with fouls. According to Ronaldo he gets no protection from the referees while other players are carefully watch after.

Then he added, “por ser rico por ser guapo por ser un gran jugador las personas tienen envidia de mi. No tiene otra explicación”


“For being rich, for being handsome, for being a great player the people are jealous of me. It has no other explanation.”

Well, he’s definitely a great player. And he’s rich, last year Real Madrid paid him more than one million Euros per month. (USD$1.35 million)

Is he really as handsome as he thinks? Judge for yourself here:

Let me know what you think of el galán (the handsome young man).

If you found Ronaldo hard to understand, no te preocupes, don’t be worried. He does have a strong Portuguese accent. Plus he’s definitely in a grumbling mood and as a consequence mumbling his words.

If you find all Spanish speakers hard to understand, check out Spanish Ear Training. It’s a program especially designed to tune up your ear for understanding fast paced spoken Spanish.

Note: Spanish Ear Training is not a program for beginners. To get the most from the ear training, you need a strong foundation in Spanish. If you’d like to know about my path to get you speaking Spanish, click here.

He was the same in England, and it has to be said that his moaning about being fouled is correct. They did an analysis of his game and he was fouled 70% of the time when the referee did not award a free kick. As for arrogant yes he is, as for handsome well that is in the eye of the beholder and he obviously has a high opinion of himself.

Quizas guapo pero sin carisma además de parecer de mal humor.
Has he become too big for his own breeches?

First of all…He is not that good looking, secondly…He is a very conceited man, which in turn makes him very unattractive man who is extremely over paid as is any sports figure.

Hola Cristiano soy de Ecuador y pienso que es el mejor jugador del mundo y claro que es muy guapo y debe ser rico se lo merece no? yo pienso que Cristiano no debe hacer caso de eso y debe seguir denostrando con echos que es el mejor

Being French I can translate better than English, the similarity is very close. I would like to purchase the complete course, I’ so very much want to speak Spanish, Gedeon.


danNo Gravatar on June 6th, 2013 at 9:02 pm #

I feel so sad he is so picked on. I surely think he should be making “more” money because he is sooooooo ill treated. Wonder how much it would take to have him stop complaining? With all that arrogance and what comes out of his mouth, I haven’t a clue what he looks like. Who really cares?

hola , mi nombre es hadis . creo que Ronaldo no es guapo .!!!! Messi es rico , guapo y amable y tambien es un gran jugador <333

porsupesto, este hombre es un gran idiota,y un hombre muy arrogante. por dios


FaithNo Gravatar on April 1st, 2013 at 3:51 pm #

I think he is very handsome, and I could understand most of what he said, thank you. His accent was no problem for me, just his vocabulary. I thought he said NO TENGO OTRA EXPLACIACION, instead of No Tiene…that said, I am glad to see he is a HUMAN being with HUMAN responses to disappointment. Before I begin to call him a Whiner, I would have had to see the game, and determine whether the referees were really being unfair. And he is perfectly right, even if the rest of us don’t like to be reminded : People who are good-looking rich and talented, are often the target of envy from others less so. I call it the Lion and hyena syndrome, and have suffered from it myself from time to time.
Don’t hate us because we are beautiful!


BeverlyNo Gravatar on January 16th, 2013 at 9:30 pm #

no muy bien. He is very stuck on himself with no thought to others. Not handsome at all. Just arrogant. I need to work more on the lessons, but they are very easy.

my opinion he’s not good player no more because he use his big name for fun the people and he can fall down without any touch from the others players …and he not looking as man for be handsome he look as gay …sorry for that word….

Un poco de humildad no le caería mal a Ronaldo, sobretodo ahora que su país fue eliminado de la Eurocopa por España,

over-rated over paid and, what is conceited in Spanish? He could not even look at the interviewer whilst speaking, how rude! Not even particularly good looking.


roseNo Gravatar on March 13th, 2012 at 6:27 pm #

Drool drool, disheeeee, well i have still a lot of spanish to learn, but i can hear his portugese accent whilst speaking spanish. Haha.


Lynda AndersonNo Gravatar on January 6th, 2012 at 8:47 pm #

I am embarrassed to say that I am probably old enough to be his mother, but I already know who he is, what he does, and that, si, he is model handsome. I can see why opponents might want to mess up his handsome face…lol


AngieNo Gravatar on December 30th, 2011 at 10:01 pm #

The accent’s really something else :)…. I understood like only 50% but with the transcript it makes sense. Thanks for your time translating.

Apparently, this young man has a point, -and he has every right, especially if there is a bias. Hopefully, he is a good person with a great attitude, and sportsmanship. His coach would know for sure.

Yes he’s handsome; but humility is ever so much more appealing.

Uh he is just barely okay to me, beauty comes from the inside out every time. When you think you are high and mighty and maybe you are, but let others tell you that you are, or you wind up not looking so good, to nobody but yourself.

Dios Mio! Ronaldo your face is sooo handsome it isn’t fair on the other mere mortal players/refs. How can they concentrate on the game in the presence of such god-like wonder? The only fair thing to do is to play with a bag on your head.


Ann LesleyNo Gravatar on October 17th, 2011 at 6:52 pm #

Handsome – No, whining – yes. David Beckham -mmmm – now he is handsome.!!!

As for myself, he may be slightly above par in the ´looks´ department, but he always comes across as a very arrogant and petulant young man. Now, give me cute and cuddly Lionel Messi of Barca. with his superior footballing skills any time!!!

Gracias Marcus for continuing to send me emails – I have joined a Spanish Group where we exchange our knowledge of Spanish and I tell them about how helpful you are and how you make learning Spanish so easy. I am improving with every one of your emails. Thank you so much – Mavis, Blackpool, England.

True, human beings are naturally jealous. Only when the gods become jealous they take the human down. It is also said that if you delight in the success of another eventually you will achieve or share the same success.
